Beatrix Potter was not only one of our best-loved children’s authors but also a respected naturalist and conservationist who helped establish the National Trust.  This lecture explores her life, art and stories.



John Ericson

Formerly a lecturer at the University of Bath where he was Director of Studies in the School of Education with responsibility for the professional development of teachers. He has worked extensively overseas as an educational consultant and this has given him the opportunity to give lectures and presentations at conferences all over the world. In 2011 and again in 2017 he undertook extensive lecture tours of Australia and New Zealand and has been a popular speaker on the NADFAS circuit for a number of years.

In his professional life  he has developed a particular interest in presentation skills including the role of pictures  in learning and the appropriate use of PowerPoint. This coupled with his ability to relate well to people of all ages and backgrounds makes him an impressive and confident public speaker.

As well as the talks he has developed from his professional background, he offers presentations on an eclectic range of topics that are derived from his diverse interests and enthusiasms such as, Pub Signs, Children’s Book Illustrations and the Shakers of North America. All his talks, are entertaining, highly informative, very well illustrated and presented with warmth and humour.
