Speaker Rotarian John Miles -
Subject: Global Sights Solutions
John Miles is a member of Leatherhead RC and became actively involved with The Guildford Rotary Eye Project, now known as Global Sight Solutions, almost six years ago. He is a Trustee and was awarded a PHF, and more recently The Service above Self award, for his work in serving the avoidably blind.
John’s an industrial chemist and founded two companies providing protective coatings to the engineering trade. He retired aged 56 in 2002 and joined Rotary in 2003. His wife Fiona is a past President of Leatherhead RC. They have been married for over thirty years and have two grown up children.
In addition to his work in helping to provide free eye care to the poor in India, Africa and elsewhere, John is also a speaker for Population Matters, which addresses the issues of an ever growing human population.
His fun time is spent enjoying very loud music, sport, travelling, and having published a joke book in 2007, with a second released on an unsuspecting public in July 2015, he attempts to keep abreast of the more humorous side of life!
