Most recently he has been a Guest Speaker on RMS Queen Mary 2 during her 2016 World cruise. Lindsay is also a Lay Preacher (Congregational Church), and willing to lead or assist with church services, and also to lead/assist with pub-type quizzes, if either/both of these would be helpful on-board ship.
