About Dianne Mannering, creator of this website...
I took retired early because I wanted to write a book and I realised that if I didn’t get on with it, it just wouldn’t happen. My original talks were based round the royal and noble characters in my two history books – see bottom of page for information. My talk Born To Rule was supposed to be based on a new book – but the book never happened though the talk has been very popular.
About my talks...
My talks are all Power Point presentations and I use approx 100 illustrations in each talk, often using my own cartoon sketches when I can’t find suitable graphics. I supply my own equipment though I’m happy to use in-house equipment when it is available. All of my equipment is PAT compliant.
Talks last between 50 and 60 minutes and I have a longer version for organisations who like a break during the presentation.
My Fee is £120 plus modest travelling expenses when more than 10 miles from my home in Alton, Hampshire. However, if your venue is further afield modest travelling expenses will apply.
I moved to Alton in Hampshire in February 2017 and I am very keen to get established in the area, so if you are interested in my talks, but don’t like my fees – then give me a ring and lets talk about it.
