About her talks...

With the exception of talks on a musical theme, which consist of myself plus instruments, most of my talks are based upon PowerPoint presentations, for which I need a table; a screen or blank wall for projection; and power supply. I am happy to talk within Derbyshire, plus those areas of Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire bordering Derbyshire.

A Day in the Life of a Victorian Governess

Public Speaker Liz Keeley talks about A  Day in the Life of a Victorian Governess.

This talk could be described as “a costumed interpretation which takes you through a typical working day in the life of a nineteenth century governess, incorporating historic text books and extracts from diaries and autobiographies.” It contains some of the same material as my schools talk, but has the advantage that it involves no electrical equipment, so is suitable for awkward venues, places that have problems with insurance, or as a substitute talk that can be offered at times of equipment failure.

(this is a Stand Alone presentation)
