About Marion Pettet - chairman of the Chelmsford Ballet Company
I am the Chairman of The Chelmsford Ballet Company, an amateur company with professional standards. I was elected as Chairman in 2010, having been involved with The Company since 2000.
I am retired from full time employment and now devote myself to the promotion and running of the company. I started to give talks in 2013 to raise awareness of The Company’s work within the local area but found that I really enjoyed giving the presentations. I became an approved WI speaker after successfully auditioning for the Essex Federation in October 2015.
About my talks...
I have given talks to U3As, NWR groups, Rotary Clubs WI etc. My talks are accompanied by Power Point presentations with some truly beautiful pictures and both last approximately 40 minutes but can be lengthened or shortened. I bring some tutus and costumes to illustrate both talks. I supply all of the equipment including a screen where necessary. All of my equipment is PAT compliant.
I do not charge a fee for my personal benefit but ask for a donation of £40 (negotiable depending on size of group) for The Chelmsford Ballet Company (most gratefully accepted.) For myself, I ask for reasonable travel expenses.
