From being an enjoyable part-time ‘hobby’ the repeat bookings for my talks grew to such an extent that I gave up a stressful job to become a full-time speaker. I give talks in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. Over the years I have increased the number of subjects that I offer to reflect my expanding interests. You can be confident of a high quality presentation.
In October 2016 I was delighted to be the guest speaker at the Annual Council Meeting of the West Sussex Federation of Women’s Institutes.
Many organisations including Women’s Institutes (I’m ‘in the book’), history, retirement, family history, church, horticultural, and social groups such as the U3A, Civil Service, National Trust, Rotary, Probus, Trefoil, ARA, NHS and CSMA have heard and subsequently re-booked me. I have passed auditions to become a registered public speaker and regularly speak at AGMs and Group meetings. I give my talks without reading from notes.
My talks cover a wide variety of interests, including Belgian and historical themes. Rest assured that your audience will feel entertained and informed.
About my talks...
My talks are illustrated with colourful slides using a lap-top and projector, and I bring all my own equipment, including a screen – along with a natty sound system so your audience will hear me – so you can sit back and relax. An electric wall socket and parking is all I need.
I am delighted to accept bookings in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex, London and beyond for a competitive, fully inclusive, fee – I don’t charge per mile – and I can often step in at short notice.
There’s more information about my talks on my website – scroll to the bottom of my talks and click through on the link.
I charge an inclusive fee of £115 within a 20-mile radius of my home which is in Kent. Further afield, I would require a contribution towards travel – but I don’t charge per mile.
For my regular clubs and organisations – I value your loyalty and enjoy meeting audiences I have got to know over the years, so if you are booking me for a return visit and the previous visit was within the last two years, you pay only the fee that you paid previously.
