About the speaker...
Sandy Leong is an historian, passionate about bringing to life the sort of history that doesn’t normally get into mainstream history books and is a lively and entertaining speaker. She specializes in the period from the early 1500’s through the 1600’s in Britain, an exciting time in the country as it was changing fast; and in the Viking period, who are much more than the stereotype of raiders in horned helmets.
She is a professional speaker, and published author, married to a Malaysian, spending time living and working in the UK & Malaysia. She has had a lifelong career as an educator and developer of people; she is a qualified teacher, past CEO of a Racial Equality Council; Guest Lecturer at Universities and Colleges of Further Education; a regular speaker at conferences; guest speaker with P & O, Fred Olsen and Thomson’s cruise ships; and sought after speaker for U3A’s, WI’s, Historical Societies and other groups.
Other interests include, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees for a large Charity and Immediate Past President of Loughborough Speakers Club, and an active member of the National Association of Speakers Clubs, holding the Advanced Speaker Award. She is also a member of a Storytellers group, performing locally.
