As a long term professional speaker and member of the Cruise Speakers' Association I give illustrated talks and presentations to the Women's Institute, the National Association of Women's Clubs, all other Groups, Clubs, Institutes, residential and rehabilitation homes, Schools and Colleges etc based on my work and books. For the duration of the ongoing Covid 19 Pandemic all my talks can be conducted via Zoom or Skype. For my short YouTube video please click here I currently broadly focus as follows (or any permutations thereof):
I find that a talk of 45 minutes or so suits most audiences, with time for questions and discussion. When appropriate and requested, I can include space as required to discuss writing techniques and offer suggestions and ideas for prospective authors. I am based in Battersea, London, and generally undertake engagements within Greater London and the Home Counties using public transport. However, I can cover all of UK and indeed abroad. A donation towards a project we have in the Central Andes of Peru for the creation of an International Embroidery Centre and Museum is welcomed in lieu of fees. There is no charge for charitable organisations. Contact me
