Talks

I am an approved speaker for the Federation of Essex Women's Institutes (FEWI), and am happy to carry out history talks for a range of groups in Essex and south Suffolk. In addition to doing talks for WIs, I have been booked as a speaker at Friendship Clubs and Townswomens Guilds, and can also speak at local history groups.

My fee for any talk is £25, plus mileage. I am happy to be booked as a last minute/emergency speaker, but can only do evenings at short notice. Morning and early afternoon talks are possible, but do need to be booked a few months in advance.
