Hi, I'm Jayne! I'm 35 years old and am a writer, lecturer and historian with 20 years experience.
The following are just some of the topics I can give talks on:
I can tailor my talks to suit the audience, often use active participation if preferred and can incorporate a Q&A session to close.
If you haven't seen a topic you'd like covered above, please get in touch as this list is by no means exhaustive. I am based near Ludlow but travel the length and breadth of the UK giving talks and hosting a range of evenings.
I look forward to coming along to your event soon and giving your guests a thought provoking, entertaining and informative talk!
