Talks arising from the memoir

Talk 1: Mostly we had it good

 

We baby boomers have lived through lucky times, and in my book I record my own journey through the last five decades of the 20th century. In this talk I share some of the main lessons, such as the advantages of being born just after the end of a major war, the unexpected twists of technological change – and the dangers of relying on your memory alone. This talk has been given to Epsom and Kingston Rotary Clubs.

 

 ‘An entertaining, Interesting and thought provoking talk ... I heard discussion breaking out all over the place...’ Richard Deavin, President, Epsom Rotary Club

Talk 2: Write up your personal history

 

This talk takes would-be memoirists through the process in a series of eight straightforward steps. The first is Put Up or Shut Up – and the last is Preen Yourself (on your success in finishing the task). In between, the talk will look at researching, the writing process, editing, and publishing. The talk was scheduled to take place at the Cranleigh Literary Festival on March but was postponed because of snow.

Talks are about half an hour, but can be adjusted to suit, and include questions and answers. I do not give a PowerPoint presentation, but I might choose to show a couple of old photographs.
