About her...

Illustrated talks for schools, groups and clubs. My talks last approximately 45-50 minutes, with additional time for questions and discussion. Some talks include a handout or complimentary brochure for the audience. I’m based near Maidstone in Kent – and travel across the county to the outskirts of London. For some of my demonstrations I just need a large table. When other equipment is needed, I bring it all along myself – including a projection screen for my on-screen presentations.

About her talks and demonstrations...

In addition to my  one-to-one work with personal clients as the owner of IMAGINATION Image Consultancy, I have developed a number of talks and demonstrations which I present to larger groups, e.g. ladies’ sections at golf clubs, women’s groups and social clubs, charity fundraising groups etc.


My fee is normally £60 plus expenses for a 45 minute talk and questions.
For charity groups and smaller groups, this fee may be negotiable. Many of my talks include a complimentary brochure for the audience.

If you’ve been let down at the last minute by your speaker – why not give me a ring? I can often make myself available at short notice with one of my talks or demonstrations so that your audience won’t be disappointed.
