Talks and workshops

Thank you for your interest in my talks and workshops.

I have decided to give my presentation clicker a rest for at least the rest of 2022. This is for a variety of reasons, not least two young children and a global pandemic! Although I could potentially do virtual talks, the reality is that most events clash with the kids’ bedtime or my day job, and it’s just too much to juggle at the moment. If you are looking ahead to 2024, please do contact me.

If you are looking for a local speaker (for ‘real’ as well as virtual events), I recommend talking to Education and Outreach at Norfolk Record Office and taking a look at the rest of the Register of Qualified Genealogists.

You can find a fantastic back catalogue of local talks (including a few of my own!) on the Norfolk Heritage Centre Podcast. When I left, it was in its infancy, but it has since grown to be a source of many an interesting diversion.



“I would like to thank you officially for your presentation. You did an outstanding job and thank you for your enthusiasm for the information you presented.”

“Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation the other evening, the evaluations were unanimous in their enthusiasm, and I found it all fascinating too – very inspirational, so thank you.”
