Feedback from my talks

Here are some recent extracts from emails I have received about my talks

We had been recommended to book her talk about The Roaring 20s and we are so glad we did. Delia’s PowerPoint presentation is really slick with some hilarious slides and the video clips lifted it to another level. She covers the whole era including fashion, flappers and films. There was a surprise ending which had us all clapping and singing. If you can book her you will not be disappointed. Sevenoaks Ladies Lunch Club


We booked the ENSA talk, which was a riot from start to finish. The story of the artists who entertained the troops and public during WW2 took us on a wonderful trip down memory lane. The video clips had everyone humming and singing along to songs from our childhood. Many of the audience were quite emotional by the end. We loved every minute of it. C.Ferguson. BOS Club.

We invited Delia to come and talk to us on Victorian London Street Life. Her talk had been painstaking researched and is further enhanced by a series of compelling illustrations. Her presentation is slick and informative culminating in some light-hearted audience participation. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative topic – highly recommended. Goudhurst WI


Delia’s presentation on ‘1930s The Golden Age of Hollywood’ did not disappoint! From start to finish she had us spellbound, from the tragic to the hilarious. Who would have known that she was a distant relative of Cecil B DeMille, one of the most influential filmmakers in history.
We also enjoyed watching some of the great dance routines produced by musical choreographer Busby Berkeley. Included in the talk were many original film clips, which by today standards look stilted but fun all the same. The time went very quickly as it was so enjoyable and as always to Delia’s high standards. Sue Hollings

WI Advisor

Delia came to talk about The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and its influences and her Power Point Presentation is stunning. Delia clearly loves her subject and her enthusiasm is infectious. She kept members enraptured for 45 minutes and left the best till last. Recommended. Bromley Over 60s

Delia’s talks on Women in WW1 are very informative and interesting. She has an engaging style and draws you into the subject matter. She includes interesting facts and delivers them in a way that keeps the audience riveted. Delia is certainly one of the best speakers we have had at our WI meetings.
