I am now offering my talks via Zoom.us
I have been delivering my talks since March via Zoom.us - it's been a year of learning new skills!
It enables your members to view one of my talks in the comfort and safety of their own homes on their PCs, laptops, mobile phones etc.
I have my own Pro-Zoom.us account which means that there is no limit on the length of the on-line meeting.
I would send you/the secretary - a link with simple instructions for use that you e-mail to your members during the week before.
The members click on the link at the allotted time on the event to 'enter' the meeting. (There is no need for the members to download Zoom.us - they just use the link in the e-mail to enter the meeting).
They will see the presentation slides - see me giving the talk - can ask me questions -and they can also see and hear other. You are welcome to talk to each other before and after the talk - give notices etc. - it all adds to the pleasure of the event. I have even had WIs singing Jerusalem on-line! It's an easy and fun way to keep groups together in these strange times - and keeps people safe.
I can even provide a personalised welcome slide for your group/Society/WI to greet them at the start of the meeting.
I will gladly set up a ten-minute meeting with you (and your committee?) - so that you can see how well it will work - just ask.
E-mail me or telephone to discuss arranging this easy-to-use facility: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07900 637171
Testimonials about my Zoom.us talks
The Barton Society - in the USA - In September I was delighted to give a talk in the USA - using Zoom - to present my 'Elizabeth Barton - the Maid of Kent' talk to the USA Barton Society. The chairman described the talk as "awesome!".
Shepherdswell WI: 'Thank you so much for the talk and for your help guiding our members with the on-line technology. It was great to see everyone saying hello to each other at the beginning and for them to see how well an on-line meeting can work. The talk was brilliant and I'm sure it made a nice change, in the current climate, for our members to watch something other than TV from the comfort of their own home. Oxfordshire WI were entertained with my 'Life and Times of Edith Cavell' talk via Zoom in May and responded: "Everyone so enjoyed your talk this afternoon – it was absolutely fascinating and we all learnt so much. It is lovely to be able to sit back and have information and facts delivered so eloquently - a real treat. In July - Thank you so much for another wonderful talk. The story of 'Eva Braun - Victim or Contriver?' was just so fascinating and told so well by you – very much enjoyed by the audience. We've received lovely e-mails and comments.
