Maybe you’d prefer a Cooking Without Looking demonstration with Julie making her famous truffles, or you just want to hear about the day she refereed that game of nude touch footie? Julie can tailor her talk to your event, conference, forum or meeting.

“People hire me for loads of different reasons.” Explains Julie “from keynote speaking at conferences to day retreats as part of team building.” “I’ve done Festivals, ice breakers, after dinner speeches, regional forums, A.G.M’s, prizegivings, teacher development days; I’ve even done a “Pie off” as part of an annual Festival.”
“I always try to find out what the person organising an event wants from their speaker” says Julie. “Time frames are critical when the organiser hires a speaker. It’s so important to stick to time and deliver what people are after.”

“I was speaking to a group of teachers at a high school one morning” confesses Julie, “I was asked to speak for 30 minutes knowing that they had to get away to class.” “I kept my eye on the time with my braille watch and finished with about 30 seconds to spare, just before the bell rang!”
