Having left school without a single GCSE and after developing a complete loathing of Public Speaking at college, Eve was surprised to discover that she actually loved being in front of an audience, speaking about her life and talking about the various topics/causes that are close to her heart. Over the last eight years, she has been humbled by some of the lovely things people have said and written about her. She hopes you don't mind her sharing some of them with you.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your talk and will surely get another invite. You are so talented and a really spirited raconteur! Your enthusiasm for your subject came across and a nearby person said "what an interesting life which makes her (Eve) an interesting person". Your talk was a breath of fresh air, light hearted and fun. Diana, Guest at Strood WI
Just writing to say how much everyone at our WI Group Meeting enjoyed your History of Harrods talk on Thursday - the feedback has been fulsome to say the least. It seems that everyone's dream is to shop or even work at Harrods and your descriptions of various events held the audience entranced. Furthermore, the history was interesting as lots of the members had lived through these times mentioned particularly the Princess Diana connection with regard to Mr. Al Fayed. Your talk was not only fun and informative but also your attention to detail regarding our whole event exceptional. The handouts, which every member took away, were entertaining and relevant and the quiz you devised regarding the talk was lots of fun for the members and guests. It was also good of you to make an effort to stop at each table and chat while leaving the hall which often other speakers don't take the trouble to do. The feedback from members has been very positive and this event will be remembered as a great success! - Felicity Cripps (Secretary Barnston WI Group Meeting)
I can't thank you enough for the fantastic talk. Lots and lots of positive feed back, which is always a feather in my cap - Pat Kelly, Dunmow U3A
Thank you so much for your really interesting talk. You had the biggest number of members attending and you had them eating out of your hand. A masterclass in public speaking. - Haverhill U3A
We were greatly entertained by your stories, facts and revelations, all delivered with such verve and charm. The audience was fascinated and left greatly enlightened and intrigued by your experiences. The whole Committee joins me in sending you our sincere thanks. - Jane Barnett, Secretary, Westcliff and District W.I.Z.O.
Thank you for such a fabulous talk. So much information imparted in an amusing and interesting way, it kept everyone riveted for the full hour and wanting more. The feedback from our members afterwards was great, they loved it. - Sue Smith, The Ipswich Institute
The show ran so smoothly, Eve, and that is no mean feat, all things considered, especially with some bossy, grey haired woman, who was dripping wet, kept changing things and asking you to say this and that. We at Greyhound Walks are way, way, way, grateful for your wonderful MC-ing, professionalism and patience. - Janet Peacock, Founder, Greyhound Walks
Thank you so much for coming today and giving so much pleasure to our group. Your presentation was first class. It’s so good to laugh and hear about someone’s fascinating life. You made it sound so easy but I suspect that there was a lot of hard work and hours of practise for you. - Alfreda Thistlethwaite, Diss Ladies Luncheon Club
On behalf of everyone at the Matching Friendly Club, I would like to thank you for visiting us, you certainly entertained the members and they thoroughly enjoyed your talk. - Pat Baines, Secretary

Everyone had a good evening and enjoyed your entertaining talk. Some people have asked if we could do it again next year. - Colin Knights, Chairman, Friends of Frinton Theatre
The MC kept everyone up to date with the changes in schedule, invited people to spend money on the stalls and visit the various re-homing stands, all delivered in a lovely, clear, casual way. - Rob Tiffin, Chairman, Greyhound Walks
Eve gave us a most interesting talk about her life as a Celebrity Booking Agent interspersed with "behind the scenes gossip" and Peter entertained us very well at our Christmas Party. Altogether a very talented pair. - South Woodham Ferrers WI (an extract from the SWF Press)

We have had people doing the announcements other years and I haven't been able to understand what they were saying, but this year I could understand everything you said. You are a real pro. - Claire Reilly, Committee Member, Greyhound Walks Show 2014
There are Speakers and then there's Eve! - Guest at St Barnabas Ladies Club, Old Heath (Footnote: I hope this means it was ok! Eve)
You are such a brilliant speaker and your presentations are always delivered with verve and enthusiasm. - Guest at the Haverhill Ladies Forum
We had this excellent speaker last night, she was talking about Harrods. She had books and bears and a bears and a big banner showing lots of photos.
