Jacqui is an entertaining speaker on a range of topics, but specialises in talks related to Jane Austen. She likes to take a novel angle rather than a stuffy academic approach, adding personal stories from her experience of other Janeites, Regency balls etc. As a distinguished member of Toastmasters International, she has made over 100 speeches on a wide variety of subjects, and is very experienced in putting together and delivering amusing speeches.
Wherever possible, she speaks in costume.
In addition to speaking she also does readings from Jane Austen to bring the text to life.
