Hi Ian,

Regards,

Mary.

Mr Maber I found via another group who were singing his praises, and on enquiring managed to book him for one of our meetings.

 His Talk was entitled 'Surviving the Sixties'.

 Our senior group found him a very good story teller, with good graphics to enhance this nostalgic trip down memory lane. 

We enjoyed it so much that he has a return booking with us later in the year. A good speaker with a world of knowledge and keeps you awake, and interested, well worth his fee.

I just want to say how much the ladies of Grantham Ladies Probus enjoyed your talk entitled "Only in India". It made me thankful that our summer temperatures never reach over 40C, and that we can travel safely on most of our roads and railways!!

Not only did you give us an interesting insight into your time there, but you certainly made us laugh.

We had a lovely afternoon and would like you to entertain us again please.


Kind regards,

Julie Caunt

Only in India

 

Thank you for your excellent  illustrated talk to the first monday club the other day.

 

What members liked was the easy  presentation , the great humourous pictures  as we went on the journey and of course the linking narrative from yourself.

Somehow telling the story when it has happened to oneself adds a greater dimension.

 

It  served to add or reinforce some stories that members had heard about the huge continent and its ways.

 

As you know I have been asked by members to engage your services for later next year , which in due course when I plan Autumn 2017 I will contact you.

 

 

Regards

" "Laughing my way around the world" is a truly hilarious presentation and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

The technology is superb and we saw parts of the world that we are never likely to see in a lifetime. 


It just brightened up the whole day. 

Will be arranging another visit soon.

  • On behalf of Rochford Ladies we wish to thank you for a most enjoyable evening. 
  • Your presentation was outstanding and left us 'gobsmacked'. We were captivated by your tales and humour. It's not every day you see so many old ladies smiling all at the same time. As Frank Carson would say, It's a cracker. We hope to see you again in the not to distant future. 

  • Best wishes Rochford Ladies, Boston.

Hi Ian


Thank you so much for coming to entertain our group of mainly elderly visually impaired members at VI- SN (Visually Impaired South Notts).  

  Your talk was very entertaining and the musical interludes were received well and extremely appropriately placed. Although some of the members were unable to see your slide show of pictures to accompany your talk your description of what was on the screen did, I am sure, enable them to imagine the setting and put your words into context. It was quite evident by their interaction and responses that they were well entertained and interested.

   "Laughing my way round the world" was a totally appropriate title for your exploits on your travels and  taking the listeners on a journey through the alphabet made them guess at what was to come next.

  A great evening enjoyed by the members, committee and helpers alike. Thank you for entertaining us.


Chris Gardner - events organiser VI- SN ( Visually Impaired South Notts)

Hi Ian

 

On behalf of all the U3A members who attended yesterday’s meeting, I would like to thank you for a most entertaining presentation. I’m sure that many will raise a chuckle when something prompts them to remember some of your incidents. The changes from countries in your alphabet to items such as “lost in translation” was interesting, though by the time you got near the end I had worked out that X would be Xray.

 

Best regards

  • Hi Ian, 

  •  You visited our WI last thursday I and I am sure I can speak for all our members who throughly enjoyed your entertaining and light hearted presentation. I was watching our members reactions and they all appeared to enjoy what they heard and the way you presented same. Peoples comments were ,'When can we book him again.' 
  • I think that says it all. 
  • Many thanks.

Ian's talk Take Two took us into the amazing world of animation.  

Ian was undoubtedly a well prepared

speaker with his own head mike, speakers and high definition projector and screen.


 A brilliant speaker with huge experience and

command of his subject.

 

Look forward to seeing him  again  in December

Ian talked to us at our club  recently and delighted us with his observations of the sixties years , particularly as most of us had memories of the subjects and which were easily revived . This certainly made a change from the military stories which we are used to and I will be inviting Ian back to talk to us in a year or so .

Good Morning Ian, it was a pleasure to meet you, and the feedback was very positive.  Entertaining and informative were the most common comments.   

I do hope we can book you for another talk in the future, until then, continue laughing around the world.

 Kind regards

Hi Ian

I would like to thank you for coming to

Radcliffe on Trent last night to give us a

talk on Surviving the Sixties.

I think you could tell that our members really

enjoyed the talk and  also the

unexpected sing song.

I hope we will see you again in the future

It was also nice to meet your lovely wife.

Thanks again.
