“You are an incredible speaker and the talk was so perfectly pitched
for the audience and the atmosphere - a real triumph! We have been
inundated with positive comments and compliments, which is the icing on the cake.'”
“Many thanks for a truly interesting talk last night at Redhill.
As someone in the audience said, it was one of the best we have done
and I am in awe of the way in which you can deliver a talk like that without notes.
Comments from the audience as they left were excellent as were the written comments.”
“Julie Summers presented 'Everest needs you Mr. Irvine' at Derby Guildhall and stunned us all with her incredible knowledge,
depth of research, wonderful pictures and heartfelt passion about her Great Uncle, Sandy Irvine.”
Impeccable professionalism of execution and the brilliant way you put
over the story - neither too much, nor too little, but beautifully honed and
crafted to fit the audience and the time. The accompanying, memorable images
were so cleverly chosen and slotted in at the perfect moment: they will live
long in the mind.
Through her description of the complex research she carries out in order to prepare for her writing,
she enthused our students on the more personal side of World War 2 and what it was like for the
individuals who lived through it. An enjoyable evening was had by all.
“Great stuff. Write another book and come back
to talk to us again.”
“Well structured, clearly and enthusiastically delivered.”
“A powerful story and a magnificent performance!
Not a word was out of tune,
truly impressive and a pleasure to hear.”
“Thank you again for the fascinating evening you provided for us.
The response here from staff and the public has been really positive.”
“Julie is a marvellous speaker. Knowledgeable, articulate
and enthusiastic. Her appearance at 90 Years On
was one of the highlights of the weekend.
“Thank you so very much for coming up to Glasgow
last week to give our guests a most splendid lecture.
It was a huge success. I thought the fact that what
you said resonated with the experience of so many
in the audience first underlined how wise I was to
ask you to do this, the inaugural lecture. I also
thought the slides worked very well.
Afterwards many spoke to me about how much
you had moved them.”
“Really enjoyed the talk - makes one wonder how we cope sometimes.”
“I have heard Julie speak before and found her interesting,
colourful and clearly passionate about writing.
That inspired me to buy Stranger in the House and also
to attend this talk to hear more.
Julie's a joy to listen to and her energetic personality always makes her talks fun!”
“You were a 'tour de force'. Impeccable in your delivery style, and spellbinding in the personal
stories you chose to share with the audience. What a fantastic talk and one that will stand out in my
memory for years.”
