Praise for Michael Jecks as a Speaker

“Mike was an absolutely delightful and amusing (to say nothing of charismatic) speaker, whether addressing the conference attendees at the closing banquet, participating in a panel, or being interviewed and fielding Q&A from the audience.”

“… but what amazed me – although it probably shouldn’t have – was the outpouring of positive feedback from conference attendees who told me Mike was one of their favourite guests of all our Bloody Words guests of honour.”

“I’d invite him back in a flash”

‘Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Michael for helping create such a wonderful event!’

Heather French, Scarborough Libraries.

‘Please could you pass on to Mike our thanks for his talk on Wednesday; it was so well received, and we’ve had people coming in especially over the last couple of days to say how much they enjoyed it.  His encyclopaedic knowledge of mediaeval history is phenomenal (maybe he should turn to quiz shows to supplement his impoverished author’s income?!) and his humour and warmth made the evening a pleasure for all of us – we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a speaker.’

Nicola Royan, Nottingham University

Another use for paper. No email marketing, just good, old-fashioned methods. They work, you know!
