Covering the globe…

Understanding different types of lectures:

Port lectures are when Genevieve is asked to talk about the places to be visited during the voyage and the tours available to complement it. 

Destination enhancement lectures are where she is asked to talk about the geography, history, culture, explanation of important landmarks and specialist relevant features per destination visited.

Here is information on Historical destination enhancement lectures…

Where ever the destinations may be, where ever a cruise ship may travel, 
Genevieve Dawid presents Historical Enhancement Lectures by covering “the origins of destinations” then and now - relating the history of a destination to the present day of any location.

“Your explanation of the history in relation to the destination is exceptional in your lecturers. You make it light and entertaining to all and not the heaviness and lack lustre of other lectures I’ve seen. I’m a retired Head master and history teacher, so I know what I’m talking about!”

Genevieve Dawid is an excellent speaker. I have attended several of her lectures on different subjects and find that she is able to hold the attention of her audiences no matter how serious or slight the subject matter might be.

Always well prepared she is able to convey her passion and knowledge of a broad range of subjects with ease and great charm. I have watched her lectures on television too and they work just as well as when delivered in person. I am delighted to wholeheartedly recommend Genevieve for any public speaking engagement.

My wife and I attended several of your port talks during a recent Mediterranean cruise.
We found all the talks to be very informative and really loved Genevieve’s relaxed and friendly style.
It was a real pleasure to hear, not only about the various port histories relating to how they are today including the best places to visit.

So thanks very much Genevieve, and also thanks again for taking time out after your talks, to answer ours (and other people's) questions.

Genevieve Dawid talks were highly detailed and were undoubtedly the result of a huge amount of research and were based upon actual personal experiences in each of the destinations.

The talks were delivered in a clear and engaging manner. With out exception all the talks were attended by a maximum capacity audience. There is no doubt that the talks greatly added to the overall enjoyment of all the passengers
