Through a short and fascinating glimpse into the lives of my ancestors, we learn more about Jenny's realisation that the loss of her parents would mark the end of an era of those generations who were part of a chapter of British Indian history. This talk is truly inspiring for anyone who recognises the importance of preserving a family heritage; it's also an entertaining presentation in which we discover the ambitious lengths one would go in order to achieve the impossible and the outcome of one's efforts in a positive and delightful way. Serendipitous stories which reflect the journey from start to finish enhances this charming illustrative talk.

Meet The Speaker, Jenny
Jenny’s career has been the culmination of several instinctive paths in her life which have led her to enjoying being an author and now a public speaker. Her years in BBC Television production followed by a career based on travelling around the world re-ignited her passions for cooking, India, research and writing. Jenny manages to bring to light the personal stories behind five generations of her ancestors who lived out in India during the British Raj. Her stories are brought to life spectacularly with a treasure trove collection of family sepia photographs which go back to 1865.
