An Enjoyable Evening!

Last night I was invited to a businesswoman's group, Business Inspired to give a talk on Marketing. I had a very warm welcome and after initial introductions around the room I was up front to give my talk. Although there were representatives from many different types of business in the room from hoteliers to artists I was (hopefully) able to give a general overview on marketing using heritage examples I have worked with and an overview on the increasing possibilities of social media and new media opportunities.
It was a warm welcome and despite being the only chap there I wasn't too intimidated, the only tricky spot was when I was asked if I'd be interested in going on a flower arrangement design course. Not being able to distinguish much beyond daffodils and poppies I felt this probably wasn't for me.
If you are a businesswomen in the Bristol Area have a look at http://business-inspired-bristol.co.uk/default.aspx and perhaps go along to one of their meetings.
I am now preparing for a talk in January of a different kind, "Berkeley: A Town that Changed the World". See http://www.jennermuseum.com/events.php
If you would like to see what other Talks I can offer see http://www.copperphoenix.co.uk/toursandtalks.html or contact me if there is anything specific you would like!

Crown Jewels story comes to Gloucestershire



The Edward Jenner Museum


For Immediate Release




Crown Jewels story comes to Gloucestershire



Keith Hanson, Chief Exhibitor of the Crown Jewels will be giving a talk “The Inside Story” on Thursday 26th November at the Old Cyder House in Berkeley. As part of the continuing series of Talks on interesting and diverse subjects find out what it is like to live in the Tower of London and be responsible for both the display and security of the world famous Crown Jewels and for the iconic White Tower, housing priceless artifacts dating back many centuries.


What’s it like to live in the Tower of London and to be responsible for the display and security of the world famous Crown Jewels? Do you lie awake at night?... or is that the fault of the ghosts of those incarcerated long ago? As the Chief Exhibitor of the Crown Jewels, Keith Hanson should know. His main responsibilities are the security and display of the Crown Jewels and the Crowns and Diamonds exhibition. He also looks after the running of the oldest part of the Tower of London, the White Tower, which contains unique artefacts belonging to the Royal Armouries, such as the armour of Henry VIII. Keith is also a member of the Queens Bodyguard of the Yeoman of the Guard, which involves attending many State and Royal events.


Organised by The Edward Jenner Museum, and following on from the success of the University of Bristol’s Dr Alice Roberts talk in Wotton Cinema, the Old Cyder House talks are selling fast, so reserve your tickets now! The Crown Jewels talk will cost £10 per person including a glass of wine.


Sarah Parker, Museum Director said: We obviously can’t bring the Jewels themselves to Gloucestershire but we have done the next best thing in bringing the Chief Exhibitor to talk to us. How often do you get an insight into something so unique and special as the Crown Jewels and the Tower of London?

More information can be found on the new museum website, www.jennermuseum.com where there is also information on hiring The Old Cyder House and about other events at the Museum.

Bookings for all the talks can be made in advance by calling 01453 810631 or emailing info@edwardjenner.co.uk

Notes to Editors:


THE OLD CYDER HOUSE, Berkeley, Gloucestershire



1) The Old Cyder House is at Dr Edward Jenner’s former home, The Chantry, in Berkeley, Gloucestershire. Dr Jenner lived in the house from 1785-1823, and it was from here that he pioneered the world-changing vaccination against Smallpox.


The Old Cyder House is available for training, conferences, business meetings, product launches and exhibitions throughout the year and is situated in the Old Coach House, where cider was originally brewed, hence the name.
