The presentations from the house that sat down!
‘Surviving The House That Sat Down!’
‘Surviving the house that sat down’ is Alice May’s signature presentation. It is a positive and uplifting talk based on the events of three years ago when Alice’s house partially collapsed one day and she and her husband and 4 children were forced to move into a tent in the garden. They were on the verge of losing everything.
It was shocking! And yet it was not the end of the world. Amazing things can come from disaster.
As a direct result of what happened that day Alice is now happier than she has ever been before.
Using her own personal artwork as illustration, Alice’s signature talk gives a flavour of her inspiring journey from the ruins of her home to her life now as a published author, artist and public speaker.
There are two follow up presentations to Alice’s signature talk:
