ACCOMPLISHED SPEAKER & PERFORMER

From presenting both the Guild of Food Writers Awards and the Great Taste Awards in 2005 to demonstrating on Celebrity Cruises in the South Pacific and QE2 in the Eastern Mediterranean in 2006, Glynn Christian is a very experienced public speaker and performer of all kinds.

For lovers of history, adventure and escapism he speaks

  • on the 1789 mutiny on Bounty and his great great great great grandfather Fletch Christian: Was Fletcher Christian mad - or just mad to do it?
  • on Bounty's revolutionary Tahitian women who became the first women in history to have the legal right to vote - in 1838, 90 years before UK women had equal voting rights with men.

The story of Bounty's Tahitian women is based on Glynn's own innovative research and presents an entirely new view of the famed Bounty story: the mutiny is very much a men's story, but what happened afterwards is one of the strognest - and least known - women's story.  It is empowering for women to hear, astonishing for men.

For everyone who eats, he'll talk about anything, but specially enjoys presenting comparative tastings of everything from chocolate to spices to cheese or tea and coffee.

Equally, audiences always want more when he talks about

  • Food facts and fallacies: why butter is better, why microwave is the fastest way to serve the world's healthiest food and why low-fat can mean high calories
  • Putting spice back into Christmas: why the Eastern Mediterranean is the best inspiration for a truly British Christmas.  With recipes to take away (QE2 notes).
