 Comments made about Clare’s Presentational Talk  “Gateway To Heaven”

  • Clare Summerskill’s presentation was fantastic. She is inspirational.
  • I was so moved by Clare Summerskill’s readings that I did that thing that you used to see on the advertisements – I bought the book! I genuinely was hanging on her every word. Brilliant!
  • Clare Summerskill – you would pay good money to hear what she had to say. Eloquent, engaging, funny. Within moments of relating the content of her first interview, I just wanted to hear more. Her skill in public speaking was pretty much insurmountable. And what an inspired choice of speaker – who better to demonstrate to an audience of LGBT people how far we have all come than someone who has an archive of audio material to actually demonstrate it.
