Skilled Speaker and Sto­ry­teller Dolores Sloan

Dolores Sloan SpeakingDolores Sloan is a vibrant and insight­ful speaker, who believes that his­tory is best under­stood through the expe­ri­ences of those who lived it, where the lis­tener can iden­tify with the uni­ver­sal life themes made vis­i­ble in the work and acts of both great and lit­tle people.

As com­ments attest by those who have expe­ri­enced her pre­sen­ta­tions, she is a skilled sto­ry­teller, who illu­mi­nates the dates and places of his­tory, enabling the lis­tener to view the actors and actions in a fresh light.

When­ever pos­si­ble, Sloan uses a mul­ti­me­dia approach to enrich her pre­sen­ta­tions, whether pro­jected images that accom­pany her talk or an exhibit avail­able to the audi­ence before and after the pro­gram. When pos­si­ble, she invites artists and indi­vid­u­als from the Jew­ish, aca­d­e­mic and greater com­mu­ni­ties to join her in pan­els as part of the event. She also offers pro­grams in col­lab­o­ra­tion with per­form­ers in music and other artis­tic genres.

Each pre­sen­ta­tion is designed for the par­tic­u­lar audi­ence and venue, whether attend­ing a lun­cheon, an evening event or a full day of pro­grams for diverse audiences.

I am writ­ing to thank you for the won­der­ful class you con­ducted for HaMakom Con­tin­u­ing Edu­ca­tion this past Thurs­day. It was immensely infor­ma­tive and beau­ti­fully thought through. All the feed­back I have had so far was pos­i­tive; peo­ple enjoyed the class and learned much.
