“Act the maggot took me to a place I haven’t been since I was a child. A place of pure joy. You meet great people from all walks of life and form firm friendships. I got to express myself in a way that I could never do in any conventional adult learning scenario and it made me feel like I was 10 feet tall.”
- Shane Lynam, Director, Elearn.ie

Great team-building testimonial just in!

Team“Amy facilitated a 2-hour team building / energising session for 50 colleagues and it was an outstanding success. The group quickly lost their inhibitions and everyone got to know each other in a completely new way. Above all everyone smiled and laughed throughout the session which was talked about for weeks afterwards. Amy followed the brief given to her and I would have no hesitation in recommending Amy if you want to inject some energy and fun into your team.” Frank Keating, Pensions Administration Manager, Aon Hewitt
