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

Funny story on Creative Writing

Tapping into one’s creativity, revealing oneself through stories and writing exercises with a group of like-minded aspiring writers can be a lot of fun but it also has its challenges.

For all of you who know what it is like to be part of a creative writing group or are about to learn, this short story by Lucas Gardner published in The New Yorker is hilarious.

Join us next week in Rathmines for a fun, creative writing class. There are still some places left. It starts Tuesday, May 10th and runs for six weeks. 7.30-9.30pm – €180 per course. To book your place, call 087 374 4926 or
