What people are saying
The students and teachers really enjoyed Michael Salmon's visit and have done some wonderful follow-up work since.
Steph was energetic, funny and worked hard to get all the students involved. She varied her approach well to suit the different age groups (including an upper primary cohort, which is really not her primary audience). She met our expectations and we would definitely use her again and recommend her to others.
Thank you. You are always so efficient, supportive and it is always great to feel that you are accessible and so patient with our queries and requests. For the above reasons you are my go to agency. We will be in touch soon about some more speakers.
Our recent visit from Hugh Lunn (and Matt Condon) was a great success. The two gentlemen were very entertaining speakers and gracious with their time for the event attendees. Their joint writers’ workshop was well very well attended and received. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend these speakers to other people.
Pat’s presentation was beautifully thought-through. He addressed a similar event two years ago, and it was heartening to see the extent to which Pat had changed his material and tailored his presentation to meet our brief. We challenged him with an audience consisting of both boys (Years 7-9) and their parents, and happily, Pat successfully engaged both age groups.

The Narrative Workshops in Year 3/4 conducted by Chrissy Byers were extremely rewarding for students. They were well run and made efficient use of time. The visual prompts used were engaging and made it possible for the students to clearly structure a narrative into beginning, middle and end. To make the writing more interesting and individual, Chrissy endorsed the use of a Hook Question. Most importantly, over the weeks, there was a clear improvement in the outcomes of the children's writin [...]
Simon was great . He manipulated his presentations to the age level and composition of the audience and handled both the 130 students presentation and the 50 students equally well. Would definitely get Simon back next year again if he’s available.
Just wanted to email you to let you know how much the students enjoyed your visit during Enrichment Day. Their comments were overwhelmingly positive. Thanks for all your preparation and effort in creating the workshops that the children enjoyed.
