“Creating an education and family resource for the Capability Brown Festival was quite a challenge, as 18th century historic landscapes are not particularly central to the current school curriculum. Neil rose to the occasion admirably, with thoughtfulness, knowledge and a sense of humour. He has been a pleasure to work with and we have been delighted with the outcome.
Neil was determined to make sure the pack was suitable for all whilst not compromising on quality, which can often be a difficult ask given the number of stakeholders involved. I believe he succeeded, listening and blending the needs of all venues and the specific audiences to create a fantastic selection of resources.”
“This has been a really inspiring training day – given me plenty of think about.”
“The support you have offered to venues and colleagues has left new levels of confidence, knowledge and skills. Your training days have been a key highlight of this work and have provided a solid foundation on which venues, colleagues and organisations can develop.”
& Louise Sutherland (Regional Learning Manager)
“Neil delivered excellent training days, engaging us all with great ideas for activities which we could take away and use. Neil also worked as a mentor to staff from several museums and galleries in our group to help them develop new workshops and build upon their recently acquired skills.
“Within ERA, we still regularly refer to the ideas that Neil showed us and have often discussed how we’ve been inspired by him to try new approaches. I personally have found that working with Neil has changed the way I deliver workshops. ”
“The thoughts that you kicked off in our heads are now part of our regular working / planning pattern. I was using some of them today with BEd Yr 3s – they were most obliging when it came to hot-seating.”
