”Vince has such an engaging manner that every last person at this workshop was up and participating in the fun activities. As I looked around the room, all I could see were smiling, happy people letting go of their inhibitions and having a great time. Not only does Vince engage you in these play activities, he delves into why we need to play – not only for the children we work with, but for ourselves as well. Vince was intuitive to the needs of the group, his sense of humour was respectful, and his love for his field of work was palpable. The feedback from everyone, bar none, was fabulous and positive. Many commented that this was the best workshop they had ever been to.”
