Happy New Year everyone. 2015 was a great year for Positive Parties®. We now have new customers, new contracts, PP Founder and CEO Denise Devlin won the Female Entrepreneur Award at the Strabane Business Awards in October, has had some great speaking roles at conferences and both business and charity gala’s, and we have moved premises. We hope that 2016 is as eventful or even more exciting.
Our goals for next year include Denise completing her Masters in NLP this spring, finalizing the Positive Parties® franchise training manual and starting the franchise process here in Ireland, taking Positive Parties to England and Scotland and further developing our market in Dublin. We also plan to expand our @Sports and @Dance Positive Parties, as well as working on exciting new project in the voluntary sector.
Our popularity in the Corporate world continues to grow. In November 2015 we delivered a full day Positive Parties® workshop, as part of a team building day, for 20 People Managers (HR Manager) with Tesco’s. Denise was very impressed with Tesco’s ethos and how they look after their staff. Up on the board as you enter the staff area it says ‘Have FUN at work,’ now how many organised have that as a principle, do they! The team really enjoyed the Positive Parties® workshop which involved lots of learning and lots of fun, and NOT a power point presentation in sight! The general consensus with all organizations we to is that the is that the ‘party style’ training is so unique and so refreshing. This is some of the feedback we received from the Tesco’s Team.
“I loved how interactive the day was. I feel like I have gotten to know my PM team a lot better.”
“Presentation style, light, fun. I learned new techniques to remain positive. Great day, thanks.”
“The fun approach, well pitched, met the audience on the right level”
“Loved the presentation style, the fun approach, interactive, engaging session. It’s refreshingly different.”
“It was a very active fun workshop, not like other training days when the energy can be lost.”
“Very energetic and fun loving approach to a learning experience.”
“The way the day was delivered was very engaging, I learned new skills that I can used at home and work and for life.”
“A great day, positive, very relevant and I am walking way with ideas and new tools.”
“I learned new techniques that can be used every day. A really enjoyable day, thanks for a positive experience.”
For 2016, why not give your Team the gift of a Positive Parties® workshop. Learning new tools to be and stay positive at work and at home, and thus being happier and more productive at work, its a win win really.
