Participants’ feedback:
“The social games training in Prague was prepared in a professional way, with a programme that could fit diverse groups of participants. The teachers Adam and Marc shared with us a lot of their positive attitude and encouraging energy so that everyone got really involved in all of the exercises. There was everything that we needed: a lot of playing, laughing and training but also theory that helped us to understand what are we actually doing and why.” – Hanna Śmiałowska

“To były bardzo merytoryczne trzy dni. Obydwaj prowadzący – Adam i Chris (pewnie jego imię zupełnie inaczej się pisze) byli świetnie przygotowani i jest to chyba jedyne szkolenie na jakim byłem w dziedzinie cyrku, na którym praktycznie wszędzie wyrabialiśmy się czasowo (były obsuwy, fakt, ale żadna nie sprawiła, że miałem poczucie, że coś było niezaplanowane albo przeszacowane, raczej że wytworzyła się taka ilość treści do przegadania, przepracowania, że żal było przerywać).” – Łukasz Pieczykolan
