TESTIMONIALS

We had Vivian visit us for our open day event as a guest workshop leader and it was incredible. The students were buzzing, the energy, enthusiasm and passion he brought to the workshopwas infectious. He worked really well assessing the abilities of the students and created different versions to ensure every student was being challneged but not overwhelmed. He created loads of fun little activites as well to get them all laughing and engaged. Could not recommend him highly enough and will definately be working with him again!
