After 20 years creating and delivering events and workshops for children based on his books, he knows a fair bit about self-promotion and how to design fun, engaging workshops for children of all ages. Be that in a shiny new classroom, freezing village hall or wet tent…
In this workshop, Paul will be sharing his top tips and tricks on how to create fun events and workshops, to help you promote yourself and your work.
