Feedback from KBC Bank on Positive Parenting Programme

Sheila recently facilitated a lunch and learn session on Positive Parenting as a part of our Employee Wellbeing Programme. We had a hugely positive response from all the attendees. Sheila is an extremely engaging presenter whose seminars offer real life solutions to parenting problems which are communicated in a very accessible way for all the attendees. We will definitely be inviting Sheila to work with us again; she has much to offer on a broad range of topics. Everyone who attended the seminar was vocal in their appreciation of her advice and their ability to practically apply it to their own situations.”       Read more about Sheila’s Corporate feedback

Feedback from Abbott Ireland

“Sheila O Malley of Practical Parenting came to speak at our Tots to Teens Event in Abbott Vascular Clonmel on “Happy Me, Happy Home Life”. This talk was so far reaching that it struck a chord with parents with kids of all ages, and even employees without kids!!! Sheila spoke about how to get “you” in a happy place, and how then this will positively affect all relationships in your life. Sheila was engaging, humorous and most of all down to earth, feedback from attendees was that they could understand and relate to Sheila easily, that she made everyone relax and harvested an engaging atmosphere where questions and clarification was welcomed. We are definitely thinking of having Shelia back again to speak!” “Best hour I’ve spent all week!”
