“Thank you for the most amazing day!

The setting, placement and aims of your day were exactly what we hoped to have gained from coming.

I love how your realism and understanding of the sector projects shine through! Thank you to the whole team for what you do!”

Bliss, Manager

“Thank you for such a fantastic conference on Friday. Like last year, I bought along my managers, and we all learnt so so much – it was great for the managers to learn about how much work getting potential families to come in is, and what they can do to get those conversions and keep that customer focus going.  We all loved the positivity ideas Laura had and we will be using her 6 questions as the basis for our staff questionnaire this year.

It was a fantastic and very inspiring event, thank you for putting the fire back in our bellies!”

Charlotte, Owner

“What a day! I am totally inspired and raring to put what I learnt into place.

I got to meet some amazing people and network with other owners and managers who feel the same things as me.

Thank you Team Jigsaw for a fabulous day of CPD!”

Claire, Manager
