Don't take our word for it.
Find out what those who have experienced The Why Not? Enterprise have to say.

Rekha Bhakoo

Primary School Head Teacher

"I learnt to encourage myself to be 'myself' and not use masks. To have more courage! As a head, sometimes you have to show your vulnerability – it makes us more human – hopefully this will help me to relate to my staff even more."

"This was one of the best professional and personal development programmes I have been on. A very liberating experience!"

Linda Lynch

"Having now had time to digest and reflect on it, I have to say that it was an absolutely unique experience and really ticked all the boxes of what the team were in need of at this moment in time."

"I had a day's annual leave yesterday (Monday) and came in today and everyone that I spoke to was still buzzing from the experience."

"Susan related how her friends had commented on how happy she'd been at the weekend. Other people were talking to other teams about their experience... still laughing about it!"

"So all in all a very unique and memorable experience, so thank you."

"We've witnessed first hand, the positive effect this course can have on every member of staff – from the managing directors to the accounts manager."

"If we can get people to play and be less cynical, then that makes for better creative work. De Castro's Creative Intelligence workshop brought everyone together and created a buzz in the agency. It's transformed even the most cynical of people."

"Two weeks after the workshop the agency won a new business pitch for one of our biggest clients – but more importantly – we did it with a smile on our faces. Pitches are normally very high stress situations, but this was different, everyone just seemed to gel together."

Andrew Shanahan

Writing for the Guardian

"Over the three days [The Art of Creative Intelligence workshop], it becomes clear that the course operates on two levels. First, there is a practical element. Using [de Castro's] considerable experience, she gives tips on how to master presentations. The second is learning to fail, to play and to be at ease."

Jane McCartney

Executive Director of Human Resources, NHS 24

"The special away–day with Enhance and de Castro was exciting and educational. As with the NLP programme, it has opened up new ways of thinking and working for both management and employees ...and it was great fun."

Matthew Rene

Account Handler

"I had heard bits and pieces about the previous year's class and had seen its results on others, so was eager to attend and excited to feel the effects. I really enjoyed the de Castro, 'The Art of Creative Intelligence' weekend workshop. It wasn't quite the epiphany I was expecting and others had waxed lyrical about. However, after the three days, I was left with an outlook and a feeling, that I can only compare to how I felt upon my return from a year spent travelling. I found it refreshing and reinvigorating; a reminder not to take myself and life so seriously but to enjoy the now. I hope it lasts. I would definitely recommend it to others."
