14th December 2021: Get Set For Christmas!

Step Into Christmas this Holiday season with the gang from PSA South West. Don’t be Home Alone, join us on Zoom for an evening that will love, actually. Even if you are a Die Hard Scrooge – there will be something to tickle your tinsel. So be good to your Elf and book yourself a place today.

Jackie Barrie: Festive Fun and Games
In this fast-paced session, we’ll play three Christmas-themed games facilitated by Jackie Barrie FPSA.

She’s a copywriter, trainer, speaker, and author of two books written in response to requests from PSA members – ‘Unboring: Ideas and activities for online and hybrid events’, and ‘Experiential Speaking: Icebreakers, energisers & games for speakers and trainers’.

You’ll need to be ready to get involved and have a laugh (don’t worry, you can opt out of anything you don’t want to do). You might also need a fat pen and plenty of paper.

Can PSA South West beat Ireland, Thames Valley and Yorkshire? Those regions enjoyed this session last year.

Get a taste of things to come in this sneak peek from Jackie:
