MORNING SESSION "You can discover more about a person in an hour of play, than in a year of conversation.’ Plato
Denise Devlin, NLP Master Practitioner and Founder of the international company Positive Parties ‘Training With A Difference, brings the fun elements to business. Getting everyone relaxed, building rapport with each other and then inspiring and motivating the team, sharing, story telling, laughter and games. Although people will have to stretch out of their comfort zones, no one is ‘singled out’ and only those who wish to volunteer to demonstrate the positive mindset teachings, will be asked to do so, the rest of the team enjoy the group activities.
As in any party though, the participants receive prizes and party bags, which is so different from any training day they will ever have encountered. And of course they will remember all that they have learned because they will have laughed and had so much fun.
In the morning session Denise helps the team shake out any negativity that might be holding people back. If someone is stressed or is feeling anxious in their job, the morning will definitely allow then to forget about their troubles. It’s a joyful morning, getting people talking, sharing positive stories and achievements about their own lives and this breakdowns the barriers and gives them the opportunity to really connect with their team mates.

Denise Devlin, NLP Master Practitioner, author and Founder of Positive Parties ‘Training With A Difference’ is a passionate, innovative and creative entrepreneur who came up a ‘out of the box’ idea to use in training and coaching and it has taken Ireland by storm. In 2010 she saw a gap in the market for 'Training With A Difference' as people were so bored with the usual ‘death by power point,’ long lectures and pages of handouts. So she created training delivered in a ‘party style’ setting that would teach new methodologies and tools, be positive and fun, thus Positive Parties® was born.
Now coming together in partnership, Joe and Denise will deliver these workshops and programmes which are ‘interactive and fun’ whilst equipping the participants with tools and techniques to have a Positive Mental Attitude, be more conscious, awakened, resourceful and resilient in the workplace and home, have less stress, to be more self-aware, mindful and positive.
The training methods used in the workshops, conference sessions, programmes include: • NLP – Nuero Linguistic Programming • CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy • EI – Emotional Intelligence • PP – Positive Psychology
I have known Denise since she came up with the concept of Positive Parties and have always admired her enthusiasm and positive attitude. Denise is a well trained professional and uses all her skills in the development of innovative and unique training programmes. I have seen her deliver workshops to a wide variety of audiences. She is always able to tailor her approach while not compromising on the core skills she is delivering. Denise recently delivered a workshop for Letterkenny Chamber and the feedback was excellent. The short workshop was designed to energise the participants and it really worked. By the time they came to the formal networking element of the event they were really engaged which resulted in much more effective relationship building which was one of our aims. I would highly recommend Denise for all types of corporate group training. Innovative and enjoyable with very strong foundations, that's Positive Parties, Training with a Difference Toni Forrester, CEO at Letterkenny Chamber

I loved the presentation style, fun approach, interactive and energising session". "Very energetic and fun loving approach to a learning experience" "It was very interactive fun workshop day not like the other training days when the energy can be lost" Feed back from the Tesco HR Managers
I found the Positive Party not just a great learning opportunity but also a lot of fun. I had two people joining the team at the time and it was a great way to integrate them into the existing group. Even the more critical members of the team thoroughly enjoyed it and felt that it led them to examine and question how they respond to events that occur. A very enjoyable and worthwhile team building event with lots of emotional intelligence development activities thrown in. Mary Howick, VP of HR Pramerica
It was my pleasure to have met & listened to the inspiring no BS approach from Joe Dalton. He is one of the most naturally charismatic speakers I have ever heard.
