Dear Renee

I wish to thank you and share with you what an impact your workshop made on me. I valued the information you shared so much. Your insight into what we need to remain mindful of as role-players in education was thought-provoking, relevant, captivating and… INTERESTING! It was just what I needed in the final and CRAZY fourth term of the year.

I (on a personal note) was in such admiration of you as a speaker and presenter in particular. I have been privileged to find myself being called to present at a number of seminars, workshops and conferences over the past year or two, and I know how much work it takes to truly make a lasting impact on a room full of (usually tired) teachers. I found it inspiring to be on the ‘other’ end of the motivation, and to realise that sometimes one person truly can send ripples of positive energy through a room full of people. You have such a gift!

I would love to chat more in the future, as I see you as a model of where I dream to be in a few years time.

Keep inspiring, enlightening and educating… South Africa needs more people like you!
Warmest regards,

Renee has been helping me in a support/coaching role and I would really like to thank her for her endless patience. When I am weak, she is sees my strengths and when I am lost she sees my path. At the end of the day we all need to find our own power but having a guiding hand and a constant flow of ideas is invaluable when your brain feels like it’s filled with spaghetti.

Thanks so much Renee, Sandy

We had the privilege of hosting and attending a workshop by Renee Lighton at Plettenberg Bay Primary School in February. The workshop was attended by parents and teachers and was a huge success.
Renee is a dynamic speaker, who gets everyone involved, excited, and thinking! Her ideas are endless, and most importantly, fun.
And the great thing is, the activities don't cost anything, as you can use items from around the house - so no excuses.

I believe every parent and teacher left the workshop having learnt something from Renee, and will be learning through play with their children!
Thank you for a great, positive, fun evening. We will definitely be back for more the next time.

I felt like you were talking directly to me as I am battling with discipline and classroom management this year.
I intend implementing your suggestions from tomorrow”

“I am so fortunate and blessed to have attended your workshop at St Anne’s Primary School last night.
I just wanted to take the opportunity to Thank You.
I left the workshop a different person ? I found the workshop extremely positive, encouraging, an eye opener, life changing ?

I look forward to the positive changes that will be made in our family and the effect it will have on my child”

I’ve recently met with Renee & am inspired & energised by her ideas using recycled materials as learning equipment.

I highly recommend her courses. It’s particularly good for coaching parents on how to PLAY (talk/learn) with their young children.

Thank you so much for the very energising dose of your empowering medicine - you are very good at what you do, you connect with your audience in such an impactful way.

Second time round!

Just mailing to say thanx for another informative evening last night. My daughter 5 years and son almost 2 are already both engaged in the fun "games", and really got me thinking a bit more and seeing things in a more useful and creative way.

Parent & teacher workshops make a difference!

"Thank you so much for last night, our parents were all talking about it this morning; how engaged and informative you were, how much practical advice they received, and some even gave feedback of games they played with their boys this morning!"

"All odds seemed against me the morning of Renee's workshop but I arrived on time for one of the most unforgettable hours of 2015. Renee is an inspiration to anyone involved in educating children. The skills learnt that day were put to work that very week. The book made out of a recycled A4 page was the one that I'v tried with children of all ages and their ideas were amazing. The idea of making learning tools from recycled items is inspiring another project at the school too. Thank you Renee for having your finger on the pulse and your "light on" the needs of the children of the world."

Hi Renee

Thank you, once more for your Time, Effort and the Positive Energy at the "LightOn" workshop. I wished you could see the work carried out yesterday at the first session. The literacy tutors immediately implemented and applied themselves in their one-one experience. Of course we had loads of smiles and wide-eyed learners enjoying every minute! The principal popped in at the sessions and immediately called me aside and expressed gratitude, when he saw the little one's smiling....

Thank you, thank you for always inspiring and motivating the reading helpers. As you said... They are the MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE in the Life of our children.

Hi Renee
Your talk was just so inspiring, thank you. I gave my one year old a tin with bottle tops and she sat playing with it for about half an hour, while we were waiting at the uif offices. AMAZING!!!!
Thank you again! I am also loving the book!

I wanted to say thank you so much for your guidance and input during this year. After our first meeting with you in January (2014), there were one or two things that you said to us that have just made all the difference.
We have stuck to it and we have had a very successful and happy year!
