Are you thinking of leading some ‘team-building’ exercises?

Are you new to program leadership & don’t know where to start?

If you answered ‘YES’ to any or all of these questions, then this book is for you.

Jam-packed with inspiration and practical advice, Serious Fun describes a unique, yet simple, four-step model that will transform your programs from ‘Oh, no, not that again, ‘ to ‘Wow, that was amazing!’

If you’re a school teacher, corporate trainer, outdoor educator, conference organiser or camp/youth group leader, this book will help you create incredibly fun programs that will leave your group feeling engaged, valued and meaningfully connected to others.

Here’s what you’ll learn inside:

  • The seven mistakes program leaders make, and how to fix them,
