"...commissioned by the Commissioner’s office to develop a range of inspirational creative extras for the resource (UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child) as support material for a series of five workshops. These were of good quality and were delivered on time. Raw Talent were receptive to initiating changes and the company was efficient and met tight deadlines."

Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland


A national consultation was undertaken by the Children & Young People's Commissioner for Scotland in 2010.  I was contracted to create 'creative extras' to complement the resulting 'a Right Blether' Campaign.

The consultation provided an opportunity for children and young people across Scotland to say what was important in their lives and to take part in a national vote. I helped facilitate workshops for the Commissioner's Office and, by the time the Commissioner had finished meeting children and young people across Scotland, 74,059 had voted on what they thought was important.

Due to the tight deadlines required for the finished product, I contracted the excellent Kirsten McCrossan to work alongside me so that the work could be produced on time. Our teamwork was legendary (and very amusing) and we produced some brilliant resources of which we are both very proud.
