"Becoming aware of the fantastic and literally life-changing work by Stiofán and his colleagues, I invited him in to deliver a presentation to final year students studying on the BA (Hons) Communication Design course at NCAD. At this stage in the programme students need to write a proposal for their final degree project and the staff encourage them to use their creative skills to address issues which could be beneficial to society so I thought that Stiofán would be a perfect speaker to inspire them with this. Stiofán presented a wonderful visual slide show of his work and spoke with great insight, passion and humour, delivering even more than I had hoped for. The students gained enormously from his talk as he spoke constructively about his experience of setting up BiPolar Bear Wear; using imaginative problem-solving techniques; and dealing with other creatives,business networks and the general public. One of the students said that it was the best talk he had attended in four year’s of study! Stiofán’s personality along with his verbal and visual delivery will light up any room and I would recommend him wholeheartedly."
