Just letting you know I have now set up a "twitter" account. I'm testing its effectiveness for business. If you wish to "follow" me on there I'm "Joel Howlett".

Have a magical day,

From time to time I run “Juggling Workshops”. These have been known to take place in Schools and High Schools as part of PE / Sport lessons and I have also run them at corporate events for adults as a “Team Building” exercise.

The workshop runs for 1 hour and is very interactive. I provide enough materials for 30 participants per session.

Apart from being a lot of fun I am learning that there a great many benefits (particularly for school students) to learning how to juggle! In addition to being fun and entertaining, learning to juggle is actually healthy for the mind and body. The challenge of juggling improves eye-hand coordination, motor skills, and physical fitness for both children and adults.

Research has shown that there is a direct relationship between the hand-eye
coordination learned through juggling and the ability to read, write, and reason.

If you’re interested in having a “Juggling Workshop” at your School (or child’s school), Camp, Retreat, Rewards Day or Event you can contact me on 49423593 or email
