My SECRET WEAPON (that is just FOUR WORDS) for
delivering a brilliant program everytime!
Hey, you're my customer. And if you're
not happy, then it looks bad on me.
So, if you're not satisfied with what you discover
from 'No Props' or 'Count Me In' then I don't expect ...
or want ... to keep your money.
Just simply whip off an email to me, return the books
in the post and I'll happily refund your money in full
(including the return postage).
"... Count Me In and No Props are
MUST HAVE books for anyone
wanting to create a positive
atmosphere in the class.
Brilliant activities that are
written so clearly and are easy
to follow. My students love the
variety and the fast paced
changes of activities. Couldn't
be happier ..."
- Heath, teacher, VIC
"... 'No Props' is one of the
biggest selling education books
we have - no activity leader
should be without it! There is NO
SUBSTITUTE for such a superb book
filled with quality games &
- Red Rock Adventure Prod, QLD
"... The activities in Count Me
In are great. A huge plus has
been the way that the activities
get rid of the children's habit
of being picky about which
partners or groups they end up
with. I pointed this out to my
group and they were blown away by
the fact that the activities
become so much more fun when they
don't worry about social issues.
Thanks for putting together such
a great resource - keep up the
brilliant work ..."
- Bernard, teacher, NSW
"... Mark, I have no words to
describe my joy. The book is in
my hot little hands :-). It is
great, and I'm sure it will be
good for our team ..."
- Dimitar, Youth Wkr, Bulgaria
"... I work for 3 and have been
using some of your idea's
(games/ice-breakers) in my team
warm ups when we have cold
calling days, they have all been
a massive success and I wanted to
say thank you..."
- Kerry, corp' trainer, VIC
"... I just wanted to let you
know how successful your No Prop
ideas have been with all our
groups. Even corporate groups,
which is amazing, because most of
the middle aged men thought they
wouldn't get anything out of
these "games"... I just can't
tell you how much I have
personally got out of all your
wonderful ideas ..."
- Liz, Camp Program Leader,
"... I LOVE your "inspiration"!
Thank you for all of the great
ideas which I so appreciate in my
classroom! I'm so sad that I
loaned "Count Me In" to a
colleague, who has lost it... :-
( It's the beginning of my
school year, and that book really
is one of my core pieces ..."
- Sharlene, teacher, USA
"... Mark is a fantastic
facilitator and I just love 'No
Props'. It is packed with loads
of activities, the book is easy
to read and handy to have
- Liz, Camp Director, NSW
"... ATTENTION facilitators,
teachers, group leaders, youth
workers and party animals!!! The
No-Props book is a fantastic
resource. Over the years, I have
used nearly every activity in it
and found them to be a powerful
way to get people connected and
create an engaging atmosphere.
Mark has really captured a
truckload of wisdom and placed it
into this great resource that
should be in every facilitator's
- Michael, Consultant, QLD
"... The volunteers and staff
went crazy for the No Props book
we gave them - they don't have
anything like that there, and
considering the lack of funds and
resources they're working with,
the books are proving to be
invaluable for their kids
programs. Most of the guys
wouldn't let them out of their
sight for the week they were on
camp with us ..."
- Ang, Comm Dev Officer, VIC
"... Mark has a fantastic
approach to delivering games that
are focused on getting people of
all ages involved in fun and
activities. 'No Props' outlines
hundreds of games that are easy
to deliver... the information is
well presented and easy to
understand... it's an excellent
resource for anyone involved in
managing and training groups.
Check it out! ..."
David, Outdoor Educator, QLD
"... Over the years I'ver always
been able to refer to Mark for a
new take on an old game, and in
particular what can be done with
the least number of props. Both
of his books have a ton of ideas
about to achieve the most with
the least. Take a look, you'll be
pleased you did ..."
- Karl Rohnke, author, USA
"... the books are amazing - I've
been using the activities on a
weekly basis ..."
- Blake, teacher, WA
