“Rejig have been incredibly flexible at providing tailored solutions to meet our requirements. They facilitate activities that are fun, interactive and engaging to the extent that our students often don’t realise how much they’re learning.”

"NOW Group are fully committed to delivering services that are designed and delivered in collaboration with our participants.  We aren’t just doing it because it is now the “in thing”, we do it because we know it is the only way to ensure the services we deliver drive genuine impact.  We are seen as one of the leading innovators in our sector, because we value diverse ideas and shape our organisation based on what our participants need to excel.  

 

Patricia and Rejig have been with us every step of the way.  From the very early days when we started to shape up our JAM Card concept right up to today as we work with our participants to reshape our services during and after the Covid-19 crisis.  NOW values our key strategic partners and Patricia and Rejig are always our first port of call when thinking about innovation and future shaping.”

“Rejig delivered an excellent workshop for our companies, challenging them to look at their creative process in a new way. The companies came away enthused, armed with new knowledge and a set of tools which they can practically use in their day to day business as video game studios.”

“EU funded Innovative Entrepreneurship project has been working with Patricia on delivery of design thinking and ideation workshops in Cyprus since 2019. Each workshop had a different focus and was aimed at groups of people with different backgrounds. The greatest part of the concept and the way Patricia facilitates it is that it is applicable to a diverse range of topics (green business, tourism, business ideation, innovation, social entrepreneurship etc.) and participants (including me) leave the workshop physically tired (due to level of brain activity) with a richer perspective.”

“Rejig has been instrumental in helping us drive a creative mindset across the Connected project.  Patricia and her team have provided us with many eye-opening insights into how we can do things better.  The international links and experiences that Rejig have brought to us have been invaluable, providing us with networks and knowhow that we otherwise would not have been able to access”.

“ Innovation Bootcamp was fantastic to work with people across multiple disciplines to take me out of my comfort zone. The chance to take a problem that was very new to me and create improvement methods gave me the opportunity to develop my leadership ability and communication skills. Definitely improved my ability to work under pressure! To create wild ideas without judgement was also great to allow creativity to flow!Patricia’s creativity and enthusiasm is displayed throughout the course. Her ability to explain a concept to someone at every education and background level is truly special”.
