Development and learning time


Whether in life or in business, we count on leaders to make the things that matter happen.

Ceri has a passion to help people to achieve goals through positive reinforcement.

We help you to find your voice to become the best leader and communicator possible and feel valued in society.
This is why Dinky Donkeys Experience has a focus on individual confidence development and team building for adults, children and families.

All activities incorporate these values, even when having fun! How about the fancy dress donkey derby obstacle course as part of your event? Or spending time learning about how to care for donkeys, take your favourite donkey for a walk as part of your team building experience? Or what about combining services and spend longer with us and enjoy a unique event!!

If you think your relationship, family or team could benefit from improved communication, collaboration and cooperation, let our expertise help you, your family, your business and team flourish.

Communication Skills:

One of the most important element is how to communicate and the learning is developed in a positive way with the donkeys. The Dinky Donkeys can help to teach the client about the importance of respect, patience, clear instructions, encouragement and voice tone.

These beautiful and gentle creatures ca help the client to understand about responsibility.


Team Building and Leadership:

Are you looking for a way to build better leaders, better teams and improve results?
Maybe you’ve been challenged to plan a unique and unforgettable offsite event for your group or team?
Whether you’re a small business, a large corporation, a  team or a family- Dinky Donkeys Experience can create a bespoke session that meets all your needs with a fun, engaging and interactive team event. We are able to provide you and your team with theory based sessions which you can then put the principles straight into practice working with the little donkeys or maybe the donkey derby obstacle course..or maybe you choose both! It is fun, stimulating and thought provoking!

Leadership and team building theory “classroom” sessions can be held under the gazebo, outdoors with the donkeys or even in their stable..this will prove to be the most different and best theory session you have ever experienced! You tell us what you want!

Developing a positive attitude:

We can help you bring emotional intelligence and the opportunity to focus on solutions rather than problems.
Spending time with our little donkeys can help you to achieve a more positive outlook and help you manage your emotions. This can help bring authenticity to your behaviour, which in turn can assist you in building trust with colleagues, friends, family and teachers.
By understanding exactly what you need, we can ensure we provide the right services for you and your team.

Development and Learning Time isn’t just for adult groups.

Team Building for Children:

We offer team building for children, welcoming schools, youth clubs and sports teams to help youngsters develop leadership and communication skills that will set them on a great path for life.

Vocational Qualifications:

This can benefit children and adults and can assist with job or higher education applications. With this in mind, we offer vocational training in the form of AQA’s unit Award Scheme.

We believe that our services can help a wide range of people to achieve qualifications, learn new skills and build confidence and self-esteem.
