GAMMY- The Play

May 13, 2024

Gammy is a portrait of an Irish contemporary rural female, fuelled by unbearable pain and vicious rage. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival, GAMMY is the love child of Andrea Arnold’s ‘Fish Tank’, Mark O’Halloran’s ‘Garage’, with a dash of Stephen King’s ‘Misery’. The story is set with all puppy fat, pimples, missing teeth at 31 and working in the same old shop. GAMMY is stuck. GAMMY never grew up. GAMMY got left behind. But today is different, today something is finally going to happen.

Lisa Regan provided excellent PR for GAMMY, a new play that premiered in The Project Arts Centre in Dublin. She expanded our audiences by publicising the play across national print and also radio interviews. We would highly recommend Lisa for her engagement, detailed approach and care she gives to her projects. Kate Finegan Writer

Think Less and Think Local

December 11, 2023

Circular economy and how we can make an impact in our lives

 We could not have made our sustainable shopping event happen without Lisa, she brought the idea from pen and paper to reality. Networking with the local independent businesses and seeing how we can best support and include them to guiding us on our advertising, she didn’t miss a detail. 

On the evening of the event, she showcased all the chosen pieces of clothing and spoke of the importance of supporting local, sustainable shopping choices and the impact fast fashion is having on our environment and local high street.

Lisa spoke with such warmth and energy and that was reflected back to her with interactive conversation and interaction from the audience, we can’t wait to work with her on future events.

ENTERPRISING23 MC and Networking Masterclass facilitator

October 11, 2023

We had previously seen Lisa in action, so she was our first choice as MC for our recent ENTERPRISING23 event – and we knew immediately we were in good hands. 

From the outset Lisa grasped our vision and goals for ENTERPRISING23 and became an invaluable member of the organising team.  Lisa did her homework and attended briefing sessions with panellists and participants in advance of the event, offering constructive advice and suggestions on format and tone.

On the day itself, Lisa skilfully guided the participants and contributors through the proceedings – reading the room and injecting both humour and a firm hand when required.  Lisa is a master of her craft and a pleasure to work with – make her your first choice too.

MC and Moderator for IdeasLab IWD CreateHER event 2023

March 27, 2023

Lisa Regan recently MC’d our CreateHER finale in the Druid Theatre in Galway city. Her commitment to the event from the outset was evident and she supported us in the venue selection to ensure the right atmosphere, worked with us on running order, theme and stage set up. Lisa captured the essence and feel of the event we were trying hold. Through her research, thoughtful questions and inclusive style she brought our vision to life, for what was a night us and the audience will remember for a long time. Although Lisa had one role on the night she gave so much more to the entire event than we could have asked for.

Effective Commination Workshop in Review by Jigsaw

February 14, 2023

‘Lisa delivered a workshop on effective communication to our Youth Advocates (YAs). Lisa has worked with Jigsaw in the past, and having recruited some new YAs we wanted them to have the Lisa experience! Our YAs are working on a number of projects and Lisa gave really good advice on interviewing techniques, delivering a radio show and using social media effectively. She really highlighted the importance of relationship building ,and how when it comes down to it each of us just wants to be seen, heard and validated. Lisa practices what she preaches. She tuned into the needs of the group and was a knowledgeable, engaging and funny facilitator. I would highly recommend her but most importantly the YAs loved it! A little snippet of what they had to say;

‘She is incredibly passionate about what she does and I learnt so much from the training!’ 

‘She brought a really great energy to the room and lots of great lessons on communication’

Lifeline- Galway International Arts Festival Galway, Galway Community Circus, Jigsaw and the Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland 

September 6, 2022

We have worked with Lisa in the past in a training capacity (side note: she’s an incredible woman to facilitate a group of young people) but this summer we were delighted to work again with Lisa when she moderated a panel discussion on youth mental health as part of the Galway International Arts Festival, in conjunction with Galway Community Circus & the Finnish Institute in the UK & Ireland


The young people involved have said that they felt so comfortable with Lisa’s approach as a moderator and as an audience member I can tell you that she’s second to none. She’s kind, compassionate and yet she not afraid to ask difficult questions. She makes sure to make all participants feel involved, valued and most importantly heard. And did I mention she’s a gas woman?! We’re so, so glad that Lisa was free to lead this discussion, it was all the better for her involvement.
