She has taught tens of thousands of people how to build a better sand castle in lessons, workshops and team building exercises; and she has reached untold numbers more with her best-selling book.

Had such a great time and learned so much. We only had the lesson for one hour, but I would've paid for 5....I would recommend everyone to check it out. Lucinda has so much experience and works well with children.
