Poetry Review -- Jerome Rothenberg

"In the wake of my ongoing interest in forms of outside writing & thinking, I was made aware by Nicole O’Driscoll of a series of her poems from which the two posted here are taken (Nightshade and Whaling). The derivation, as much else, is local ... What follows here is more than simple transcription but the old [Irish] lore informs the work throughout that follows her transition from Ireland to the UK & a sense of “luminous details” that remains a mark of true poetry wherever found ... All that and something more." (J.R.)

The Job Search Formula -- Book Reviews from Amazon

"Yet the strongest point of this book is to help us realize our own value. This is not just "You are the Best so Go Get It" sort of thing. There are practical pointers and advise on how to make sure your potential employer would realize your value as well."

Oleg MedvedKov, Amazon reviewer


"This book not only serves people looking for a job but would serve employers too in reminding them of their purpose as an employer. I am going to be bold here and state that the level of compassion shown in this book reminds me of Tony Robbins. The sense of caring is on every page. I could go as far as to say this book is a guide on how to live an quality life with direction and purpose. I know this book will be one that I will refer to time and time again in the future, it is that good, a quality reference book that is more than just getting a job, it's a reference book to living a quality life that even Tony Robbins and Wayne Dyer would be proud of, Thank you for a "gem" of a book, I feel fortunate to have found it. Thank you Nicole!"

Dennis Waller, Amazon Top 1000 reviewer)

Writing Funding Applications

"Nicole developed a funding proposal for a specific grant-making organisation to raise money for Send A Cow's work in Uganda. I found Nicole to be very committed and reliable, and appreciated her suggestion that we meet to discuss the proposal. She grasped the concept of the project very quicky and took time to really understand what we were trying to achieve. Communication by telephone and email was excellent and Nicole has a very good writing style and a nice turn of phrase. She was also very willing to discuss the proposal and to make recommended revisions, delivering the finished document in good time. I found her very helpful and a pleasure to work with."
