12 months onSeán Love receiving the 2011 Impact Award

12 months on from Winning a Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Impact Award, Seán Love from Fighting Words reflects on his time so far as an Awardee. 

The SEI Awards process feels a bit like a graduation, and my experience last year was that the previous award winners came across as modest, confident, wise and generous. A bit like your slightly older friend/brother/sister, who’s been there already, trying to reassure you that “it’ll all be grand”. There is no training for the role. I was certain last year the Frances and Dara were operating from a script, but, if so, Annalisa has forgotten to forward it to me. This year, being cast in that role of “elder” myself, I hope I measure up for this year’s awardees.

12 months on…

Fighting Words has had a great 12 months since receiving an Impact Award from Social Entrepreneurs Ireland (SEI). We’ve hosted another 10,000 students over the past year in free creative writing workshops and courses; and, on the basis of the applications we receive, we know we could fill 4 centres around the country, every day, on an ongoing basis.

A note to 2012 Award Winners

A note to 2012 Award Winners

A short message to the new Award Winners from Michael Kelly of GIY Ireland, 2011 Impact Award Winner. 

It was very strange being at the awards on Oct 18th and being there as an alumni, rather than an awardee! At the same time, it was nice to be there and not to have a sick feeling in the stomach as I did the previous year! A huge congrats to all the awardees – all of your projects are simply awe-inspiring. Congrats also to the SEI team on pulling off another incredibly inspiring event – as is always the case with SEI gigs, I returned to the GIY trenches feeling reinvigorated and re-inspired.
