Magic Parsnips is a newly established partnership combining the skills and experience of two individuals (Sally Beattie and Janet Aughey) who have worked in the education sector and creative industries. As freelancers they know and understand the importance of meeting deadlines, working to a budget and being creative about ways to achieve the end results.  They have experience of co-ordinating evaluations that follow events, managed by themselves and others. Writing succinct reports on the results and recommendations of the research and consultations are part and parcel of what Magic Parsnips can offer.


As a partnership, Sally and Janet bring combined expertise as well as the opportunity to collaborate in a creative way which produces exciting results. They have a wide range of contacts at their disposal and are used to working to a brief and clearly identified target audience however diverse that may be.
