"It's a brilliant course for understanding the key principles of project management. Really thorough and engaging; the exercises meant we could use our own real life projects when applying the techniques being taught. Our instructor was brilliant and I would definitely recommend her!" Lucy Paget, Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales

"A great course that is very good value for money. The excellent teaching and location provided a comfortable and relaxed environment within which to learn and share ideas with other people involved in project management" Brian Makepeace, Project Manager, University of East London

"I thought the trainer's delivery of the course was excellent. She was inclusive and ensured that everyone was finding it useful and able to relate the learning to their own types of projects. It was a little more in-depth than I personally probably needed but will stand me in good stead if I am brought into more formal projects within my company going forwards." Jen Smith, Global Studio

"It fits exactly what we needed. Content etc will give us the tools and techniques we have been missing. Ideal!" Peter Moss, Continuous Improvement Team Manager, Rochdale Council

"Not only was this super-affordable, the instructor was a fantastic coach! All the explanations where clear focused and straight to the point! Even with class discussions we always made excellent time every day! Definitely a superior service and a genuine bargain with assured results!" Taurai Ushewokunze, Projects Director, Vayase Consulting

"Parts of the course felt slightly slow but overall the pace was good and the content addressed in reasonable depth. I think a lot is dependent on fellow delegates and their knowledge/experience/willingness to contribute. I felt familiar with a fair amount of content already but it was helpful to have it put into a cohesive framework, and the structure of the course was really good from that point of view. The trainer's anecdotes were very helpful in illustrating theory in practice. I would probably revise my rating upwards once I have used the learning back in the office. " Anna Shaw, the Russell Group

"Very good course. Trainer's delivery was very good - making the course fell very "real" and highly informative. Examples given by the trainer were extensive and exceptional - making the course very enjoyable and making the course content memorable. Very good trainer, delivery style very relaxed and effective - which usually gets the best out of the delegates." Gloria Redwood-Sawyerr, GlaxoSmithKline

"The course was interesting and the trainer was very knowledgeable and made the content come alive. I would recommend the course to others." Devora Wolfson, independent consultant

"Informative, interesting - right level of complexity for me. Teacher knowledgeable. Occasionally felt my area of expertise did not fit into project management, which it occasionally slipped into, otherwise interesting.he best out of the delegates." Laura Thornley, University of the Arts London
