Thanks for a really great course last week. It has really inspired me to get better at managing my time – sorry managing myself 😉 both inside and outside of work. In fact it inspired me to instigate a brainstorming session with my husband at the weekend where we mind mapped out our life and started some goal setting. So not only will this course improve my efficiency at work but there are also many tips I can apply to my personal life too. So Thanks! It was a really fantastic use of my time for just one day out of the office.

I found the Time Management course with ICML extremely useful with many tips that I can use in my role for a long time to come. Peter was very helpful and explained things to us in a simple and easy to understand manner

Great course, hugely motivational. Thank you.

The course was great! It gave me a boost of motivation and confidence to get more done and focus more on what is important to me and my KPI’s. Everything I learnt I can directly apply in my role. Peter is a great presenter; this is the best course I’ve done in a long time.
I learnt more from the one exercise on saying ‘no’, then in a two-day course on assertiveness elsewhere!
