Project Management Testimonials
Excellent one day overview of project management fundamentals delivered by an experienced facilitator.
Robin explained everything really clearly and concisely. I found the examples useful as it provided context. I will apply the “Business Case Template” to what I do at work.
Very informative course, able to be used in any management role. Highly recommended.
The workshop covered the essentials well and how to apply them in a straight forward way.
I found the course very useful and felt that the content was appropriate for my current needs.
The course gave me a good understanding of how to manage a project from start to finish. I have not taken part in project management but this course gave me the confidence to want to start managing projects. Robin was an excellent facilitator, dynamic and knowledgeable.
Rebecca–Financial Ombudsman Service
I liked some of the repetition as this will help me remember what I need to do when I embark on my next project. Thank you!
Robin is highly approachable and engaging in his presentation style and he presented his information clearly. This was a great opportunity to not only reinforce my existing knowledge but to enhance my skill set to be better equipped to tackle the project management required in my role.
Jesse – Dairy Australia
Very practical and supported by facilitator’s experience.
It was beneficial to have all the ins and outs of how to manage a project successfully – all the things I need before starting a project which are essential to anyone running projects, so yes, I would recommend it.
Great hands on knowledge which Robin used as examples for explanations. His knowledge came from experience, not a text book. It was great that the program was not set in concrete and could be structured around the participant’s needs.
Robin’s experience is clear and good examples were used. He is friendly and personable. The course provided a good overview for the time allocated. I appreciated that we were able to focus on areas that we really wanted to because were a small group.
Doug Mulitalo–Future Knowledge
Very thorough workshop. Robin was very good and knows his stuff. Robin really knew what he was talking about and was very engaging and confident in delivering the content of the course.
