Course Feedback

Very structured, easy to understand, very practical & good for real cases. Clear informative presentation, logical structure and entertaining. The course addressed our specific needs well.

Oban Multilingual Strategy Ltd

Just a short note to say that following on from the project management training, I've had a follow up session with everyone together identifying the tools that they and I thought would be most useful to incorporate into our procedures. They all said that they got a lot out of the training, and the tools identified as being most useful were the scoping and work breakdown tools as well as looking more in depth at project risk. In the last week, we have gone on to use these tools on three projects, and have found that they have helped very much.

Julie Campbell - Eschmann Equipment

Very comprehensive - I have attended PM courses before run by other providers but this was far superior.

Peter Coyne - University of Brighton

Not too technical/ theoretical. Illustrations of real-life business examples were useful, pitched at the right level/ pace.

Helen Bibby - Sport England

Exceeded expectations, great value, excellent training.

David Brown - American Express

This course was simplified for anyone without Project Management skills. Tony is a very engaging teacher and explained all examples perfectly. What I have learnt I can easily incorporate into my day to day role.

Phil Smith - Expedia Inc

A very well structured and taught introduction into project management. I will be looking at other course titles with Silicon Beach.
