"Matt ran a very casual course which managed to cater to an audience with a wide range of experience, pulling in the experienced to share their experiences to help those new to the subject matter. All whilst being run on-line. Great example of how on-line training can work."
"Excellent course delivery, engaging tutor, pitched the course and content very well. A really solid foundation of bite size content across project approaches, tools and techniques. We had such a skills mix of attendees with different levels/exposure to project management and the trainer blended it together very well. I genuinely believe all attendees took something away from it form our apprentice through to project and programme managers. My lesson will be to reflect on our team principles / approaches / templates and see what elements we can improve on..."
"The course was well set out and whilst there were varying levels of experience in the team, Matt created an environment where we could raise queries, refresh on elements and gain greater knowledge and understanding on project management approaches and tools. The team's purpose of the course was to bring us together to be able to use the same language and set of tools adaptable across our future projects."
"Very informative course with lots to learn. The trainer was very helpful and was always on hand to help if I had a question or was unsure on a particular topic."
"Very well run course, informative and well presented"
"Very insightful course, thought provoking and lots of tools and techniques provided to integrate into my personal and professional life."
"Charlie is a great instructor, providing the right balance of expertise and deliverable clear instructions. He was incredibly patience in answering the repeated questions and had a very personable approach that helped in being able to understand a quite difficult subject."
"I really enjoyed the course as it gave me lots of tools to improve the leadership of my team both downline and upline. Some tools I was already using just from experience and it was good to learn more about them and how to optimise them. I have greatly enjoyed meeting and learning together with fellow attendees through shared experiences via the application reports. The learning and immediate application of the tools, which is a great emphasis of the course, is key to actually improving personally and professionally in the duration of the course, rather than the course just being one that was attended but never really utilised. It not only teaches how to improve self but those around you, be it those in your direct supervision, but all colleagues you work with as demonstrated a few times by fellow attendees.
We started as a class based course and migrated to online via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s imposed social distancing which in effect did not take away from the learning and experience. We were still able to do our application reports and group discussions. I’m glad it was still continued online in this unprecedented time as it helped me handle managing the team who are all bar one working remotely from home. Our shared experiences of our work environments meant we could pick up different ways of dealing with the current working scenario from the different work and Insights colour perspectives, like how the yellows need more communications via calls and video chats, not just emails as they can seem impersonal, especially that they are stuck home all by themselves when they are the type that actually thrive in groups.
I highly recommend this course for those in leadership roles or hoping to one day be in those roles. Our course leader Matt Reed is awesome in how he presents the material and uses some of his experiences to emphasise the topics and their use. He utilises comedic moments quite well to emphasise some of the lessons in the sessions. I’d still recommend a class based session fully, or for first 3 or 4 sessions and then moving online because you learn a lot more about fellow attendees in person, and online you just continue to build on the rapport you have already established."
"Really good course, very informative and interesting. Matt was a really good tutor kept everyone involved and ensured we had time to ask questions throughout. Would highly recommend!"
