I think this course would benefit staff across all levels � I now have a number of new strategies that I can implement at work over the short and long term.

  • Excellent and highly commended course for anyone. Provides useful tips to manage time efficiently at work, running a business or at home. The presenter was excellent, and had interesting examples, video clips and course material without too much theory. The presenter engaged with the audience well and the audience did the same vice versa. Enjoyed the group tasks as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, will recommend it to anyone and will use the time management tips in my work, professional and home environments.

Good sense of practicality about presented material, and I came away with a feeling that I could quite simply implement these techniques into my daily routine to improve my time management. Facilitator was friendly, approachable and logical in the way the material was presented, and was definitely able to provide good suggestions on how to apply the material to everyday situations.

  • There’s really no words to describe the tutor. The best presenter I’ve come across. The atmosphere created encourages everyone to get involved and makes the learning process an unforgettable one. I’ll definitely come back for other courses.
