Really great, effective training. I took a lot from it as I was really keen to further my PM skills. I particularly found delving into personality types and how to manage each very useful to tackle daily issues I come across. Thanks to Melissa

The session was really engaging and I genuinely now feel more equipped to use the content from the session as frameworks for my client’s brand ongoing.
Took so much from it, and have already implemented a suggested WOW in the team. Melissa was just brilliant!

Share Creative

The workshop gave me a clear sense of how the process should work and more importantly, a better idea of how to lead in my role. An understanding of how to read through situations and gather the important statistics such as risk before they become a problem. It was really useful to understand what you need to be looking out for, especially as being early on in your role, you can be overwhelmed by a lot of the information. It’s invaluable to be given a process to help you digest this in a productive way.
