In this unique, engaging and practical workshop you’ll learn how resource management can positively transform internal operations and improve profit margins.

If you want to add 10% to your bottom line, improve project health, drive staff retention, align your recruitment and training plans to your business pipeline then this workshop is highly relevant for you.

Resource Management is a unique discipline, but is often misunderstood, undervalued and treated as little, or nothing, more than human tetris. Our workshop focuses on how resource management is a strategic role crucial to the overall operations and health of a business.

You’ll learn from real life case studies from our trainer’s extensive experience and you’ll have the chance to discuss your own take on these challenges. You’ll leave with the knowledge, commercial awareness, skills and confidence to practise strategic resource management that WILL add value.

  • How to manage the expectations of those more senior to you – managing from the middle.
  • Tools and top tips to help you plan, evaluate and monitor resources in your business leading to continuous improvements.


  • Operations directors who want to improve overall delivery and operational efficiency.
  • Finance directors looking to improve and protect profit margins and gain visibility of billing, cash flow and income recognition.

Resource Management Trainer

As a leading resource management consultant and trainer, Jo helps her clients get the most from their Resource Management function by focusing on their wider business goals. Transformation is at the heart of her expertise, particularly focusing on improvements in efficiency and culture.

Resource Management, finance, new business development, project management, recruitment and HR all fall within the scope of Jo’s consultancy expertise.

Jo has an authentic voice of experience. All of Jo’s content and guidance was relevant and relatable and easy to digest whilst also being comprehensive.
