      Effective Resource Management.

      The pacing and structure of the workshop was fantastic – especially considering that it was online and some activities had to be translated into the virtual version. Jo held our attention throughout and was insightful and welcoming, establishing a warm camaraderie and an open atmosphere to ask questions.

      Project Management

      Prior to the training, Jo and Melissa set up a call to define a plan. The training itself was fantastic. Melissa was structured, to the point and inspired discussion about how the tools can be applied. The team was engaged and found the takeaways practical and applicable. I also recommend the MapsTell personality test as the results are very accurate.
