What have delegates said about Nikki-Dee’s coaching/training?

"I don’t think we’d be overstating it if we said that all of it was new to us. Whilst we may have been doing it in practice is was the awareness of the methodologies and how they feed into to the success of a project that was useful as well as ensuring we all formalised why and what we were doing"

"I learnt the importance of planning - spending dedicated time on 'project management' before and during delivery. The importance of the pre-planning stage in id'ing goals/ milestones and KPIs that will allow you to ensure the project is and remains on track."

"I enjoyed learning about PM processes and breaking these down into aspects which were both relatable and easy to understand"

"I'll now dedicate more time to planning and dedicated PM, not just 'doing'"

​"It was a great team-building exercise and the delivery was excellent. We would not hesitate in asking PM3 - Project Management for the Third Sector to work with us again, source events that you are facilitating or highly recommend them." 

"Through this workshop, I’ve learnt to create project plans which will be much more effective and thorough, hopefully bridging the current gap between planning and execution"

"It was a very helpful course, well delivered, with lots of experience evident.  The trainer set things out clearly so I can go away and make a good attempt at a plan that is workable."
