What people say
I now feel at least somewhat qualified to begin the mammoth undertaking of redesigning my company's website. Jonathan clearly and simply taught us the various approaches to project management, and I now have a greater understanding of the technical issues too.
Engaging, interesting and very informative - I can't wait to put what I've learned into practise!
I was hesitant that an all day course may be a little too much to handle but I was pleasantly surprised at how intimate, entertaining and insightful the whole day was. Our leader Jonathan was fab and extra considerations like snacks and drinks made my day.
Coming from a more traditional advertising background I've ventured into the digital world with experience of project management, but not much confidence or know-how in how to apply to this to a new digital landscape. This course has now given me both the knowledge and confidence that I was lacking.
I have been on a lot of day training courses with a fair amount of training companies and this course was honestly the best in terms of taking home actual practical, applicable knowledge and skills. It's changed the way I will approach any digital project or campaigns from now on.
International Compliance Training
Great course and a great tutor. Recommended!
The course clarified that my approach to web project management is sound but also gave me new strategies and techniques to improve my existing systems.
Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust
This is a great introduction to Web Project Management and I left feeling more confident to take on digital projects. Highly recommend!
This course covers all areas of Digital Project Management. Whether it is used as an introduction or a refresher/update course, it is well worth taking part in. I have come away with more knowledge than I ever had before and have found new techniques that I can also adapt to my offline projects.
A course I would highly recommend. It clearly explains different areas of web project management in a concise, human manner.
