Achieving Better Time Management While Working from Home - 3hours Reviews:

"Easily the best PD I have done in a very long time.  Learnt a lot and have started some of the ideas and suggestions."


"Content was delivered in a way i now feel confident to do a PD with the rest of my office colleagues and pass the information on. Highly recommended!"

"It was a really great session. Sometimes PD's can seem to drag on and most participants are keen to get away as early as possible. I noticed it was 4:15pm and most people even though the finish time was 4pm were still keen to chat and ask questions. The energy levels were kept high and I found the day moved quickly, but in a way that information was easy to retain.I have already implemented 2 of the practises - sacred time or a meeting with myself and the use of body language to discourage "chatters" with out offending. I have already recommended this to the Principal and would go to another pd with this trainer."

"Breaking allocated tasks in work quadrants...learning about "loading" .  Great session...was very timely:)"

"Easily the best PD I have done in a very long time.  Learnt a lot and have started some of the ideas and suggestions. Didn't want the day to end - which is rather unusual."

"I thought the training was fantastic! Jo was a great teacher, and really got everyone involved with the learning process. I enjoyed the practical activities, as well as the insight that Jo provided on various aspects of time management. I liked the small class approach where we had the opportunity to discuss ideas and thoughts. I felt that my areas of need were given strong consideration. It was really nice to know that the other class members had similar issues... not just me lacking in certain skills! The location and facilities were good. It was convenient being located near the train station, and there were no distracting elements during the class."

"The mood and atmosphere of the course was enlightening and uplifting. I believe that a general discussion involving multiple teams allows for additional insights although a separate and shorter session with only your team/department to discuss processes and time management issues specific to your own team might be even more beneficial.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Time Management Skills training I attend 31/08/17. Derek was very knowledgeable and offered a lot of information which I found helpful in both my working and personal environments. I'm a procrastinator, I would make to do lists but prioritising the list was hard. Often jumping from task to task and at the end of the day not having ticked much of the lists. This has now all changed. I gained a number of skills and tips which have been invaluable to career and personal life. I have implemented many of the skills gained. As a result, I am able to better project manage our office relocation, I no longer procrastinate and I am able to work through prioritised to do list while completing task like never before. I completely enjoyed the course content from start to finish. I have attended many training courses and have also delivered them. But this was the best course I have undertaken and I found all of the content valuable. I remained engaged for the whole training and this is due to Derek's delivery of the course content. Thanks again Derek. 10/10 PD Training :)"

Best Metcash course I've EVER done in my 10 years with the company - should have made time to do it many years ago.

A big thank you to Kirsty for the training! I really enjoyed it and have learned some new skills I'm starting to put into practice, already making me feel less stressed and more able to effectively control my time. My desk is even starting to look neater already! Kirsty was also fantastic at handling the group and bringing the focus back to the work at hand in a very polite way when it came to people talking/getting off track - it was actually a non-intentionally provided skill simply because she was practicing it! She was also very professional and friendly with each of the different personalities in the class, giving every one the same attention and chance to be a part of the activities. A great day, a great set of skills and great people. Thank you. Jess.

Various tools and processes in the day certainly helped me clarify "big issue" decisions and goals for myself. Such clarity has the potential to make a huge positive difference to the next twenty years of my life, so that's no small outcome.

It was very good. In fact one of the best comments made by the trainer related to my personality type (being quite visual)and the importance for me in keeping my work environment clear of clutter and distractions. I have put this into practise not only at work but in my car and at home and have noticed improvements in the management of my work.

She was very personable and experienced on the subject matter as well as being amenable to dealing with our individual concerns. Overall an extremely invaluable and enjoyable day.

Undertaking this training session has been giving me the opportunity to advance my skills in preparation and planning areas, how to run the training session or to train more effectively. The information, the resources, the life experiences that the trainer has provided has exceeded my expectations. The topics, the discussions, activities and abet of games and the feedback are very helpful throughout. Because its a small group, which is preferable, I got more chances to ask questions to help me understand fully and supportive. Other two participants are also supportive, which I am comfortable to work with, I also leant a lot from their life experiences. At the end of the session, I am able to step out of my comfort zone, growth in my confidentiality and how to structure/plan a training session, its an absolute relevant and beneficial knowledge that I will use/assist for my workplace in future.

I found this course great in that I had it gave me a guideline and factors to consider when training people that I was not aware of. It also provided me with things that I should take into consideration when training others. This course has greatly benefited my future training methods. Anne was great.

Very informative. Highly beneficial.


Salvation Army logo
The presenter was excellent. Her attention to each participants' aims of the workshop were attended to very well. She directed the training to specific modules which were helpful to particular participants and skimmed over modules that were not as applicable to us. I appreciated her style of teaching and presenting and would recommend her as a trainer to other people.

Understanding, identifying and defining your long-term goals is the very first step when implementing an effective time management solution while working from home.  With the broader goal in the background, you can now set a series of medium and short-term goals that will effectively lead you to achieving the cherished long-term goals in your life.

In-House Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
