"I gained a much better understanding of business planning concepts. It is always a little difficult to translate that into public sector application, however the course gave me a good foundation for future learnings/experiences."

-Department of Transport and Main Roads


"I thought it was a great day and the content was completely relevant! From a marketing perspective, it would have been handy to work with actual Bond or HSM scenarios to assist me a bit more in my way of thinking and understanding the content but none the less it was great to get the brain thinking."

"Most useful: The tools and SP process laid out well. Step by step. All useful activities. Great interaction."

"Great workshop! The final session after afternoon tea felt a bit fast paced, but I appreciate the time constraints on trying to accomodate all of the topics. Definitely helpful & I would recommend to colleagues!"

-Bond University


"Peter, our presenter came over very well to my liking, and as I discussed with him I achieved all my pre-course activity. as quoted in q4, Peter was great, and managed to get us all to open up and guide us through our thoughts and ideas."

      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.
