"Not everything relates to what I do everyday but maybe useful outside work, on the other hand definitely a lot of information that that I can use for work. Thumbs up for this course!!!"
"Really enjoyed the course, very relevant and relatable with useful information provided."
-National Credit Management Limited (NCML)
"I was very impressed with Gina's presentation. She was very engaging in her delivery of the training material and definitely kept my attention throughout the course of the day. She was also excellent in tailoring the course information to everyone's particular duties within the Company and listening to what all the participants had to contribute."
-National Credit Management Limited (NCML)
"Our trainer, James built rapport with our group very quickly and determined our individual needs. He tailored the day's delivery to suit all our individual needs and even covered topics not included in our course manual. James is very knowledgable on his topic and often related the contents to his personal experiences, which aided my learning process. James delivered an energetic presentation, which made the day fun and enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the Goal Setting and Time Management topics as both these areas will improve not only my outcomes at work, but also my personal goals and ambitions. I feel motivated to tackle a very Urgent and Important personal task now. I have also learnt that I already possess many supervisory skills, but I now have the information to start practicing other skills I need to gain the confidence to successfully supervise a team. Thank you James, I really enjoyed the jam-packed day and will keep an eye out for your next Cultural Intelligence workshop. My favourite tip of the day: EAT THE FROG!"
-Tropical Medical Training
"I found Jill a great presenter and she kept us interested even after the lunch break which I know is usually a down time for most participants.

The small group worked really well as everyone was encouraged to be involved and share experiences and focus on ways to combat there difficulties and advise successes in the work place. The lunches and coffee facility provided was great. The course material assisted with identifying key focus area which will make me more efficient but also reassured me in areas to which I'm working well in.

I've recently been promoted from within the company and it hasn't been communicated effectively, this training made me realise that I need to get clarification exactly about what my role was so that I understood exactly what my supervision requirements needed to be. I found the course extremely helpful in being able to have that conversation as I knew nothing about supervising but am confident now to supervise my team. The trainer was great as she kept using our actual roles as examples which helped us relate to it and the class size was great. With only a few people we were able to ask questions and expand on examples. the lunch provided was great too!"

The course also gave an insight to my default supervisor style when in a pressure/stressful situation so I now know to be a bit more conscientious of this when interacting with staff."
-Department Of Communities
"All information was relevant . I found David to be very engaging and his delivery of information suited my learning. Would definitely like to go further in my training with David as my advisor/ teacher."

-Vincents Chartered Accountants
"I can honestly say it's the best course I have ever attended. The reasoning why is because Joseph made the course a great learning environment, whereby he took the time to answer our questions and made us understand the materials. His knowledge and examples taught me to understanding different angles to leadership. Joseph changed the way I need to rewire my brain to understand the different ways of being a Leader. Thank you Joseph."

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.
We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request 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.
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 dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
