    "If you are struggling to get your self organised in your job then this course is what you need. Being new to the shire I had been easily engulfed by the way that things had always been run and organising daily tasks with future tasks was proving stressful and not productive. I left this course with goals and had been able to identify where I could change for the better. I would do it again just for the inspiration it has given me to implement change to my day and the way I work as an individual."

    In order to improve and maintain productivity in the Queensland Public Service, participation in this type of general time management course should be a compulsory requirement of employment for employees at all levels. Additional productivity benefits would be achieved by mandating follow up courses specifically designed to meet the needs/work patterns of different State government departments. Thanks."

    I loved the instant chat feature on your website. Chris was a great help and gave us a prompt delivery of quotes and other information about the courses that pd training offer. Pd training was able to cater specifically to our needs and were flexible with the delivery style of our course. Overall, I am very impressed at the professionalism we encountered. We will definitely be considering pd training again for our future 'in house' training needs.

    University of Melbourne logo
    Siobhan was a fantastic/engaging speaker. I was a bit skeptical when I found out that the training was for a whole day.... I thought " what is she going to tell me for one full day.... it will be a waste of my day..." But 4.30 came and I was still hanging for more information.

    Metcash logo
    Best Metcash course I've EVER done in my 10 years with the company - should have made time to do it many years ago. The trainer was fantastic - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional & light-hearted - the time flew (which it rarely does in training sessions). The course was well-paced, topical & very applicable to the workplace & private time alike. I will make time to actually read the manual cover to cover. Thank you!

    LivingWell Media Pty Ltd logo
    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.

    The training was conducted in a very professional manner. The trainer makes it a point to interact and get the participants involved. It wasn't a one way lecture but interactive.

    Hillscorp Pty Ltd logo
    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.

    -Hillscorp Pty Ltd

    Honda MPE logo
    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.

    The presenter was excellent. Her attention to each participants' aims of the workshop were attended to very well.
