This is the second time I've had Troy as a trainer. He is very engaging and personable whilst remaining on topic. In this session he used his own experience and passion for the topic (time management) which gave the information more merit. I found the Productivity List and goal setting tools most useful.
- Hendi from QK
I was very happy with the course. I came in not really knowing what to expect, as I was fairly confident with my "Time Management" skills, but this course identified some techniques that were interesting [and] accurate for identifying priorities. I came in with an open mind, and I left very satisfied and more confident. Everything covered in the course made sense, and gave me validation, that what I have been doing is on the right track, and what I need to do more of is "Discipline myself" in keeping to the time-frame of my working schedule.
- Meliame from Austral Asia Line Pte Ltd
Derrick was excellent, knowledgeable and engaging.
- Max from ACT Government (17 February 2022)
Great session, although it was short it was quite informative and provided many tips on identifying priorities, making lists and ways in which to deal/plan for interruptions. So much more that could be covered but given the time it was great. Highly recommend it to those who are feeling lost in their work environment. Michaela made great use of the flip chart to make points and interact with the group.

Our trainer incorporated our workplace within the training to show us how effective these changes would be.

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. Overall, the trainer is excellent. The venue is conducive to learning and the materials are sufficient for the topics covered.

Ann is a fantastic trainer. No boring bits - loads of great information. The course has reinforced what I know I should be doing with how I manage my time and it inspired me to get going in practise. A great course, very worthwhile and highly recommendable. Great facilitator!
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.
