How To Deliver Fun, Activity Based Training Reviews:

"Great delivery, lots of hands on and lots of involving staff. I got my staff to do stuff they don't like doing which was really good!"


"I found it very refreshing not to do another personality type course on leadership, but more about applying the leadership style to the staff member's developmental stage. Great delivery, lots of hands on and lots of involving staff. I got my staff to do stuff they don't like doing which was really good!"


"I found Pam to be a great Trainer/Facilitator, she was so informative and the experiences that she shared with us was so relevant to our daily job.  It was the best training workshop I have attended in a long time, so I'm really stoked to have attended."

An enjoyable course. It reinforced what I was doing well, identified where I could improve and showed me new things to try. Pat was great."

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


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 dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
