Appreciate the way Ian ensured that the things I wanted to learn were covered and in going through the content took time to reiterate and use personal experience for me to learn.

I found the course to be thoroughly enjoyable and educational...I loved it and can't wait to put it into action. I do just wish it was longer: I enjoyed it enough to want stay and learn more for a few extra days.

I enjoyed the course and found it very useful and I aim to use it in both a professional and personal level. Thanks again Tammy was very good with her delivery and did an excellent job of keeping the group on track whilst at the same time giving everyone a fair time to ask questions. Thank you Tammy I would say the only thing negative is that everyone in the business may not get to do the course as it is invaluable, especially at this time of change.

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.
