Who is the Course aimed at

Anyone with active responsibility for delivering project success, either as project manager, key team member or in a governance role. This course has replaced the previous one day courses on this subject. The new two-day format ensures that delegates gain an in-depth introduction to the subject together with the opportunity to practice new skills.

Trainer

The course will be delivered by Pearce Learning and Development, either by Peter Pearce the owner of the company, or one of his associates. Peter’s company has been delivering training to the STC since its inception and also delivers training to a wide variety of public and private sector clients across London and the South East.

Personal feedback is that courses are delivered with great energy and enthusiasm underpinned by huge subject expertise. Peter is keen to emphasise he likes attendees to be active participants, so you won’t encounter dozens of slides or be asked to sit and listen all day. You’re much more likely to be involved in a discussion or a group exercise.
