Why book this course?

Whether you're conducting projects in-house or for clients, good organisation is key. A mismanaged project can take longer than it needs to, consuming resources and generating discontent. Internally, this can cause paralysis and inhibit your growth; externally, it can affect your reputation and prevent you from making sales. 

This interactive one-day course will give you an excellent grounding in project management, whatever their size and scope. It is packed with practical tools and essential resources to help you deliver your projects on time, to budget and as specified - and to build a reputation for steadfast efficiency.

Associate Trainer

Louise Pearce

What is my experience?

I’ve worked extensively across both the Private and Public sectors. My experience has given me valuable insight into different strategic and operational approaches, business models and attitudes to both training and coaching which I have used to be able to adapt to different environments and requirements of organisations. My lifelong interest in developing people, led to a qualification in executive coaching and mentoring and this, coupled with my own ‘hands-on’ experience in the business world has allowed me to work with a whole range of organisations to develop both their individuals, teams and businesses to improve and adapt to change and challenges.

 

What is my area of expertise?

As a trainer and coach, I work with both individuals and groups of people on areas to develop themselves and their businesses qualitatively.  Process and performance management, managing change and remote leadership are key areas of expertise.  All these are linked by the use of both practical and psychological models, for delegates to take back and use in their workplace to ensure that the investment in training really benefits them and their business going forward.

 

Why I love inspiring others?

I believe that anyone, with a little support, can be the very best version of themselves that they want to be.  The blend of training and coaching gives me the amazing opportunity to witness people developing and growing into that best version of themselves – and there is no greater ‘buzz’ than that.
