I’m passionate about sharing experience and that’s what my training workshops are about

Being involved in countless amount of projects and changes, while also working actively with leading professional organizations, I know the real challenges faced by leaders. That’s how I’m always on top of the latest developments in project, change and strategic management. And that’s exactly what I want to share with you during my training workshops, webinars and public talks.

Standard or tailored content

Even though I truly enjoy bespoke workshop design and delivery, some of my programs have proven to fit the needs of many organizations. I’ve perfected each of them over years based on feedback from participants, my growing experience, latest international standards, and recent trends in strategic, project and change management.

Onsite and online

Each of these project and change management training workshops can be delivered onsite or online. I’ve carefully designed every part of them for both forms of delivery, so regardless if we meet face-to-face or via your preferred videoconferencing platform, each workshop will be equally interactive, engaging and inspiring.

We work on your cases

My goal is to make sure that you know how to apply every single bit of knowledge to your own reality. That’s why we always work on real-life cases brought by participants. This way you can immediately check how to use every technique in practice and I can address your actual challenges. No questions are left unanswered.

We can focus on one project

Typically we work in sub-groups on 3-4 cases at the time, but most of the workshops below can focus only on one specific project, change or organization. Effectively it turns it into a great opportunity for your team and sponsors to work together and use it as part of the kick-off of your project, program, transformation or even strategy.
