– Toby Dawson, Cancer Council NSW
Are you involved in projects or managing small projects?

Do you find yourself swamped by project-related tasks – on top of your everyday work?

If your job is like most, you may be surprised how much time you spend on projects.

Different, deadline-driven work that can sometimes be a major distraction to your main responsibilities.

Little wonder you’re struggling to stay on top of things.

Yet projects require an entirely different set of skills and tools, even a different mindset, to managing your day-to-day work.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to:
  • Take immediate control of your project work
  • Contribute to your team and your project
    in a more pro-active way
  • Be more assertive in managing your time

It will make a world of difference to your stress levels, your confidence and your project results.
