    Rob was a delight to learn from. His knowledge of and passion for Project Management was obvious, and it is always a pleasure to learn from someone who loves what they are teaching. My only disappointment was in the food provided. I asked and was told that you were able to accommodate my celiac disease with gluten free foods, and while the first day was excellent, the second day I was served reheated leftovers, and on the third day there was no gluten free substitute for the pasta. I would have preferred to have been told to plan for my own lunch and snacks when I initially asked.

    I really enjoyed my time at CMC. My experience was exactly what I had hoped for: organized, structured, and efficient.

    Material was relevant and well delivered. Peter did an excellent job covering the materials in a way that kept all participants engaged and excited to learn. I was very happy to see the CMC kept the course running with only 3 participants. This required much more hands on facilitation of the material and Peter did an excellent job delivering the material in a way that we could all relate back to our personal work experiences. The small group time was greatly appreciated and Peter's insights were very valuable. The group activities and discussions made learning the course material much more enjoyable than standard classroom style. I would certainly attend another course facilitated by Peter. Great experience overall, valuable information.

    I was impressed by the course content and materials. I am sure I will look back on them in the future and, especially, will use the several templates provided. John Glennie was an engaging, knowledgeable course facilitator. His professional experience as a project manager and insights into the field were invaluable. I would highly recommend this course to colleagues. John Glennie was an excellent facilitator who successfully made the course content engaging and relevant to our audience. The course materials are great and ones that I can see myself referring back time and again. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to my colleagues.

    I really enjoyed the course. I liked the location and set-up. Didn't take long for John to make us feel comfortable. His style and presentation was great. After the 3-days we were all like a family. John is a wonderful, knowledgeable and clear speaker. I would not hesitate to attend another course by him. Thank you John. Again I have nothing but praise for John. A great speaker and made us feel relaxed.
