What Our Clients are saying about our GTD Projects and Priorities Workshop
With lots of breakout sessions and interactive half-day sessions, I must agree. It was a great way to learn.
The pace, materials, and content were excellent. We focused on GTD project management and focus areas. Komal had lots of real-world experience and examples – and having interaction with others in the class helped to see and hear how others used GTD in their work and life.
I now integrated what I learned in this GTD advanced course to my existing planning processes. It has also allowed me to review and refine my GTD fundamentals.
