The course gives essential and very useful insight into remote leadership and project management skills and broadens the understanding of the subject. It provides opportunities to connect to other people outside your own organisation and learn from their experience. The tutors and speakers are very engaged, and I can only highly recommend participation! - Stephan Bueck, PayPal

Earlier this year my entire team went remote overnight. I had no experience of working remotely, let alone leading and supporting a team remotely. This course has provided me with a number of sensible, useable and proven techniques to keep the work of my unit progressing. It has also introduced me to unfamiliar project management methodologies and tools that are certain to add value to the work of my team- Jake Ryan, Department of Rural and Community Development
