Free Agile Training Opportunity in Sunderland

Last week I attended the Digital Skills Summit in the North East – where businesses and training organisations were discussing the need to attract people into the Tech sector. Whilst much of the discussion as around expanding the entry level opportunities there was also an interesting discussion about both retaining existing staff and also attracting them from locations outwith the NE (the London returners).

As a locally based skills provider – with a specialism in all things agile and project management – I am current able to offer fully funded places to North East based SME companies on a one day Agile Introduction course which is running in Sunderland.

Funded agile training in action

If your company is based in Northumberland, Newcastle, Sunderland, Gateshead, County Durham to name a few – then please get in touch to book your FREE place for a day’s professional development. If you’re based further afield then don’t be shy – get in touch and we’ll see what we can offer you too.

Have a look at some of the feedback from this course previously – just think. This could be you getting the opportunity for a day’s professional development that your company doesn’t have to pay for!

Jude Paterson
Director & Agile trainer at IT-Howzat, Project Management Training & Consultancy.
Sharing my experiences from working in the UK and internationally, I have founded and run a Project Management Consultancy and Training company. Working with clients to help them deliver with agility across their Portfolio of projects. As an accredited Agile Project Management trainer, I can also deliver courses that enable you to gain a recognised Project Management qualification.

Its important to realise that people skills are just as important as the traditional project process skills. My shorter workshops, or coaching can focus on key mindsets and behaviours to provide approaches to help you deliver value to your organisation.

My training expands your skills, making you a more effective part of a project team, whither you are a business sponsor, a project manager, a business visionary or a team member to name a few. Whatever your role we can help expand your skills.

My career provides a wealth of experience in Portfolio, Programme and Project Management (P3M) both in the UK and overseas bringing experience to organisations from both a public and private sector perspective gained over the last 23 years. My strong P3M skills using tailored MSP, Prince2 and Agile methodologies have been utilised in a variety of industries including healthcare, intelligent transport systems, rail, banking, local authority and education. I am also an effective translator of business needs into transformation roadmaps. These experiences mean our training is supported with real life experience and stories.

Outside of work I enjoy travel, and have used my project and risk management skills to help me travel in many remote locations across the African continent. So if you’re more interested in an inspirational speaker, then these experiences can be used to engage with your audience.
