Great course yesterday and can’t give enough amazing feedback for John. I’ve never had a teacher hold attention of a class from start to finish, but yesterday he did this.
Alan delivered the training in an easy to understand and pleasant manner which was broken down into manageable chunks with an appropriate number of breaks to give folk time away from their laptops and screens. It is never easy to do 2 days of training on a fairly in-depth subject involving Software even in a classroom environment and remaining focused and engaged so doing it remotely adds another level of complexity, but I have to say that personally this was one of the best Training Events that I have attended for some years. I have gained so much knowledge of MS Project and it will certainly make my job easier going forward.
A large part of what I gained has to be credited to Alan’s manner and delivery and I should be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to him.
Also, the support, together with joining instructions & training literature etc from Nexus Human has been excellent – thank you for that. I intend feeding that back to our People and ICT Teams too

Excellent interaction and answered all of my questions. Looking forward to being able to apply some of the tips and features learned today which hopefully should have real impact on some of the more time consuming tasks currently encountered.
