No doubt you’ve heard of the TheLazyProjectManager.com aka Peter Taylor (PMO practitioner, speaker, blogger and author). Peter and I met earlier this year in Poland as we were both speaking at a conference.

A Meeting of Project Management Minds on a Podcast

It was pretty clear from the start that we both share a love of all things PMO and progressing the Project Management industry (it turns out that we both have pretty similar hand gestures when presenting too)… so when Peter invited me to talk about CourseConductor.com on his popular podcast, I knew it would be good fun.

You can listen to the podcast on iTunes from here (dated 22nd July), it’s only about 25 minutes long so a perfect commute listen, and you can subscribe to Peter’s blog here and get notified when he publishes his next one.

Talking About the Importance of Trusted Customer Reviews in Project Management Training Courses

During the podcast we discussed a few talking points including:

  • Why I started CourseConductor.com: The fact that CourseConductor.com was born out of my own frustration of not being able to find the best courses for Management of Portfolios (the book I co-authored).
  • Course reviews help everyone: How writing a review about your project management training course helps your own personal brand, helps your fellow project management professionals, helps the training provider quantify their quality and finally, because of our sustainability focus – every course review helps contribute to a better world too (click here to read more about sustainability).
  • Training provider quality: Why the best project management training providers in the world are embracing CourseConductor.com and using their customer’s reviews to prove how good they are publicly.
  • Every certified project management training provider is now on CourseConductor.com: Yes thats correct, every training provider certified by PMI and AXELOS is now listed on CourseConductor.com. This means training providers can claim their profile and anyone that has been on a project management training course within the last 5 years can now write a review of their training experience.

Hope you enjoy the podcast.

Best,

Craig
