"Leigh adapted the course to suit the demographics of the people he was addressing. He made what I would consider a dry and mundane topic, very pleasurable, considering our circumstances... Some very helpful hints and direction were gained by all who attended. Well done Leigh!"

Creating a Portfolio
When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.

At the completion of training participants are encouraged to create an action plan, and invite an accountability buddy via their Orgmenta App.
In your Training Management Centre you have transparency to the action plans so you can see what people are going to do differently.
Our systems and people make it easy to identify how you’ll be able to measure impacts,
and then report on the success in the weeks or months after training.
It’s surprisingly easy to make it so that your system can automatically be up to date with all the training record details you need.
