The Productive EAWhat Our ClientsSay
Amanda’s passion for transferring her knowledge and supportive follow-up mentoring, led me towards embracing greater responsibilities within the organisation. From participating in one of her training sessions, I now feel empowered to take on a greater level of leadership within our business and support our director in a new way.Thank you, Amanda, for your patience and expertise in guiding me though the learning process.
Thanks very much again for this training. It was exactly what I needed. I am very much a systems person and have been struggling over the last year and a half or so to figure out something that captured absolutely everything and had a super simple, adaptable workflow (honestly, the number of apps I’ve run through trying to make something work is a little bit terrifying). I took to your framework like a fish to water, and having exactly what I knew I needed laid out for me was such a help. Next step—personalize.I appreciated the emphasis on the mindset shift as I am definitely guilty of stressing over the length of to-do lists and trying to get it done. It’s so relieving to know that everything’s noted and will be taken care of in due time.
