Our experienced trainers have studied and worked in their respective fields in the EU, U.S., and worldwide for a minimum of 20 years before joining PMW. Furthermore, their experience covers the gamut from banking to business/finance to the architectural-engineering-construction (AEC) field to manufacturing and production and more. Their expertise affords them the ability to contour the workshops to their audience, explain the material in the participants’ industry language, and provide the participants tools they can use in their day-to-day jobs.
At PM Workshops, we work to develop engaging training that meets client needs and ensures participant engagement. Our instructors are industry leaders with a passion for what they do. They can pull from their own professional histories to offer real-world examples to illustrate their topics further.
Our goal is to create a training environment that encourages participation, develops hard and soft managerial skills, and provides a voice to every participant—a place for everyone to grow and thrive.
Your teams remain focused, engaged, and motivated.
