    I attended Project Management for Wildlife Conservation Training Workshop organised by WildTeam UK in October 2019 in Oxfordshire. It was a great experience and I learned a lot about project management which I am currently using at my work place. I highly recommend this training for other conservation professionals. I am sure that they will find it beneficial too.

    I attended this course in Cambridge in January 2018 and found it extremely informative and progressive. As a mature student who has worked in the “Conservation” world for years … this opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and planning my work. The team were great and very helpful indeed. A thoroughly enjoyable course and something I would recommend to budding Project Managers worldwide.

    I completed this course online in March this year. The tutors are very approachable, open to communication and informative. As someone who is used to being thrown in the deep end and sink or swim, this course now allows me to have a way more structured approach to project management. It is a great way of breaking down all the different stages, keeping everyone informed and accountable. Totally recommend.

    Just completed the online course in August 2020. I really enjoyed the workshop – very informative and will be useful as I move forward into my future career (hopefully!) in project management! Would also be useful for someone starting out on their PhD, as many of the processes are highly relevant and I wish I’d known about them when I started my PhD.
