I attended an excellent training course by ProductFocus last week. Well structured content, solid theory with practical tools and tips to take away. Makes a massive difference when the presenters are passionate about their subject. Highly recommended for product managers of all abilities and experience. Thank you to Ian Lunn for leading the course.

The tools, templates and checklists provided are super useful. I love the fact that they’re changeable so I can easily adjust them to my company’s way of working.

We recently used Product Focus to deliver some excellent bespoke training to our Product and Marketing team and the feedback was really great – thank you!

Anyone who would benefit from understanding the role of product management should attend this course. One of the best training courses I have done, the pace was just right, it was very interesting and engaging. Never boring.

Excellent course, wish I'd done this a year ago when I started as a PM. It would’ve changed my view on leaving product management, but decision already made!
Cheryl Paterson - Product Manager, Allocate Software
A great course delivered by a dynamic and knowledgeable expert with real world industry experience. I believe regardless of their experience level anyone would learn something new. Best investment I have made for my team and business this year.

Please do everything you can to leave your day jobs at the door and fully engage in this course. I did it in September and can honestly say it is the most useful training I’ve done in my career.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned so much more than I expected! I've recommended you to a number of colleagues. The templates on the USB stick are proving extremely useful.

The course was superb and we’ve had excellent feedback from the team. Everyone learned – regardless of their history, experience or accountability level in the team.
