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!
Hanna Smith - HR Director, Madgex
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.
Conor Tweed - Product Analyst, Realex Payments
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.
Phil Hornby - Head of PM Platforms, Diagnostics & Services, Continental
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.
Will North - Product Management Director, Callcredit (Will attended a Public Course then arranged Private Training for his team)
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.
Andrew Sayle - Product Focus Certified Product Manager, Zen Internet
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.
Paresh Patel - Head of Product Management for Managed Mobility and Security, Vodafone Global Enterprise
Product Focus has delivered everything we were looking for from a partner and I am really pleased with the training feedback. We have valued enormously their advice, flexibility and professionalism.
Jennie Brown - International Learning & Development Director, CDK Global
6 months on - I think your product management course must have been the most valuable course of my career so far. I have used much of the material on the USB key and your analogy of being the CEO of the product really helps.
Ellie Ryan - Product Manager, Thomson Reuters
Overall very good and very useful. It helped me with the foundations, core and structure of my role and I look forward to getting back into the office to use my new skills.
Gavin Murphy - Product Manager, KCOM
