It all seemed so simple…
What an intense week! After a really bumpy start for me getting the dates mixed up etc and missing the first few hours in the morning on the first day I was so stressed. I hadn’t completed the pre-course reading properly but Greg really made an effort to give me a bit of extra help. I couldn’t believe after reading the book and it all seeming way above me that after the first two days in the classroom it all seemed so simple. I really enjoyed the training and have really got serious value from it already. Thanks again to the whole Smart PM team.

Genuinely the first course that I have been on that I have not only enjoyed but also found great value in for applying to my real life projects. Project management courses are typically boring but this was very different. I can’t recommend it enough!
Sonja J, December 2015
Thanks Greg for your expert tuition. Without it I would not have had a chance of getting through PRINCE2. Your patience and dedication to the group was admirable and I have already recommended that a few more of our project management team attend your course. It was a pleasure dealing with everybody at Smart PM and you should be very proud of the organisation you have created!

Professional and efficient!
Having had my course cancelled twice by another training company I was very dubious about investing again however on this occasion I made exactly the right choice. Everybody at Smart PM was professional and efficient right from the start and the quality of training I received was simply brilliant. Greg is entertaining and engaging and he genuinely knows his stuff backwards… down to the page numbers!

You guys are amazing!
I was very nervous about attending the course after receiving the pre-course pack but I must say that within the first 20 minutes it was clear that passing PRINCE2 was more than achievable. The trainer put everybody at ease, was extremely professional and knowledgable and took us through the material in a clear and structured manner. I passed the Foundation exam easily and felt very confident that I passed the Practitioner after the exam. Thanks again for all the help you guys are amazing.

Thank-you so much for the incredible training experience last week. Smart PM has delivered beyond my expectations and I will not hesitate to recommend both you and the company to my friends and colleagues. Very well organised training with a great trainer!

We need people like you!
I would like to officially thank you for a great week of PRINCE2 training. I have attended a few training sessions but I have to say it was the first time I have attended such a life changing course. For somebody who was wondering if PM was for me I feel I have learned so much and that you have provided me wonderful tools. The facilitator was knowledgeable, experienced, patient and so willing to share the knowledge. In summary I was more than impressed! May you continue to impart this knowledge to the entire PM community in SA. We need people like you!

Tense but awesome!
I would like to thank you for a tense but awesome week doing the PRINCE2 course. I must say that it would definitely make a difference in my life and career. Everything was done professionally and I would definitely recommend PRINCE2 and more so SMART PM to anyone that would like to pursue a career in project management.
Ashley S, July 2015
Never confused or dumbstruck!
The course was run at an extremely professional level which made it easy for me as the trainee to have confidence in all training aspects and grasp concepts easily. The trainers approach made absorbing and learning information an enjoyable experience even with my unbearable cold and throat infection. I never felt confused or dumbstruck as most trainers make the trainees feel. I look forward to engaging with Smart PM for future training requirements for both myself and my staff and I will certainly recommend Smart PM to all my clients.
Adiel R, April 2015
Insightful and very well delivered
Thanks for a really great week on the PRINCE2 course. I found the training both insightful and very well delivered. I was concerned initially having done the reading that the course would be quite dry and clinical however I was very pleased that it was refreshingly different to any other course I have been on before. 10 out of 10!
Luke M, February 2015
Thank-you so much…
All I can say to the whole team at Smart PM is thank-you so much for getting me through the course. I have been on so many courses before and this was honestly the first one I have enjoyed so much and will remember. The training was brilliant and I can see PRINCE2 in 3D just like you promised!
Antionette D, January 2015
An awesome journey…
Thank you Smart PM for an awesome journey in 5 days through the PRINCE2 handbook. Thanks for making it interesting, for knowing your material and delivering it with passion and effectiveness. I highly recommend Smart PM for anyone who wants to pass the Foundation and Practitioner exams first time around.
Jose S, November 2014
Thanks to everybody at Smart PM for the service which was just superb. A really great experience right through from quotation to the actual course. It really is such a relief when you are investing your own hard earned money to find they you have made such a good choice.
Mandy L, September 2014
Thank-you, thank-you thank-you.
All I can say to Greg and the team at Smart PM is Thank-You Thank-You Thank-You! I had an opportunity which relied on me passing this exam and you guys really put your backs into making sure I passed and more importantly making sure I could go away from the course and immediately make a meaningful difference with the PRINCE2 principles you taught. I have attended so many training courses and this one has been the best by such a long way!
Alex D, August 2014
Before attending the Smart PM PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course, I had been reading and searching the internet for information form months. I watched dozens of videos, tutorials and downloaded more “free” training material that I can remember. None of it made any sense until I spent a week in the classroom with Greg at Smart PM. He makes is seem so simple and keeps you entertained and engaged with his profound knowledge of the subject. Quite rare to find a facilitator who can answer anything you throw at them!
Paul C, August 2014
A brilliant week.
Just a quick thanks for a really brilliant week with you guys on the course. It was so much better than I thought it would be even through it is seriously intense. It was great to network and learn at the same time and I just can’t tell you how fantastic it was. I’m going to sleep for the rest of the week-end!
Stephanie C, July 2014
Money well spent!
Genuinely the best money I have spent on myself in the last few years. The training is brilliant, the course admin was smooth. My training materials arrived promptly so that I could prepare for the course on time. I am really excited to put the PRINCE2 method into practice in both my professional and private lives!
Precious M, April 2014
Having just managed my first stage boundary I cannot express the confidence I gained in having to tackle all of the project management activities we deal with since attending the course last month. I really can see the method in 3D! Thanks again for an excellent and well run course I have just received my certificate!
Justin B, April 2014
Outstanding professional service.
I would like to congratulate and sincerely thank you for an outstanding professional service that I received from Smart PM. The course was so entertaining and informative that I keep on looking for something to do again with you guys! Greg was superb and I passed. Thank you very much!
Tebogo S, March 2014
Excellence and passion
Greg delivers PRINCE2 training with excellence and passion. Without a doubt, the best value for money investment made in my personal growth. Thanks Smart PM!
Lynton T, February 2014
I never expected to pass!
When I received the PRINCE2 manual from the Smart PM courier I read the first few chapters and began to panic! Even though I do have some experience I was worried about all the terminology which just made it seem so complicated. I was so nervous for the training course and I must say that Greg was amazing. He made it so easy to understand and was very helpful with explaining everything. I am now so motivated to bring these good practices to my own working environment. I really never expected to pass when I read the book first time and now I am certified thanks to Smart PM.
Vishnu P, January 2014
Efficient and effective
A huge thanks to everybody at Smart PM for being so efficient and effective throughout the whole process. From my original phone call through to the exams I have been provided with good service, sound advice and excellent training and will recommend Smart PM to all my friends and family.
Michelle S, December 2013
Smart PM delivered an excellent week of training that has allowed our Project Managers to immediately start adding value to our projects using the principles, methods, and processes which were superbly communicated. When looking for a training provider we were after more than ‘value-for-money’, we were after ‘real value’ and Smart PM delivered on every front and will hear from us again and again.
Alan R, August 2013
Professional from start to finish, from registration, course work, training right through to the exams. It really gave you the confidence to pass!
Phil K, July 2013
Engaging and entertaining.
When I first decided to do PRINCE2, I shopped around. I compared not only price but also pass-rate, what I got for the money and feedback from others. Choosing Smart PM was the best move I could have made. Greg was extremely knowledgeable and I found the course highly engaging and even entertaining. A course is not just about the subject but also how it is presented and he has this down to a fine art! I am really grateful for all Smart PM’s efforts.
Darren B, June 2013
Thank-you Smart PM!
This is just a note to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the exceptional PRINCE2 training that you facilitated in April in Sandton. It was a very tough week I must admit but I enjoyed every day! The knowledge I received from the training surpassed my expectations and cannot match any kind of training I ever received in my career! I have been sharing the experience with my colleagues and peers and they can’t wait to register. I’m already applying PRINCE2 at work although even though my organization does not use PRINCE2 methods, I have customized it to the CSI projects that I manage.
Patience K, April 2013, Johannesburg
Very well done!
Having attended literally dozens of training events and courses over the past few years I can honestly say that from initial enquiry with Smart PM with regards to their PRINCE2 courses, all the way through to delivery of the training and after, everything has been spot on. I am feeling the value of the training already and can’t wait to get the rest of our project team through the course.
Francois L, April 2013, Johannesburg
Suddenly it seemed clear…
Having initially purchased a training CD and tried to learn the PRINCE2 method myself, I couldn’t make head or tail of it. I approached Smart PM for help. It made a huge difference to hear how the theory actually works in the real world and after being in the classroom I found it easy to relate the theory to my own experience and current work situation. With the help of the excellent facilitator, all the information from the CD which didnt really make sense to me suddenly became clear. I would highly recommend attending a Smart PM PRINCE2 classroom course for anybody trying to get this certification.
Sarah S, March 2013, Durban
One happy project coordinator!
My week spent with Greg in the classroom has been, thus far, the best experience I have had learning about the principles of project management. Greg has been able to put the principles and themes into practical explanations and examples, with uncomplicated learning. I walked out of the classroom and have been able to apply my learning into my current position, with some “tailoring” needed – after all it is PRINCE2! Thank you Greg and Smart PM for making the week an enjoyable learning experience and for the confidence to tackle future projects…. and a pass on the exams!
Bronwyn N, 25th February 2013, Johannesburg
Revealed the deeper insights…
Smart PM’s PRINCE2 program is well structured and relevant. I found the style of delivery to be excellent, interactive and entertaining and the exam techniques workshop was particularly helpful. For me, the course helped to reveal deeper insights into project management. Our organization has just adopted and introduced the PRINCE2 method as the main project management method. Thanks to Smart PM.
Amon D, 25th January 2013, Johannesburg
Marriage made in heaven!
My first option when deciding to study PRINCE2 was to go the self study route. Fortunately I did not use that option. I realised soon after the course started that I would not have passed the exams if I went for that option. Choosing Smart PM was the best choice I made. Greg made me fall in love with PRINCE2 on the very first day of the course and by the last day, the marriage between me and PRINCE2 was sealed!
Marcellin D, 29th January 2013, Johannesburg
Professional and efficient
The course was fantastic and a great way to consolidate all the knowledge and experience gained over the past few years. It was a pleasure to deal with SmartPM and I found Greg extremely professional and efficient. He managed to make a very theoretical course relevant, practical and fun to be on.
Grant H, 11th December 2012, Cape Town
Putting it in perspective…
After almost 25 years in IT management roles I thought I knew most of what there was to know about managing IT projects. Well PRINCE2 was a great way to round off my knowledge and put things in perspective. Greg at SmartPM is one the best course presenters I have encountered. He squeezed all the right material and exam techniques into the 5 day course with such skill that the exams seemed easy. For anyone who wants a PRINCE2 certification and to learn about a great method of project management, I would recommend using SmartPM without hesitation.
Doug R, 11th December 2012, Cape Town
The PRINCE2 course I attended with Smart PM provided me with everything I needed to get a solid understanding of the method and most importantly to achieve an excellent result in the Practitioner exam. The interactive exam techniques workshop and the training was excellent, concise and surprisingly entertaining! Highly recommended. Thanks Smart PM!
Farouk E, 16th November 2012, Durban
Expert advice and outstanding knowledge coupled with Greg’s professional approach, helped me take my project management career to the next level.
Juan Paul A, 2nd November 2012, Durban
I can feel the benefits already.
It has only been a few days since I returned from the PRINCE2 training program offered by Smart PM and already I can see and feel the benefits of attending the program. The program itself is well balanced and its alignment to the practical work environment is remarkable. The pre-reading material and guide are of great help and the instructor is very knowledgeable on the subject matter and is capable of actually bringing it to life which enables one to directly link the subject matter to real life or work situations. The practice sessions for the exams are well structured, thorough and excellent preparation for the exam. I really can’t wait to apply and integrate my learning’s from this program to the projects environment within my organisation.
Francis D, 12th October 2012, Johannesburg
A perfect choice!
My experience with Smart PM, right from enquiring about the course through to completing the exams was great. Greg’s advice was exceptionally helpful and his knowledge of PRINCE2 is extensive. He brings the theory to life with his experiences and examples and I thoroughly enjoyed his approach and style. I would highly recommend Smart PM if you are looking to do the PRINCE2 course.
Jacqui R, 7th September 2012, Johannesburg
5 Stars *****!
I am very glad that I chose Smart PM to attain my PRINCE2 certification. My initial engagement with Greg opened up a personal dialogue where Greg provided professional guidance for me to get ready in a relatively short time frame. The pre-course activities and logistics were extremely well coordinated as was the actual course itself. Having initially read the manual I expected the course to be a little intimidating but it was so well delivered and explained that it became second nature in no time! His knowledge of PRINCE2 framework and training methodology is simply astounding. I have not only successfully passed my exams but also feel ready to adopt PRINCE2 principles, themes and processes in the way I manage projects going forward which makes this effort worthwhile for me.
Atilla K, 3rd August 2012, Cape Town
A really great course!
This was great training indeed! Greg was very clear and understandable and he managed to keep us all interested, adapted very well to our needs and really knows his stuff.. Highly recommended.
Mcebo S, 27th July 2012, Johannesburg
WOW! Smooth, efficient and professional.
I received my pre-course materials the day after booking the course. The course covered a vast amount of material at a fast pace but that didn’t stop Greg from ensuring that all delegates were up to speed before moving on. All in all, a fantastic course to attend and Greg is an exceptional facilitator who constantly incorporates examples from his experience to bring the concepts to life
Adel V, 19th July 2012, Durban
A great course!
Fast-paced, thoroughly engrossing course, I learnt so much and I now feel I have that edge that was missing. Thank you Smart PM!
Kim F, 9th July 2012, Cape Town
Incredibly well delivered!
Smart PM was undeniably the correct choice for me in terms of my requirements to gain my PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner certification. The course was fast paced, but incredibly well delivered and invaluable in enabling me to pass the exams. I would highly recommend both Smart PM and Greg’s intense interactive training course as your best chance at success in gaining your PRINCE2 qualification.
Martine L, 29th June 2012, Cape Town
Great experience with Smart PM!
Having previously tried to pass PRINCE2 using an on-line training company without any luck I decided to invest in the training course offered by Smart PM. My trainer was Greg and he was able to give such meaning to the material which was what I was missing with the e-learning. Greg gave me insight and understanding into both PRINCE2 and project management as a main stream management discipline through his experience, examples and analogies. I am now a qualified PRINCE2 Practitioner thanks to Greg and Smart PM!
