Cathal Curtis Cathal Curtis -- “I worked for several years in the Software industry and in smaller companies proper project planning is missing. I consider this course as essential to anyone being promoted to Project Manager. I also consider this an essential precursor to a formal project management course. I also consider this course as essential training even for those to work under a project manager so that they understand how to read a project plan and understand what goes into producing a project plan. It is very evident that Padraig has a wealth of PM knowledge and experience”.
