PRIMAVERA SKILLS:

Primavera Skills...

Planning Planet has over HALF A MILLION HITS a year on PRIMAVERA information.  

As we mentioned in an earlier post we would like to run a selected directory of PRIMAVERA partners for the benefit of the practitioners.  We have received some great requests / offers of becoming involved and we are sending this out to see who else may be interested (location-wise).

We will make this very attractive to those that wish to ADVERTISE their PRIMAVERA SKILLS or SERVICES to our global members.

Contact PPAdmin@planningplanet.com for more information - literally, this is a global opportunity to find new clients plus an opportunity for the practitioners to find new help!

GUILD NEWS:

We informed you of a classroom training course we are holding with our training partner Global Knowledge, Unhappily, we have been stung by the usual 'we're very busy - taking practitioners away from projects is difficult' so in a nutshell in the last two weeks of March our 3 DAY training course in Preparatory Level Planning and Scheduling will happen and we will be giving the appraisals of the attendees who will be drawn from a number of Organisations.

Of course in future we will offer remote training but the first course has to be a classroom event!

DON'T FORGET THOUGH THIS MEANS THE GUILD WILL EXTEND LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPS UNTIL THE END OF MARCH SO TAKE ADVANTAGE, JOIN THE GUILD GET THE DISCOUNTS AND STAND OUT FROM OTHERS! Guild Members WE WILL BE LAUNCHING THE CERTIFICATIONS VERY SOON! LIFETIME MEMBERS GET THE DISCOUNTS FOR LIFE!
