What Our Clients Say

“I recommend Kay Wais for all your Project Management needs, she is a wonderful instructor. Very easy to talk to and understand, she also incorporates a lot of fun activities in the learning process to enhance learning. I love that she has everything from 30 minute classes to 16 hour classes, whatever your needs are, she will make it fit.”

Miranda Eisermann
Training Coordinator
Trane Company

“I want to thank you again for putting together an excellent workshop.  I have taken several courses on PM and I have to say, without a doubt, I left this one with more take-a-ways that are applicable to my work in product development than any other.  Of most importance were the tips and tools I learned on time estimating.  It will be most helpful as I prepare the business case for my next project.  After 40 years of managing projects of various sizes, I think I am finally able to transition from a dominating “seat of the pants” approach to an approach that is much more disciplined.  Never too late, I guess.”

“Kay was lively and entertaining, with a great grasp of the material. I liked the clickers and the class involvement.”

Jerial Knight, Project Management Workshop Participant

“The instructor was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject matter. She kept the class interesting and brought up good examples. The risk plan analysis and the concept of negative stakeholders was most helpful.”

Stan, Project Management Workshop Participant

“She (Kay Wais) loves what she does! Her experience makes her credible. Her voice and presentation make her effective in front of the room.”

Jeni German, Project Management Workshop Participant

“Kay is an experienced project manager, able to elaborate on “book” answers when “real world” differs. Very engaging. The WBS and network diagram exercises were very helpful.”

“Great value for the money – fun, interactive. I taught Risk today and used lots of things you had taught! I stressed opportunities and used the EESA and MATA (which you taught me). I will recommend some of my Advanced PM students to come.”
