"I engaged Michael Young from Transformed to assess me for the Australian Institute of Project Management Certified Practicing Project Manager.

The assessment interview was very relaxed and more like a conversation than an assessment, which brought out the best experiences to evidence my capabilities. Because of Michael's current government security clearance, we were able to look at specific of particular projects, rather me than having to spend a heap of time sanitising documents. Since the assessment, I have been successful in gaining a promotion.."
