Essentials of NGO Management is a ‘crash course’ on everything that it is important around international development and NGO management. We had a great variety of trainers and all the practical information that is so important when we want to apply the knowledge acquired into our current jobs in the NGO sector. The staff at NGO Management School were absolutely great. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and highly recommend it.

Excellent course! It was both useful and fun to meet knowledgeable trainers with lots of practical experience, spend time with other people working in NGOs from around the world, learn together with them and exchange ideas. I can’t wait to put everything I learned in practice and continue my career in the NGO sector with confidence and great enthusiasm!

A comprehensive, well-structured and highly interactive HR training by an excellent, well-experienced and competent trainer conducted in a great training facility. Logistical support from the NGO Management School was superb too. Indeed, a priceless learning experience worth the long travel from Manila to Geneva.

Very nice and interactive learning from the course. It offered the great opportunity to learn from and share expertise with people from around the globe, and from the very experienced trainer. The NGO Management School is doing best efforts and the training is most useful.

I really enjoyed my course at the NGO Management School. The small group and the experienced trainer really allowed for discussions and personal attention. I also highly appreciated the willingness of the trainer to offer assistance outside the course. The location was ideal and in general all logistical aspects were excellent. A huge thank you to the warm and friendly staff - you made me feel very welcome!

Caroline is a great trainer and coach. The course is direct, practical and empowering. I'd definitely recommend a course with her as trainer, teacher or coach!

As a non-NGO professional, I found the course Essentials of NGO Management very useful and professional. The different speakers were very engaging and truly knowledged in their sphere. I also really enjoyed the group and everyone's life experience which brought the discussions to life.
