"As a senior leader with the City of Saint John, I had the opportunity to engage the services of UNB’s College of Extended Learning during the summer of 2015 to deliver a project management training module to our team of professional public sector staff. From initial point of contact to delivery, the process was seamless; the team at UNB listened carefully to our needs and designed and delivered an impactful training program. The sessions were highly engaging, utilizing hands on case studies and resource materials which were customized to meet our needs. The training program proved to be a valuable resource to bolster our capability in project management; an essential competency for our team’s success. Importantly, we are seeing the benefits of this investment, with our team putting this knowledge into practice in their day-to-day work in delivering municipal planning services to citizens of Saint John. UNB brings in-depth subject matter expertise, excellent communication skills and a high level of professionalism to the programs they deliver. I would highly recommend their services to clients looking for professional development opportunities."

"The “Creating a Professional Social Media Presence” workshop with David Shipley was very informative and covered many aspects of the industry with excellent content and examples.
