What do people say about Pretty Agile’s online SAFe LPM training?

Thank you again Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson and the girls at Pretty Agile! Passed with flying colours and owe it all to your fantastic training facilitation! Love your work! 🙂
A big "Thank you!" to Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson for the great coaching, instruction and accommodation - as always! Pretty Agile was able to support my learning goals through offering the virtual SAFe Lean Portfolio Management training (while they were in Australia) - an opportunity I was able to seize. I live in North America (Central time) and was able to alter my work schedule to take the course during the U.S. evening hours. Highly recommend Pretty Agile training. #tribalunity
