PM4NGOs is excited to welcome its latest training partner – Pyramid Learning

Although Pyramid Learning is a new partner, its Co-Founders – Mike Culligan and John Cropper – are old friends of PM4NGOs. In fact, Mike and John wrote the first version of PMD Pro back in 2010 and actually created PM4NGOs itself.So in many ways, it is not ‘welcome’ but ‘welcome home’.Mike and John have a simple mission for Pyramid Learning. They want to make quality learning appropriate, accessible and actionable. In other words, they want to help those doing good, do even better”. www.pyramidlearning.org
