Formed in 2009 Our Story

Formed in 2009 by John Bolton and Paul Naybour, Parallel has since gone from strength to strength.

Paul and John formed Parallel to offer better quality and cost-effective training to up and coming project managers. Paul and John each have over 20 years of experience in the project management training business. Following the 2008 crash, they could see that customers wanted more cost-effective and flexible training. For example, we were the first to write up the APM courses in a study guide, the first to publish the APM course as podcasts, the first to offer distance learning for the APM PMQ course. We were quite amazed that our podcasts have well over 1 million downloads.

We also believe in interactive and practical training. All our trainers are project managers first, and we think we all learn better when we are having fun. So we try hard to make our interactions, classroom or webinar, engaging, participative and interacting.

Over the years, we have developed a small but experienced team of like-minded employees and associates. We work hard to instil our values of engagement in participation in the way we run the company. We use the latest technology to manage bookings and deliver e-learning, developing systems that keep you informed about your course.

Finally, we're with you all the way, where every you career takes you we aim to make you more successful. Many of the people we trained at the start of their careers are now Programme Managers and Heads of Project Management, and they now use us to train their teams.

Fresh & Engaging Interactive Learning

Our customers tell us we deliver interactive and engaging learning. Whether it's a classroom event, an on-line webinar or facilitated project kick-off, we design the session to maintain interest and keep up high energy levels. We use buzz groups, discussions, practical demonstrations, role-play, simulation and presentations to keep everyone engaged and participating.
