"I have virtually eliminated overtime for me and my team!"

"I have virtually eliminated overtime for me and my team!"

 

Imagine meeting every milestone and client delivery easily without overtime for your team.

 

 

Believe me, I have worked long hours with unforgiving budgets and stressful environments. I have seen exhausted teams and met frustrating circumstances.

 

But then, in 2015, I completely changed my outlook on project planning for film and television.

 

As a result, I got my dream position and have since delivered over 25 000 animated shots under budget to happy clients while prioritizing the team’s well-being. 

 

And I want you to know that you can do the same!

 

 

That’s why I created this course for Producers, Project Managers, and Team Leaders who want to cultivate project planning principles to eliminate overtime and reduce stress.

Master your project schedule and eliminate overtime!
