CorpToday Magazine has just named Procept as its "Best Project Management Advisory & Training Company in Canada". The magazine states that Procept is "in a unique position to help clients pivot to online training during the COVID crisis. While many of [Procept's] smaller competitors have struggled to deal with COVID-triggered shutdowns and their resulting economic impacts, Procept has expanded its client base by demonstrating its readiness to deliver effective, engaging online learning in both instructor-led and self-directed formats."
Kevin Aguanno, Procept's president, responded to the award, saying "We were proud to learn of this award. Getting through the COVID-19 pandemic was very challenging for training companies as social distancing guidelines shut down classroom learning and everyone had to pivot to online learning quickly. Fortunately, Procept has been delivering online learning for many years and we had a robust online delivery capability in place to rapidly respond to clients who wanted to switch to online training. They needed someone to help and we were already there, waiting."
Many other training companies failed to make the change to online delivery, or did so with poor results. "People don't want to sit in front of an all-day webinar. They want interaction. They want engagement," says Procept CEO Carlo Barrettara, "and we invested strategically to get a number of our instructors through Humber Institute of Technology in their Virtual Instructor-Led Training certification program. This proved to our clients that Procept instructors knew how to design online training to be engaging, and had passed a practical exam demonstrating their ability to be able to do so. It have customers confidence in working with us."
Aguanno adds "We have won over many new clients during this challenging time as our competitors could not adapt to this new reality. We were ready."
This latest award for Procept follows its 2019 award from CIOReview Magazine as one of the "10 Most Promising IT Service Management Consulting Companies."
