Procept - The Role of the PMO in Strategy Execution

Great instructor. Efficient. Personable.

Brigid Elmy, BSW, PMP, Manager, School of Continuing Education, Ryerson University:

Amin vividly highlighted how his blended knowledge and experience helped him to set up a Project Management Office (PMO) in McDonald's Restaurants of Canada Ltd. Amin's professional background and experience in project management makes his a precious asset to University of Toronto in instructing and mentoring students who want to excel in the field of IT project management.

Mohsen Rostami, PMP:

Amin is perfectly equipped with great insight, knowledge and experience as a university level instructor. Besides that his relationship building skills and capability and efforts on understanding each individual students' needs makes him an excellent instructor. Both working with Amin and joining his lectures have always been great experiences for me.

Mustafa Aksut, PMP, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto:

Amin taught intro to Project Management at the University of Toronto, his understanding of the subject matter and ability to transfer that knowledge made the course both enjoyable and educational.

Brian Bosma, Academic Publishing Manager, NCOGrenville:

Amin provided an excellent overview of the Foundations of Project Management at the University of Toronto. His teaching methods were clear, extremely informative and most importantly, helped me to land my first job as a Project Manager. Amin was a pleasure to learn from and an excellent instructor overall.

Beth Dunford, PMP, Canadian Partnership Against Cancer:

Amin makes a rather dry subject, project management, interesting, and at times, fun. Taking a course through distance education can be difficult but Amin was great at keeping students engaged and on track. If you're looking to take a project management course, I'd easily recommend Amin as an instructor.
