I enrolled in the TMPC program as a professional development opportunity to help me elevate to the next level of my career and expand my knowledge and expertise in talent management.  The program challenged me to think at a higher strategic level and since completion of the program,  I have successfully incorporated principles taught in the program and as a result have advanced my career within my company.  I am grateful my company invests in professional development and I intend to evaluate other programs the Institute of OD offers.  I recommend other HR and OD professionals to take a certification program relevant to their field and area of interest.  It is worth the financial and time investments.

I recently completed the TMCP certification course that was given by Patti.  What an incredible experience.  I have been in Talent Acquisition for quite some time now and she was able to open my eyes to the broad spectrum of Talent Management.  Each class was very informative and provided me with many take aways.  The homework assignments are very detailed and require a lot of time and effort but they are so worth it.  If you are a talent acquisition/HR professional looking to further your education, look no further.  This class was very much worth the investment.  I am proud to say that I am now a TMCP certified professional!  Really awesome experience!!!!!

In my position as a Lead Talent Management specialist, I was keen to do justice to my role. Managing talent is my passion and this led me to initiate a wide search for a fit for purpose accredited course.  

Going back and forth after a period of 6 months I was convinced that the Talent Management Certification Program with IOD was indeed a program designed to suit my needs. I wanted to feel confident in supporting the Talent pipeline in an environment encompassing multiple generations and widely diverse with an approximate 72 different nationalities.

I must admit I was quite apprehensive at the start as I was geographically dispersed miles away and had to actively engage myself in a session that was scheduled from 1:30 – 4:30 am.

On completing my first session, I was taken aback, I loved communicating with Susan. Susan holds rich knowledge in the field of Talent Management. She beautifully managed active participation between all course participants, and most importantly time flew by so quickly as the discussions were absolutely engaging. I had prepared myself a potful of strong coffee and all I consumed was half a cup, this is simply to express how interesting the session was.

At the end of the session I felt really great as I had found a Coach, Mentor and friend in Susan. Even though we are miles apart, I was able to reach out to her at any time.

The materials provided are simple , easy to understand and implement. This rich learning experience has given birth to a new me, a woman who is confident and positive that she will continuously support the overflowing challenges in the field of Talent Management.

I strongly recommend this course to anyone who is passionate about TM and eager to find a new friend and Mentor.

I wanted to thank you and Susan for developing and facilitating such a terrific program.  The classes were very well done and I think everyone felt included in the discussions. I learned a tremendous amount from the program. I can’t tell you how useful it was to be going through the program while we were developing our Talent Management Strategic Plan.  I was able to put into practice the concepts we were learning.  This is the best way to learn!  I wish you both all the best and hope to be working with you again in the near future!

I recently took the Talent Management Certification Program from IOD and it was a rewarding experience. I truly enjoyed the wide variety of participants from all around the world, the presenters were professional ,thought provoking and engaging. The material was extremely relevant. I have applied a great deal of what I learned to my professional HR consulting business. My time taking the TMCP course was well worth the money and the effort and I would recommend TMCP to any HR professional. I will definitely be taking more programs from IOD in the near future.
