"I had so many ideas going around in my head I was lacking focus. I booked a mentoring call and it was so helpful for me to pick the brains of someone who has worked successfully in the organising industry. I now have the focus and motivation to drive my business forward.”

"I have just attended the Introductory Training course and have come away inspired, motivated and with all the knowledge I need to build my business. The trainers were fantastic, all the other attendees were as excited as me. I feel as if I have saved myself months of learning the hard way and it was FUN!”

“I have always loved organising things and had heard recently that was a whole industry out there doing what I love and getting paid for it. I took the opportunity to have a consultation call with someone from the APDO team and they explained fully what to expect, what kinds of clients used the service and the pros and cons of becoming a Professional Organiser. The best market research I could have done. Money well spent!"
