Training Opportunities

Whether you’re keen to kick-start a career as a professional organiser or eager to grow your business in any number of directions, APDO offers a range of training:

  • Starting A Professional Organising Business – a popular one-day course that takes place several times a year in London and Manchester. Places tend to sell out so book early to avoid disappointment.
  • Developing Your Professional Organising Business – a one-day intermediate course. Generally recommended for those who have run a PO business for at least a year and worked with a range of different clients.
  • Our annual conference includes expert speakers, panel discussions and workshops – all opportunities for professional development



"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!"
