A bit about Project Learning and its key people



  Want to know more about us?  Here's the detail, not the mission statement.  

Key people

Andy Jessop

Andy has been in the Project Management industry since 1983, fulfilling a number of roles ranging from customer support representative to managing director and a whole range of posts in between.

As Project Learning's expert on all things Microsoft Project and Microsoft EPM, Andy has helped literally thousands of users around the world make Microsoft Project work for them.  He's even worked with Microsoft to define the curriculum and examination questions that assess technical Microsoft Project competencies.

Andy is a regular tips and tricks presenter and has been an active member and officer of the Microsoft Project User Group since 2002.  He is also the lead content developer for the Project Mentor family of products and is a Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist and Microsoft Certified Trainer.

When Andy's not involved with training, consultancy or development engagements he tries to find time to get outside and enjoy life; liking nothing more than long motorcycle rides on the open roads not far from his home.
