Client Testimonials

“The Big Picture training was clear, well-structured and well-balanced with high impact result. It was a powerful training which created interest and excitement through hands-on activities. Both SMEs (Gregor and Anton) engaged well with the attendees, explained each point to the fullest and emphasized the key points. They responded well to questions and even provided practical industry examples and best practices. Overall a job well done! Thank you for all your great work, Gregor and Anton.”

Flora Hilvano, Agile Coach, National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB

“Actonic provided training and consulting services for our team, and we are really happy with this collaboration. The consultations we had were tailored to our specific needs and provided exactly what we needed. We loved the fact that there were two trainers (Amal and Anton) rather than one, as it meant they could answer all our questions – and we had a lot! Our group was very diverse, consisting of people from IT, Marketing, Planning departments, etc, and the trainers handled it brilliantly. Overall, a job well done, thank you!”

Edith Hirte, Consultant, Humboldt Forum in Berliner Schloss

“The training was well-structured and very informative – a great combination of in-depth knowledge, thorough analysis and excellent feedback, but most importantly, it was very practice-oriented. Definitely beneficial for anyone using Atlassian products. Great job. Please keep it up!”

Christopher Meissner, Product Manager,  EFR GmbH
