What some coordinators have said about Rob Thompson / RTTA:

An authentic and inspiring workshop! Our PhD students profited not only from Rob’s great experience as a trainer but also from his knowledge of the scientific working environment.
In the work with the participants, he effectively “en passant” demonstrated how humour and a high level of commitment can create a positive and motivating working atmosphere: a true lesson in leadership skills! Plus, truly a workshop highlight for our doctoral students.

Collaborating with Rob Thompson is always a pleasure. With his long time experience he always meets our demands and is very flexible and engaged when it comes to new concepts. PhD students as well as Postdocs appreciate his flexible and individual workshop style that focuses on participant’s demands and the real life issues they have to deal with. His open and committing personality creates a trustful atmosphere in the workshops and leads to high satisfaction of the participants and successful workshops with a great impact!

My students wanted a Scientific Management workshop and a colleague recommended Rob – it was a good choice: All participants agreed it was one of the best workshops they ever attended!

We have known Rob for several years now and have worked with him for at least 3 years. We appreciate the reliable and engaging cooperation with Rob. He is a very professional and experienced trainer. His workshops regularly receive very good reviews by participants. Our doctoral candidates and postdocs cherish especially the open structure and the fact that they decide on the topics dealt with in the workshops.
