You also will learn how to identify and leverage success factors for future initiatives. Common challenges and their solutions will be discussed in large and small group discussions.The course concludes with the creation of individual action plans for program execution and final reports.

Australia & New Zealand testimonials



"More than any other learning event in my time working in L&D, I feel that this will have immediate relevance and application to my work.  I recommend this programme without hesitation, not only for Learning and Development Professionals, but even for General Managers and Executive Teams"


Andy Corbin, L&D Programmes Developer, IHC.



"For me, the best thing about attending the Kirkpatrick Four Levels Evaluation programme was to be able to connect the dots. The programme takes a holistic and diagnostic approach which helps L&D professionals to establish connections between evaluation, Organisational Development, performance and engagement. Learning it all straight from Jim was a unique experience - very rewarding."

Adrita Mukhopadhyay

Ministry of Justice - Wellington

"I attended the two day Kirkpatrick training last year, and I suggest that it should be compulsory training for all Learning & Development practitioners! The course catered well for those new to the Kirkpatrick Model and also to those already familiar with the framework. In practical terms, not only did the course help us with developing a more robust evaluation process (beyond learner reactions), but also with a re-think of our entire approach to needs analysis, learning delivery and on the job support practices. Plus having Jim Kirkpatrick deliver this course with the GMD team was an absolute bonus."

Carolyn Bates

Christchurch City Council

"Being a HR professional I was quite skeptical about the benefit of this training for myself and the organisation I am working for at first. However, during the training I realised its full potential and how it could help us to improve our current processes and practices. From time to time in my work I would come across a situation where an employee was given all the possible training opportunities, but still failed to apply a learned skills and behaviours on a job. This training helped us to identify what we been missing and how to fix a problem.

The training was very inspirational, energising, bringing lots of ideas. I feel that all the techniques used, the methods, the powerpoint were extremely good. At no point did I feel that the training was “dragging on”. There was a lot of energy and enthusiasm not only from the facilitators but the training participants as we all were so engaged in what was happening in the room. It is great to have Kirkpatrick facilitators with so much energy. I felt challenged and consistently drawn into the exercises, discussions and presentations had my full attention due to the way in which they were conducted. Thank you a lot!"

Maryna Bilousova, Workforce Development Manager 

Pact Group - Dunedin

"I attended the KP workshop in Christchurch last year hosted by GMD Partnerships.  The workshop was of great value and I immediately made use of the tools and strategies taught to improve the value of my own training sessions for business clients around New Zealand.  I highly recommend the workshop to those interested in ensuring that training returns a return on investment."

"Wendy took the time to listen intently to feedback that challenged the thinking and ideas. I did not feel that this was "the Kirkpatrick way and that's all."

Message from Dr Jim Kirkpatrick:


In December 2012, I co-facilitated the first ever Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Programme in New Zealand alongside David and Mark of GMD Partnerships. This has enabled me to accredit both David and Mark to facilitate on behalf of Kirkpatrick Partners, and I fully endorse them to deliver Kirkpatrick training programs to our New Zealand and Australia community. 


David and Mark recently presented a New Zealand case study at the Australian Institute of Training and Development International Conference in Melbourne on the practical application of the Kirkpatrick Model. In doing so, they demonstrated theoretical and practical knowledge of the model that is changing the way L&D practitioners are building bridges and partnering with their businesses. You will find their delivery style encouraging and enlightening, and I know you will enjoy every minute of your participation in this programme.

All the best,




Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick
