What they say about us

"As a lawyer in a busy practice, finding the time to undertake continuing legal development was a challenge. This all changed about five years ago, when I found CPDforMe Online. Initially, I was attracted by its convenience. Over the years, I have come to take advantage of so much more. From our first contact, Paula’s main concern, as founder of CPDforMe, was to ensure I gained the most from the online seminars. This year, I had the honour of being invited to be a presenter for CPDforMe Online. Knowing Paula's professionalism and the quality of other CPDforMe presenters, I had no hesitation accepting her offer. Over the years, cannot tell you how many key insights and take-homes I've received from CPDforMe, which has helped grow my practice, even in trying times. Highly recommend CPDforMe, for any lawyer, accountant or professional advisor looking to stay up-to-date with the law, meet their professional obligations and gain practical insights to grow their professional business."
William Attoh
Principal Director - Legal Made Easy
"CPD for Me gives you the opportunity to understand how the best performers do it and what actions you need to take to emulate their success."
Sam Coupland

"Paula was great to deal with and the site was easy to use with relevant and interesting content at great value."
Sarah Wainwright
Senior Associate and Accredited Family Law Specialist at Lander & Rogers
"After I retired as full time Judge, I now provide pro bono legal advice to charities and other not for profit organisations and need to get CPD points. This year I went with CPD For Me. I have learnt a lot from these excellent presentations and found it to be a convenient and efficient way of satisfying my CPD requirements."
Frank Marks
Mediator and Arbitrator
"I have been using Paula for years for my CPD points. I am impressed with the speakers and contents of the lectures. Paula will always contact you if you need any help. Even out of office hours. I cannot recommend her enough".
Kathleen Berck
Principal at Berck Solicitors Brisbane
"We recently engaged Paula to help with our firm CPD, SEO and staff training. Energetic, professional and offering a perspective that is otherwise not available in the legal space. Great product, great service. We will be continuing the chat. Thanks Paula"
