"In March 2015 APDO-UK was fortunate enough to have Anne Blumer of the Institute of Professional Organizers as one of their main speakers for their conference. Anne gave two talks on day 2 of our conference. One was a keynote speech about different kinds of clients, the different kinds of approaches and case studies. The other was a talk about personal safety for the professional organiser. As APDO-UK President and conference organizer I couldn't have been more lucky to have found Anne and contact her to be one of our speakers. She absolutely knows her "stuff", is an engaging speaker and our attendees were impressed by her professionalism and her know-how. On a personal note I was overwhelmed by Anne's kindness and her interest in our association, it's members and our conference. Thank you Anne! I know our paths will cross again in the future!"
Warm regards, Ingrid Jansen
President of APDO-UK (the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers in the UK)
“A small class size greatly facilitated discussion and a calmer pace to the sessions. All of Ms. Blumer's feedback was carefully considered and constructive. Her training materials are constructed with tremendous care and can unquestionably allow a new professional to launch a career immediately, or give a seasoned professional a fresh perspective on the craft. NAPO's offerings are (1) costly, (2) not easily accessible, and (3) don't allow me to launch immediately. Ms. Blumer is warm, funny and very encouraging. Make the investment!”

"Anne is a lovely, talented, business savvy woman. She was open and friendly and made the class a fun place to spend three days together working and learning. I learned a great deal in the short amount of time we spent together. I would eagerly attend another practicum with her.”

"Anne, the training preparation material, the seminar and your subject matter expertise were invaluable to me. This was money well spent, and it is clear you are very interested in the success of your clients and students. I am looking forward to many more training sessions.

"The Institute for Professional Organizers was key in the success in the start-up of my business The Organized Haven. Without the layer one training my business would not have been launched so successfully.”
