About us

Millpond originated in 2011 to present a new face to Project Management in New Zealand. A company dedicated to integrity and excellence was formed and they and their team continue to live and breathe the values of excellence that sets Millpond apart.

Realising the need for education in Project Management, they purchased Falcon Training, a local Project Management education provider in 2015. Millpond and Falcon Training merged in 2020 to provide the complete suite of professional Project Management services.

“The nature of complex, enterprise scale projects is that they can become chaotic – so big they are difficult to conceptualise and then execute. Millpond comes with a unique mix of experience, skills and project management tools, as well as the ability to be flexible and respond to our organisation’s challenges.”

(Based on 2020 Customer Research Project)
