New Short Course Inspire Sessions

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

If you haven’t got the time to send either yourself or your staff on a  day long course but you still want the same impact then try our Inspire Sessions. Only of up to 3 hours duration but with a significant impact given the opportunity for a follow up.

Also the subject matter is different in that they are unusual subjects but ones which have day to day relevance to the workplace but are often overlooked with more traditional development programmes.
