EXPERT THEMED WORKSHOPS

Each week you will attend a different expert-themed workshop. Workshops are group sessions delivered by a specialist covering a specific theme. Workshops are held on a Tuesday morning and will last three hours. You will then have a follow-up 1:1 meeting with each theme expert. These are individual sessions scheduled for one hour, during the week of their workshop.

  1. Expert-themed workshops will help challenge and inspire you, bringing new insights and perspectives to your organisation.
  2. 1:1 meetings will provide you with an opportunity to discuss and identify your specific issues with the each industry expert. They will support you and help build a bespoke Action Plan which applies to your organisation.
