In this workshop you will learn Sarah’s top 12 strategies AND 15 best practice strategies being used by high performing organisations in Australia right now, that will help every organisational training and development professional ensure that they are facilitating excellence in professional development, whilst keeping their senior bean-counters on their side, as well.
