Workshops and webinars
Whether we are running face to face workshops or online webinars, we have the ability to tailor our programme to suit your mentoring project. We see a great opportunity with a group of mentors to create a learning community and support the development of an internal network.
Face to face workshops can be 1/2 day or 1 day. They can be run for mentors and mentees in parallel with an opportunity for them to mix and perhaps meet their chosen partner. Give us a call to see how we can help.
