“Sustainability in Business” Training Course
We have developed a series of half day training courses designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to solve specific issues around sustainability and other in their own organisations. Participants share their own experiences and learn from others in similar roles about what has (and what hasn’t) worked for them.
The training course offers a space for people to meet and share experiences and solutions to the difficulties they face in their organisations. Sessions will include individual objective setting, peer-to-peer support and facilitated discussions, expert speakers and a tour of the interesting features at the event site. These will make this course an enjoyable and useful resource.
