Webinar 4.

The new future and what it means for you.

Thursday April 30th 12.30pm – 1.15pm

In this interactive webinar Mel will share critical thinking, strategies and tools to help you manage these situations. We also encourage sharing from participants so we can all learn from each other.

As the “new normal” settles into view, leaders and business owners will be grappling with some questions. Some likely scenarios could include

– a newly shaped team, with new skills and expectations around flexible and digital working
– a different suite (or revenue mix) of products and services and roles that have rapidly changed
– ongoing ambiguity around the economy and how to be nimble and use critical thinking to look for opportunities.
