We’re delighted with the support our ‘Academy Lite’ has received from our clients, networks and people. The courses were originally intended to help everybody develop, learn, and grow regardless of their circumstances during the pandemic.
Because of the support we have received, we’ve decided to start working on a new Academy ready to launch in the New Year. Don’t worry though; all the courses produced so far will remain available to view on this site.
Our new-look Academy will be free to attend and will have a mixture of business and technology topics designed to help you think differently, improve your knowledge, and help you build a better business.
If you’re on our mailing list already, we’ll be sure to update you. If not, please join below and we’ll keep you up to date with the new-look Academy.
