Operating in New Environments


Welcome to the ‘Preparedness Pathway’ – a series of one-day sector specific workshops to support organisations and their workers. With the aim of ‘Positioning Organisations for New Environments’, these workshops consider:

  • Are you ready?
  • Where do you fit in?
  • What else do you need to do?
  • What can you offer?
