Open-enrollment leadership training events in Calgary this month

CPALast fall, I was excited to announce that for the third year in a row, I am partnering with the Chartered Professional Accountants of Alberta (CPA Alberta) to deliver high-quality cost-effective leadership skills training in a series of “public” programs.  What’s special about these programs is that they are open to ANYONE from ANY organization.  As many of you already know, most of my leadership training events are for specific client organizations, which means that only their employees can attend.  With this partnership with CPA Alberta though, even if you work in a smaller organization that doesn’t have the budget to run onsite leadership training programs, this is your chance to invest in yourself and your leaders’ competency and skill development!

Two leadership training events in Calgary on January 26 and 30

The first two events in Calgary in this series are coming up at the end of the month.  So if you live in or near Calgary AB, don’t miss this opportunity to invest in yourself and your leaders’ competency and skill development at a very reasonable cost, and a fraction of what it can cost through some commercial vendors.

Remember, this is open enrollment!

Again … you DO NOT have to be a member of CPA Alberta to register.  Continue reading
