Houston – USA, 2013.
We at Consult Lund have a strong partnership with the worldwide experts both in the academic and in the industry, where we guarantee your success. We currently work with the following academic fields: conferences; training courses; and seminars
One of our most popular programs, In-site Training is when we bring our courses to you (we run the course just for your team); you pick the course, location and the date.
We can work with you to design your own course outline. Typically, In-site training works best where you have a number of people requiring the same training or you have very specific outcomes from the training. Topics are focused on identified key areas and the course outline is shaped to achieve the desired outcomes and key learning points for those attending.
