Marketing & Inovation

Why are these topics so important right now?

According to the OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) with the impact of Ukraine war, global economic activity will decline in 2023. As a result, the global GDP will drop by $2.8 trillion this upcoming year.

But what does this ghastly number mean for training providers? In April 2009, 44% of larger organisations reduced their training budgets resulting in a fall of 20% of training spent.

In this event you will learn what training companies must do to thrive in these turbulent markets.
