The relationships they build may and often do lead to new opportunities.

    As an organisation, can we have the free training day?

    Yes. But you will either need to become an enabler and have right to a maximum of 5 participants as a sponsor or send your employees to training days at other events enabled by other organisations.

    As a school or university, may I also facilitate a free training day?

    Yes. Let’s discuss. We may have other enablers, sponsors, partners and even old participants in the community ready to sponsor free training days for young talent at schools and universities.

    What is the value for enablers?

    • You get to showcase your company, vision, workplace to potential new talent, partners, trainers and coaches.
