In-person & virtual workshops

Professional development and team-building for elected councils
Having the elected body share the same learning at the same time can be a very effective way to not only provide professional development for councillors, but to shape a team from a mix of elected representatives. We offer a range of workshops for the elected body which can be delivered in person or online. These workshops are an ideal supplement to your local council’s induction and professional development programs.
