Workshops and tutorials

"Mix & Match" customised workshop/tutorials can be designed for individuals or small groups from the same organisation. Most workshops last 3–5 hours.

Workshops include a selection of material from existing courses supplemented with additional information defined in consultation with the client.

Presentation is informal and can explore in some depth areas of specific interest. Non-disclosure agreements will be put in place if confidential matters are to be discussed.

One or more of PRA's experts or external consultants will present the workshops, on a date to be agreed.
