New Face to Face courses in New Zealand

COVID is (hopefully) over and as we emerge blinking in the sunlight, we realise we can go back to face to face training. Without doubt this is the best medium for improving our knowledge especially when they are hosted by our amazing Raine Selles. Raine brings many years of experience to her training seminars and backs up the facts about contracts, delay, disruption, programming, etc with real life anecdotes and stories that help you learn how to be more effective and efficient.

Planned courses for the first quarter of 2023 are:
