How will I benefit from attending an Expertship program?

This is NOT a typical training program. It is delivered in a collegiate, collaborative manner, with virtually no PowerPoint. The facilitator helps create an immersive learning experience for top technical talent. And participants get many benefits, which they love. And their personal feedback is hugely positive.

The program is available for experts as a public program that individual experts can attend (delivered live by an Expertship coach, but virtually), or as an in-house organisational program. Participants get to work with experts from other knowledge domains and other organizations - a rich learning experience.

Public programs start quarterly. Check dates and availability of our Public Programs for Subject Matter Experts in several regions of the world.
