TO ALL THE WOMEN OUT THERE

WE SEE YOU!

It is Women’s Month and we would like to honour and applaud all the amazing women out there!

When Ingrid and I started Thrive –  we were determined to instill a culture of celebrating women in both our business and personal ethos. We take off our hats to everyone out there that contributes to the recognition of women and their unique and powerful place in business and society.

So much has changed during this pandemic…the concept of traditional training has changed radically! Being physically present in a training venue is no longer the only learning option. We have now entered an age that if you have access to a computer – you have access to quality training – wherever you are!

Thrive is thrilled to announce that we are a part of this revolution in online education and that we have worked out how to safely and comfortably offer our ever-popular courses online.

Even our super-interactive assessor’s course, complete with our unique workmat activity format designed to impart the required skills and education experience to excel at this important role,  is now available online! So, when you are ready to get your team upskilled, we are here for you – face-to-face or online. Your choice 🙂

Stay safe & warm Thrive Tribe!

Yours in skills,
Andrea
