Howzit My China?
Wait, what?! You may be wondering what this has to do with price of tea in China? Or why 2023 is the “bull” in the China shop??
China symbolises a 20th anniversary…..and that’s exactly what this is! Thrive is 20 years old this month! Who would’ve thought?
And in sincere gratitude and recognition of your important role in this journey, we’re offering you – Thrive Tribe – the gift of our time and support through this bumpy, changing landscape. A free QCTO information webinar is scheduled for the morning of 16 February. Seats are limited to the first 100 responses – so feel free to sign up and we’ll send you a coupon for this complimentary information sharing session.
I look forward to engaging with more of you this year as we move towards a more interactive and personable Thrive experience.
Thank you for walking alongside us and for making our dream possible. We couldn’t have done this without you…
Yours in Skills,
Andrea, Ingrid, and the whole Thrive team
