Join GWO for our new Expert Series Webinars and investigate digitalisation and training. Each week we look at the topic from a specific angle, sharing the insights from our panel of industry professionals.

Today's episode concentrates on the topic of digitalisation and its impact on quality of learning. As digital technologies promise so much, can they be implemented in a GWO training system and support learning objectives to the same degree of quality? Could digital training one day deliver 100% of a GWO course? We'll consider these topics and more with our panel, followed by a chance for you to ask them questions.
