Several of our long time customers have recently been asking about workshops that we put on a few years ago to help our clients with upcoming technology issues that would apply to the business world.
After some discussion we have decided to bring back our workshop series and make it available to all of our clients and collegues.
Further, we have partnered with Jane Sleeth from Optimal Performance Consultants to add a very special workshop regarding accessibility and the new AODA laws that go into effect January 1, 2012.
The workshops are designed as morning events and run for 3 hours. Continental breakfast and refreshments are included and copies of the workshop materials will be provided for the attendees to take with them. Workshops have a minimum regsitration to proceed.
They will be held at our offices at 312-515 Consumers Road in North York.
Here is a list of the available workshops and dates:
