Free Online Boot Camp | Exclusive for public servants in local government | Register by 3 September 📅




COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way people work – especially in government. Even as lockdown starts to lift, many offices still have some or all employees working from home, and it seems that some of the changes brought on by COVID-19 will have long-term impact.

You’ll get insights about how to develop your remote working skills, tailored specifically for the challenges facing public servants in Local Government.
