Restorative Justice Council – Developing best practice through shared learning

on March 3, 2017

Unlike more traditional training events, this event offers participants the unique opportunity to set their own discussion agendas on the day. It’s a pro-active learning experience, with everyone encouraged to communicate on the issues that matter most. Attendees will work in a series of facilitated break-out groups, enabling them to shape their own learning through asking questions and answering these collectively. All that is required is an open mind, curiosity and a willingness to share.

Lunch and informal networking with other key senior business professionals will follow.
