Course description

Effective Audit Committees

Virtual Learning Room: Restrict your travel, not your training

For many years, we have supported our clients while development programmes have been under pressure to minimise time away from the desk. We have successfully implemented blended learning techniques, using technology to provide ultimate flexibility.

We now find ourselves in unprecedented territory. In-person development programmes will be under greater scrutiny than ever. Whether your concern is health-related, the environment or ROI, suspending investment in people will be costly in the long-run with an impact on performance, risk exposure and morale.

Euromoney Virtual Learning provides a range of options that will enable your people to participate in learning events from the comfort of their base location. Virtual solutions range from on-demand, bite-sized online learning to fully customised, live and interactive experiences with our world-renowned subject matter experts.

For more information on how we can provide cost-effective learning programmes for your global teams without the need for travel, get in touch with us by clicking the "Information Request" button

Guaranteed to Run (GTR)

Organising your training and development is now easier than ever with our Guaranteed to Run (GTR) courses. With this initiative, you can plan your training in advance – including travel and accommodation - without any concern of cancellation and take advantage of the huge cost savings and peace of mind.

To find out which courses are Guaranteed to Run in 2020, please download the GTR brochure or the 2020 Global Calendar on our website. 

We know how inconvenient it can be when training is cancelled, so we are committed to standing by our GTR schedule. We will only ever cancel a GTR course due to circumstances outside of our control, such as natural disasters and illness, and will always work with you to find a happy alternative.
