Strategic hr academy


Hello! I’ve set up this digital Strategic HR Academy which is based on the face-to-face training I’ve been running for the last ten years.

I hope this Academy might be a useful resource for you or your colleagues, particularly given the lack of time / opportunity many HR professionals have had to attend training recently and the criticality of strategic HR to business success through and beyond the pandemic.

Courses consists of about ten hours of pre-recorded videos and other learning materials. Study groups share the learning experience and academy membership provides access to the member zone forums.
