We’re launching our Lunch and Learn workshops, aimed at giving people new knowledge and tools that they can bring back to their workplaces.

These workshops will cover topics people want to learn about, like the low-down on social media, or how to bring innovation into their daily lives.

Attendees can adopt those principles and implement them that afternoon.

We hope this will provide a lift to our overall competitiveness as a city.
