Management, HR and finance training

April 23, 2020

As many tourism businesses shut their doors to protect staff and members of the public, it’s a good time to brush up on your skills in the area of management, HR and finances. By upskilling now, you and your business will navigate the global health crisis armed with information and practical know-how.

When it comes to the areas of management, HR and finance, the website of your Local Enterprise Office (LEO) is a good source of free training.

Many LEOs are offering virtual coffee mornings at the moment with guidance on COVID-19, while others are offering online sessions on topics such as:

  • Leading a team and other stakeholders remotely
  • Cash flow projections in a crisis
  • HR scenario planning
  • Forecasting and risk management in an uncertain world
