They say the only constant in life is change!

The Change Master Class is designed to build your skills in planning, implementing and leading change processes effectively, whether you are in an HR, OD, operations or change role.  

Elephant workshops are practical, outcome-based learning sessions so you’ll leave with useful, real-life tools, templates and answers to use when you get back to work. We also have some great discussions and answer any questions you have with practical solutions and ideas you can really use.

What people say about attending:

I thought it was a really well thought out workshop. Nikki delivered it amazingly and gave some very
helpful pointers.

Really good use of humour and being down to earth. Brought to the discussion some timely issues that HR and change practitioners are dealing with on a day-to-day basis.

A fantastic course overall. The fact that I came away with some essential knowledge meant I could come into work and confidently make changes

I really enjoyed it, there was a variety of content and some helpful tips and information
