Montana businesses have been through a lot in a short time due to COVID-19. The uncertainty around the pandemic is concerning for many professionals like yourself. At Prospera, we want to help you get back to business. That’s why we’ve teamed up with experts from across the state of Montana who will guide you through virtual workshops and discussions that will give you the confidence to make business decisions, no matter what the new normal may be.
Your time and energy are valuable. And we know that.
We’ve designed these training sessions to make sure we give you quality and relevant topics to ensure your business’s engagement and connection during this new normal.
Learn something you didn’t know your business needed.
The documents reviewed during the trainings will be shared with you so you can reference them or share them with managers or employees after the trainings.
Quality and relevant trainings are important to you. Save your spot for whichever trainings apply to your business’s needs. Our trainings cover a wide range of topics such as Leadership Webinar: Guiding Teams through Turbulence with Karen Lum.
We also know that the pandemic has hit different industries in various ways. The service industry has been hit differently than financial services have. Our trainings have been designed to accommodate any Montana industry. Our focus is to make sure that no matter what struggles your business is facing, that there is a professional you can relate to and gain insight and advice from, whether it’s a workshop facilitator or a peer in your training group.
Save your spot for specific training sessions on how to navigate COVID-19 below. All trainings are provided free by Prospera through the help of WBC grant funds for any professional in Montana. You do not need a Prospera membership to access these resources.
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with the date and time of the training, your facilitator’s information, and a link to join the virtual session from Prospera. Please add the training to your calendar and forward the signup link to anyone who could benefit from these trainings––co-workers, business partners, peers, or other working professionals in your network. Together, we can continue to learn and grow through this pandemic.
