ACPI Salon Webinar – Wednesday, June 18th – 5 PM ET

“Developing Markets in Career Development Practice”

Career professionals have long acknowledged that ‘traditional’ markets for our services have expanded well beyond our home countries and continents. And with innovative web-based applications, delivery mechanisms are evolving more rapidly than ever, helping us expand our reach to new audiences.

But is a command of technology enough to succeed in ‘developing’ world markets?

Join Allan Gatenby for an insider’s view on the ‘pressures and pleasures’ of building a career practice in a population of a billion plus people – India!

His fast-paced and engaging presentation will investigate:

  • Global trends of changed practice
  • Responses that practitioners are making to market place changes
  • Implications for individual practice and professional support, and
  • First steps in venturing into new markets

Prepare to get a taste of what career means in a whole new world of talent and economic surge!

This is another free member benefit of ACP International.
