ELEVATE TA FOCUS DAY

Elevate TA Focus day

Monday November 16, 2020: 12pm – 3pm

Elevate TA exists to equip the most curious, ambitious, and driven TA leaders with the knowledge, skills and experiences they need to increase their influence and transform their impact in TA and beyond.

It will share real life stories of how TA silo-breakers have added breadth and depth to their skill set to expand their empires beyond TA and increase their wider business impact.

Taking part will place you on a fast track to becoming a business leader, not just a TA leader, give you a chance to expand your scope beyond TA and leave you inspired, energized and ready for action.
