Online-only live events conducted in real time;  presentations are delivered by one of our expert speakers and last around 45 minutes, and include the opportunity to ask questions.


Workshops are interactive, experiential, online sessions featuring discussion and practical exercises, and are particularly suitable for soft-skill development. A workshop lasts 45-60 minutes. 

Ask The Expert

Ask The Expert sessions are informal, flexible and interactive. Each one is linked to a particular theme - expect the expert speaker to introduce the theme very briefly and invite questions from participants. Questions can be submitted in advance or on the day.

Support Groups

Informal, friendly and confidential, Support Groups connect professionals who may be facing similar personal situations, experiences or challenges so they can support each other.  There is no ‘expert’ in our Support Groups, each group is facilitated by a WorkLife Central team member.
