Focused Learning Labs

Focused Learning Labs

If you’ve got 60 minutes, we’ve got a lesson to share. During a one-hour learning lab, an experienced Seidman faculty member will share a focused, relevant lesson on a timely topic. The goal is to share applicable learning nuggets to help you and your business thrive (or at least get through the week). After a short lesson, you’ll have time to engage in discussion with other attendees facilitated by your Seidman faculty.

Attendance is capped at 30 people so don’t delay in signing up! And, hey, it’s free so why wait.

Check back later to learn more about future Learning Lab series.
