What are BIZassistBriefings?

Members tell us that they sometimes struggle to keep abreast of all the issues likely to affect their business.  BIZassistBriefings are therefore a time efficient means of getting up to speed on the current issues and changes and can help you keep a step ahead in business.

BIZassistBriefings are available via webinar, and brought to you by Ai Group experts in the relevant topic fields.

Attend the scheduled live webinars and have the opportunity to ask questions of our expert panels, or watch on demand at your convenience.
