N-Site have developed a series of online participative workshops that are aimed to deliver deep and tailored insight ahead of critical events delivered by relevant specialists from the N-Site firms.

The workshops will typically be half a day and will be specific to the registering company and not open to others. Ahead of the workshop we will invite you to submit a briefing paper with appropriate non-disclosure arrangements in place to allow N-Site to tailor the content. There will also be the facility to arrange a follow up debrief to answer any questions that were left outstanding. The price for the workshops will be fixed depending on the subject matters covered ranging from £750 to £1,500. There are no limits on numbers of attendees from the registering company.
