WELCOME TO THE TRANSFORM ZONE
Webgains Transform Series 2 gets underway from 10am Tuesday January 18th 2022
New sessions premier at 10am every Tuesday and Thursday from 18th January 2022
For the new series, we’ve decided to make Transform even more accessible.
Rather than hosting a full day of back to back sessions, we’ll be launching a series of fireside chats and panel discussions on a regular basis over the next few months.
We wanted to make Transform as flexible as possible, allowing you to dedicate a small amount of time each week to enhance your skills and transform both your career and business.
The event is set to launch with our very own COO, Ami Spencer, kicking Transform Series 2 off with an in-depth look at the changing landscape of retail, and the future of work. You can pre-register now to secure your seat for the series and be kept informed about session dates and times as they are confirmed.
Core Themes Of The Event
Transform aims to help both businesses and employees in developing their skills in order to succeed in the ever-changing business environment. There are three core elements that each session is based on that come together as part of the event.
Learn how to inspire transformation by developing a mindset for growth.
Identifying the key themes that will drive future growth and success of a business and the retail market.
Bringing together ideas and inspiration, along with learning about the power of affiliate marketing.
All episodes will premier exclusively in Webgains Academy where they can be streamed for free by our members
