Office Hours is 30 minutes of news, announcements, and Q+A with Susan and Chris. This month we were joined by HLW International’s Marketing & Communication Coordinator, Sarah Batchelor.
If you only have a few minutes, we recommend jumping to 11:11 for an introduction to Sarah, followed by an introduction to HLW’s knowledge management ecosystem, a deep dive into the mechanics of HLW University, and an exploration of how HLW leverages Synthesis to make HLW University more successful.
