Over the past months, we have been pleased to work with the support of NRC – IRAP and ACOA to provide activity supporting manufacturers in their pandemic recovery. Response and engagement has been significant, and our hope is that we have met our goal of providing the right support at the right time. The best part of it is, a lasting resource has been developed and is available through our website.
The scope of this activity was far reaching and varied in delivery methods from virtual webinars, workshop webinars to one on one engagements between companies and subject matter expertise. Thanks to your input we were able to determine relevant areas of challenge and work with various subject matter experts to develop and deliver value added activity.
So, what did that look like over all:
- 8 webinar presentations (4 french, 4 english)
- 12 workshop events (3 series)
- Hundreds of participants from across Canada
- 50 - ‘one on one’ in house engagements with specific Subject matter expertise
- Valued partnerships with 20+ regional Subject Matter Experts
