2. Contracts don’t have to be in Writing

Top 3 take away learnings:
1. the basic requirements of a contract before it is binding
2. keys to creating clear contracts
3. tips on how to read contracts

*PowerPoint presentation or ‘off the cuff’

1. Leadership is not an Extreme Sport

2.  Being a Mentor

Some people are natural mentors and others or not. Learn how to recognise when you have become a mentor, and what questions to ask to work out whether or not you need to formalise that relationship.
