Communicate your Way from Compliance to Care
Speaker: Karen Hewitt  Karen J Hewitt_Biography.pdf

With the global shift in focus from health and safety to wellbeing, organisations worldwide are looking to make their own shift from Compliance to Care.  Both are essential, but making Care a priority makes your Compliance more likely to happen, in a virtuous circle that benefits all parts of the organisation.

One option is through effective communication.
