Pivotal180 Newsletter December 2020

By Alison Leckie | December 12, 2020

In what has been a difficult year for everyone, we would like to help spread some positivity and good vibes for the coming year by launching our ‘GIVE ONE, GET ONE‘ campaign. Our intention with this is to provide our awesome clients and connections with the opportunity to give the gift of learning to someone they know who may be facing particularly difficult circumstances. Perhaps you know someone who lost their job, a friend or family member having difficulty getting that first job, or maybe you want to simply acknowledge someone who has given a lot of themselves over the course of this year. Whatever the case, our ‘GIVE ONE, GET ONE’ campaign will allow you to buy a Pivotal180 online course for someone else and to receive a second course for free as a way for you to pay it forward, enjoy the second course yourself or make two peoples’ day.

In this, our final newsletter for 2020, we have also included an update on the following:

  • Live streaming training – upcoming courses
  • Online courses – update on new content/materials
  • Customized training – learn about training options for your team
  • Free resources – update on new content

In other recent news, we have launched our Project Finance and Infrastructure Modeling course in October. We are already receiving fantastic feedback so reach out to discuss how this course might be beneficial for you or your team.

Finally, from everyone here at Pivotal180, thank you for all your support in 2020, we would like to wish you and your loved ones a happy festive season and look forward to connecting with you again in 2021.

Kind regards,

The Team at Pivotal180
