#GuildChat for 1/25/19: Ways To Do Great Work On A Shoestring Budget

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, January 25th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on Ways to Do Great Work on a Shoestring Budget.


People can be pretty creative. This is no more true than in Learning and Development where when the budget just won’t allow for a new whiz-bang tech or the hiring of an outside contractor – we find ways to bring effective solutions to our organizations.

Whether it’s working with what you have, using a tool designed for another purpose or tapping into people on the inside of your organization for voice or video, if there’s a will, there’s a way!

Join us this week on #GuildChat as we open the floor to the community and share how we get creative with thin budgets.

Prospective questions:
