Developing a Lunch and Learn

Hosting a Lunch and Learn session is a low-cost training option. It is a great way to introduce a topic or give a small demonstration on a new product or service. They are usually voluntary; thus, attendance can sometimes be an issue, but with this workshop you will be given the knowledge to work through this issue and others.
