You are Here > Training & Workshops

Proactive actions and solutions like training and workshops can be the differentiator between a successful company, practicing good corporate governance and a company involved in with issues such as:

•  Security breaches;

•  Loss of data;

•  Unauthorised commercial activities;

•  Sexual harassment;

•  Unsuccessful disciplinary hearings;

•  Unsuccessful criminal and civil actions, and other similar issues.

At van Gaalen Attorneys the focus is not just to provide expert advice on topics in isolation, but to form synergies between disciplines, e.g. how to effectively implement an eCommunication policy in accordance with the Labour Relations Act, and as a result provide our clients with the best possible solutions.

Why pay thousands of Rands per delegate for a conference if you can have workshop at your company's own premised for a quarter of the price. 20 People can attend for the price of 5 delegates at a typical conference.
