Topics that will be covered in this webinar include:

  • Designing leadership training programmes for trainees

  • The importance of human factors as an essential skill in leadership training

  • Understand leadership behaviours important in personal development

Participants can expect to hear from renowned experts in dentistry and a panel discussion with the speakers to end the webinar.
