And one of our more popular member benefits are the free webinars we offer twice a month. The beauty of webinars is that you can get education on popular topics from a convenient location (wherever you have Internet access).
And since webinars are free for HFTP members, they are a cost efficient way to get continuing education without having to travel.
Typically, HFTP hosts webinars during work hours in the US. That’s great for members in the Western Hemisphere, but can be hard for members in other parts of the world to attend.
That’s why HFTP is starting to offer more online education geared towards specific regions, at times that are convenient for that region.
Starting this month, HFTP is hosting a series of webinars focused towards Asia. Here’s a sneak peek at the first webinar in the series:
Show Me the Money, Career and Promotion
