Why you can’t afford to miss entering the TJ Awards 2018
Many entrants see nearly as many benefits in entering as winning, with a key benefit being an improvement in evaluation practices. We all believe in the value of training awards that encourage us to prove that value, both qualitative and quantitative, which in the current climate of increased budgetary pressures has to be a good thing.
