Staying motivated for training is not always easy. But with good company, it is much easier! Our event’s corporate challenge is an extra push in the right direction. Indeed, it is an opportunity to get closer to your work colleagues, share your challenges and successes with people around you every day and take part in a little friendly competition between businesses in the area.
