In this episode I’m going to give you a rundown on the 8 Critical Drivers you need to grow as an RTO. These are: quality & compliance, financial viability, marketing & sales, systems & practices, leadership & team, training products, students & clients, industry & networking. 

There is so much to get through! But by the end of the episode you will be up to speed on the most important aspects of each, and you’ll know what to do next to make them work for you.
