- 22 October 2019

This week Philippe Gaudreau, CEO and founder of SOLABS, is joined by return guest Gretchen Dixson, the Senior Product Specialist and Head Trainer at SOLABS. Today, they’re discussing the training section and some of the most common use cases she has encountered while working with clients in terms of configuring and helping improving practices in that area.
