GDP is on a mission to help economic promotion clients, both in government and the private sector, around the world to develop the skills that they need to be fully effective in their roles.

About GDP KnowHow

GDP Global offers a broad selection of its training courses for remote online learning access. The development team at GDP KnowHow has produced courses from high-resolution recordings of live training sessions going back several years. They provide an authentic experience of classroom based learning. Today more and more eLearning content is designed specifically for online use.

So, if you want to learn about “The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights” or ‘Investor Development and Servicing’ or ‘Trade Promotion Essentials’ to ‘Digital Marketing in Investment Promotion’ and “Marine Insurance in International Trade“– GDP KnowHow will be the right solution for you.

Why online learning is the way to go

There are many reasons for the increasing success of new forms of training. The present travel and meeting restrictions brought about by COVID-19 have severely reduced opportunities for meetings and training events. In addition, the power and universality of the internet and information technology makes it easy to learn online. This is coupled with the increasing need for specialised training for professionals of various disciplines who are working in the knowledge economy.

GDP Global’s online learning resource GDP KnowHow is an innovative solution to cover this need, at affordable cost while being globally accessible 24 hours a day – every day.

Other recognised benefits are that users are able to study at their own speed, whether at home or on the road (commuting, travelling). It is ideal for professionals working full-time. Each person can set their own study schedule, without losing time commuting to a classroom.

Imagine: you will never be late to a lecture again!
