Who should attend these courses?

All of our courses are for knowledge workers. The Managing for Optimal Documents course targets those who play a managerial role in the production of documents, but will also benefit those who regularly commission managed documents, such as board members, chief executives, and political leaders and their advisers. The Strategy Essentials course is particularly helpful to executives and managers, but is beneficial for all knowledge workers.

TailoringTailoring information for audiences is what we teach and what we do. When you make a booking enquiry we will ask you about any specific goals or requirements you have. We will also ask you about timing. For example, full-day courses are often best delivered over two half-days.
Travel costsNakedize Limited is based in Auckland, New Zealand. Courses at venues located outside Auckland will usually attract travel fees, which will be negotiated as part of our response to your booking enquiry. If we are able to arrange multiple engagements for a single trip, travel fees are split (as fairly as possible) between clients.

All payments are refundable, subject to the cancellation fees detailed immediately below. The deposit for a single-course booking is NZ$1000; for multiple-seminar bookings it is 25% of the total fee.
Cancellation by youCancellations made 8-21 days prior to the course (or first course in the case of multiple-course bookings) forfeit 50% of the deposit; cancellations made within seven (7) days forfeit the entire deposit.

However, we will immediately notify clients should circumstances require us to do so. Nakedize Limited is not responsible for any loss as a result of cancellation or postponement of a course. In the case of a cancellation, any fees paid will be refunded in full unless otherwise negotiated.
