Global Excel Summit becomes CPD-accredited once again

Global Excel Summit becomes CPD-accredited once again

For the second year running, the Global Excel Summit 2023 has been approved by the CPD Standards Office as a CPD-accredited event.

What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) tracks and documents the skills, knowledge, and experience you accumulate from a variety of activities.

These include attending events and undertaking training courses, whether in-person or virtual.

You gain a certain number of CPD points for each one, depending on how many have been assigned. This is based on the topic, difficulty, and how specialised it is.

Quality assured

CPD accreditation is the ultimate seal of approval for the Global Excel Summit 2023. 

It’s proof that it’s a fit and proper event, having undergone a rigorous assessment process to ensure it meets all the criteria before being independently verified. This ensures it is not simply a blind tickbox exercise.

Check out our Agenda to find the full session schedule.
