Online attendance

We understand it’s not always possible to take a day out of the office to attend in-person meetings. We attempt to broadcast the proceedings online, with the usual caveats that the experience is heavily dependent on the venue audio/video/internet facilities. You can register here for the Gotowebinar and join us at anytime during the day. We’ll try and monitor the feed for questions but as always, the best experience will be via being in the room. Note you don’t need to register via Eventbrite if you’re join joining us online.
