BOOKING A PLACE AT AN EVENT OR AN ONLINE OR IN-PERSON COURSE
We arrange and run both online and in-person courses and events.

We don’t share this information in any identifiable way with the venue, and we delete it after the event. We don’t publish delegate lists for events.
We may sometimes charge a fee to attend or to sign up to an event. See below for details.
