    1. Hi Merenia, and thanks for your question. Whilst we’d love to have recordings to share after the event, there are technical questions which make doing this somewhat challenging, and we’ve regretfully had to decide to keep it to a live event. Apologies for this!


  2. Thank you for organising such a stimulating array of presentations. I would have loved to have been able to attend the the weekend of events as well but travel not possible at present, so the online day was a brilliant substitute.
