I couldn't attend to this webinar, but I am very interested on what was said. Is there any possibility to watch the recorded video?

Jenni Ward

I concur. I was registered, but got pulled into another meeting. I'd love to see a recording :)

Hi Jenni and Juan - we haven't recorded this one as this is our flagship training (our IP) and available to be delivered upon request (we offered it for free during WorkPride).
