Seminars 2022


Important notice

We now bring our seminars to you live-stream until further notice.

Please do sit back and enjoy!


Seminars will be held every Friday, where possible, commencing at 12-1:30pm and includes time for Q&A.

As a courtesy, we request that when connecting to the seminar that you mute your microphone unless you are required to speak, this would ensure that the sound from the speaker to the audience is not disrupted by feedback from your microphone – thank you!
