Delegates may find it helpful to have watched our Introductory Webinar (23 mins) prior to attending the course: PDA Society Introductory Webinar.

This is an online session, to be delivered on Monday 4th October and Monday 11th October from 10.00am-12.30pm. Please note you must be able to attend both sessions. We recommend that you join 5-10 minutes prior to the start to ensure your technology is working correctly as we will be unable to delay the start due to the number of delegates we anticipate attending. All delegates will need access to the chat function. Please note, that to encourage discussion and protect delegate and client confidentiality, the session is not recorded and is only delivered ‘live’.

Ticket Price: £80 per delegate payable in advance (plus Eventbrite fees). If you require more than 10+ tickets please do contact us as an in-house programme may suit you better.

If you have any additional needs that may require assistance during the session, please do let us know at the time of booking, in order that we can discuss arrangements in advance. Thank you.

After booking, please remember to check your e-mail (messages may be forwarded to your spam/junk folder) for a confirmation receipt from Eventbrite sharing a link for registration. Eventbrite will also send reminders prior to the course taking place.
