Q&A Live events

Our online Q&A Live sessions invite guest speakers to answer questions about PDA and specific topics live via Zoom. We are delighted to be able to offer these sessions for ‘free’ thanks to a generous grant from the Openwork Partnership. Links here are available for the live session only. The Q&As will be recorded but you will need to register separately for the recording after the event via the PDA Society training hub. Each new recording will initially be ‘free’ for a limited time but will become a ‘paid resource’ after this, so please do act quickly!

Questions can be submitted at the time of booking and/or via the Zoom chat function on the night.

It may not be possible to answer all questions depending on the numbers attending and the amount of questions asked. Also it won’t be possible to answer specific questions on personal situations within these Q&A sessions – if you require support please contact our enquiry line.

Full details and tickets for our upcoming Q&A Live events are detailed below.
