Can I have a discount?

Sorry, no. 

I'm only interested in watching one of the webinars; can I buy just one recording?

No, sorry. The three session recordings are sold as a package.

What if I can't make one of the webinars?

No problem, we are recording the sessions so you can catch up at a time convenient to you.

Can I pay by invoice?

No, sorry.  There are three reasons we ask for card payment: 

  1. We like the simplicity of an automated business model.
  2. We think it's excessive to have to fill in a 10 page 'supplier request' form (which local authorities and large organisations insist on) for a £160 fee.
  3. We don't like having to chase people for money!
