On 16th March 2013 we were very proud to offer two webinars prior to the conference. Bethany Cagnol facilitated the webinars 'How to get the most out of the conference' by Susan Barduhn and 'How to give a presentation at an international conference' by Catherine Walter  which proved to be very popular. If you missed them they are still available here, and the presentations also took place at conference as part of our 'How to ..' series.
