We will host a seminar once every two months. Each seminar will be 1-2 hours long, depending on the topic and identified interest from attendees, and will be recorded and shared via videoconferencing facilities at Truro Knowledge Spa and Plymouth John Bull Building.

Where possible and where attendees express interest, further meetings or workshops can be arranged with speakers on the afternoon of the seminar. Please register your interest in a further meeting or workshop on the registration form above or email Becky Whear to discuss further.
