  • We recommend that you watch the webinar using a PC, tablet or laptop rather than a phone.
  • The meeting link on the event page is unique – it is the only link which will give you access to this webinar. Please do not copy this link to use in the future as this may cause problems for you. In some cases you may be sent the link rather than it appearing on the event details page. 
  • You will need your speakers turned on or you can use a headset/earphones and have a good internet connection.
  • Accessing via PC/laptop/mac: if you do not have app installed you will usually be directed to your default web browser. You may be required to download the app to take part.

If accessing via PC/laptop you may also want to try using a different browser.
