How will it work?

Your camera or microphone audio will not be shared as an attendee. You may be asked to test your camera and mic if you log on with a computer, but don’t worry. We won’t switch these on (unless specified prior to the event).

You can communicate with the event’s presenter(s) and moderator(s), as well as other attendees, through a chatbox. You'll also be able to interact with polls and handouts which we may send throughout the session.

What if something goes wrong?

If your internet browser crashes during the sessions, click the joining link you received in your confirmation emails. This will enable you to return to the session.

If you have any issues which impact your experience during the event, please get in touch and we’ll endeavour to resolve this. If you have any questions about accessing one of our online events, please contact our Marketing & Communications Officer ([email protected]).
