Feedback from our Livestream audience:
‘The best COVID-19 webinar / resource I’ve accessed in the last few weeks (and there have been plenty). Excellent practical tips and I’d love to forward it to my colleagues for their reference.’
‘This was the best COVID 19 update to date that I have heard. Pitched directly at people in my function – in-house legal and at a level that was not basic – but also practical. Very impressed.’
‘Briefing was delivered in a prompt and courteous manner by presenters who obviously know their topic and have had actual experience in dealing with these issues with their clients. Use of practical and real life examples was excellent.’
‘It was timely and the content of the webinar was not only relevant and of benefit to me, in my role, but presented in a manner that was easy to understand. Not an easy feat given the complexity of the matters discussed.’
