Webinar and Discussion Forum
Schedule and Downloads
We host a series of regular webinars and open discussions, for school health service providers, commissioners and other interested groups. They are open to all; new contacts, existing customers and software users. We also host webinars for senior management at corporate, government and healthcare organisations, specifically for workforce planning in relation to COVID-19.
Our audience members are generally busy people with demanding jobs, so we’ve found it impractical to restrict these webinars to single dates or times. So, rather than large group webinars, we offer multiple dates and times. Hopefully we can satisfy all schedules that way. This also has the advantage of keeping audience size lower, often enabling group discussion to take place, rather than just us talking to you.
Unless otherwise stated, expect webinars to last around 30 minutes.
Where it’s still possible to join a forthcoming webinar, a button is provided below. That will take you to another page, showing all available dates and times, where you can select your preferred option.
Where not, please either download presentation content or contact us to arrange an individual, online presentation or ask for more information.
Further Webinars will be published soon, for April to June, 2021
