RUNNING THIS SESSION DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Normally, AAR seminars are held in the rather lovely Penthouse over at the IPA on Belgrave Square, and we hope to be welcoming you through their doors again very soon. However, during these challenging times, when social distancing and working from home are our watchwords and with no clear indication as to when the current lockdown measures will be fully relaxed, all of our Core and Senior seminars will be delivered remotely via Zoom video conference. This enables us to continue to deliver on our commitment to providing training for our agency subscribers in a safe and convenient format.
We will be running one session only from 10am to 12.30pm on Wednesday 10 June 2020 via Zoom. If you or a colleague would like to participate, please do email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be sure to send you the conference details.
Many thanks for your flexibility and support throughout these unprecedented times.
