Live Events Calendar 2023
Training sessions and meet-ups
I’m experimenting with live events in 2023, in two different formats:
online, informal ‘meet-ups; and
short training sessions.
All subscribers are welcome to attend our 2023 events, but recordings are only for paying subscribers.
Sessions are on Thursdays or Fridays and times alternate between better-for-Australia-USA and better-for-Europe-Africa-Asia.
🍏 Informal Meet-ups (March, May, September, November) 🍏
Informal meet-ups are a chance to meet like-minded professionals in a friendly space. I will open the meet-up with a topic prompt to get us started and moderate the session so everyone gets a chance to speak. Meet-ups won’t be recorded. Duration is one hour.
Expect 5 to 20 attendees and be prepared for an intimate, interactive experience, with cameras on.

Frequently Asked Questions
