The webinar will last around 45 minutes, then we will have 20 minutes of Q&A and hopefully some time left for broader discussion if people want to stick around longer.


If you could have your mic muted that would be a great help - and please display your name as per your Eventbrite ticket sign up. The webinar will be recorded and later published on our Vimeo channel.


There will be time at the end for questions but it's often a challenge to get through them all on a live call so please do pre-submit any that you already know you want to ask to Chris Rigby will be manning the live chat throughout the webinar and selecting the most relevant ones for this setting to be discussed at the end of the main presentation, in the Q&A session by Chris, Noel and Jon.
