The 'Promotional Code' to enter when you reach the registration page is the very last word on page 25.

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the discount code before registering.
The maximum class size is typically around 20-30, depending on the venue. This helps to create a supportive learning environment with plenty of one-on-one discussion as well as facilitating energetic dialogue within the group.
There are different start and finish times across the two days. Day one will commence at 9:30 (arrival from 9:00) and will finish around 17:00. The second day lands on the same day as the Presidential Inauguration (see note). To respect those who may wish to watch this event, day two will commence at 10:00 and will finish at 16:30. To accommodate the delayed start to day two, the lunch breaks on both days will be reduced to 50 mins and, whilst there will be short breaks in the morning and afternoon sessions for day one, there will only be a formal break during the afternoon session of day two.
Delegates are required to bring a wireless-enabled laptop to use as a workspace for many of the practical exercises. You will only require access to Excel (or Google Sheets), a pdf reader (eg. Adobe Reader) and a modern browser. You will need around 3 hours of charge during each day, power points will be available for charging.
100% refunds are offered for delegate cancellations UNLESS the event is less than 7 days away OR it is over 60 days since you registered, in which case a 50% refund will be offered. If you wish to transfer your booking to another delegate, that is fine, but please inform the organiser if this situation arises. The best advice is to make sure you can definitely attend the training before booking!
In the extremely rare event that a training course has to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances you will be offered a choice of 100% refund OR the opportunity to attend an alternative workshop event. Refunds will be limited to registration costs: Visualising Data Ltd is not liable for any other costs incurred, such as travel or accommodation costs.
