You can ask questions before the session using Slido (using #018610) and we will try to pick up as many questions as possible.

  • If someone has already asked the question you wanted to, 'like' the question rather than asking it again. This will tell us it's a common question.
  • We will try to answer as many questions as possible during the session. We will answer those we were unable to get to by updating the slido page, following the event.
  • If you are comfortable doing so, include your name when asking your question, so we can direct our answer to you personally.
