While we can’t meet in person just now, the PMI are acutely aware of the need for regular industry updates, and a little motivation during these very difficult and challenging times.  Following on from our popular “Webinar Wednesdays” series which launched in April, we are continuing this channel into May as the restrictions continue.

For the month of May, we’ll have 3 webinars which will take place Wednesday mornings at 8am.  These webinars run from May 6th to May 20th inclusive. 

 There will be an opportunity to pose questions to the speakers in the live webinars, however if you are unable to make the live webinar, you also have the option watch at your leisure as each session is recorded.
