LIVE ZOOM EVENT 11-11.45 now ended but we’re still answering your questions LIVE!

How does this live online by zoom session work?

We’ll send you a login link that you can open on your laptop, mobile smartphone, computer or tablet. You’ll be able to join Jill and Emma who will be offering advice, really useful tips and strategies grounded in a wealth of underpinning knowledge, and you will have opportunities to ask questions, share thoughts and fully take part.  If you have a little one with you this class will also work perfectly, you simply mute the microphone so you can relax and enjoy the session. You can also switch off your video camera and simply view our expert team. When the class is over the session will end and you will click your ‘end meeting’ button to leave the session.
