Dear Shirley,

this second edition is only for those of our colleagues who have missed the first life webinar last year.

However, a second, more advanced webinar on this topic is in the development stage.
There is no date for Part II yet other than that it will be hosted in 2014.

Best regards,

Thayenga

Best Regards

Shirley

Hi Myriam,

Like in other training sessions or events, those that purchase their seats earlier get an "early bird" or cheaper price, and those that purchase later or last minute, get to pay a higher price. We also apply a price increase based on the number of registrants in a course ie. the first 15 pay one price, the next 10 pay another price etc.

In this case the price has slightly increased several times since the date when it was announced to now that we are closer to the date. We always advice to secure your seat in advance if you are interested in a course. In this way you get to secure your seat, pay a lower price, and also we get to know in advance if the minimum required to run the course is reached - unfortunately, sometimes we are forced to cancel or reschedule a course if just very few express interest in advance.

Hope this answers your question.

My bests,
Helen
