Hi Karen, webinar details are provided in a new post

Fantastic, thanks so much @Stefano . I have registered. I just wanted to check if this is correct. The calendar is set to Brisbane time which converts to 3pm in Sydney (the add to calendar download automatically did this) as it will be after daylight savings start.

Hi, it will be generic enough to apply at any level of government and in any state, and alos to the private sector where most of the presenters are originally from

Thanks so much for arranging this, very helpful. I had to leave the webinar a bit early and wondering if the recording or notes will be sent to participants? Cheers

yes, we will have a recording available soon, a Q&A fact sheet as well as copies of the presentations
