Spaces are limited so we urge you to confirm your attendance by Friday 19th March.
Attendees are not obliged to ask questions but we are keen that many do. We are asking for some questions in advance to "get us started" and to ensure a range of different questions/topics are covered on the night but members will also be able to ask other questions at the event.
