Sorry for the delayed response Diane. This session was filled early on (with the 10 participant limit within Hangouts). You can watch the recording of this conversation on the Virtually Connecting website. Thanks for your interest in Virtually Connecting.
I’m keep to follow some of the sessions happening this evening, would it be possible to get a live streaming link?
Also, I’m absolutely gutted but yesterday I wasn’t able to live stream into any of the events, are they going to be posted online for people to watch at a later date at all? That would be so incredible!
