    Hi
    I am based in Ireland
    I work with eportfolios for prof development, and would love to hear the keynotes speak – will they be streamed?

    Hi Allison, I’m interested to hear what it’s all about, not sure if it applies to me. I do training in the Master Embalmer business and also in my Photography, I do enjoy your emails and are very informative. Thanks
