As we are unable to mingle in person this year, we will be using Remo on coffee breaks. This informal gathering is to allow for speakers and attendees to meet up and socialise if they wish.
Further details for the Remo breaks will be circulated closer to the event. Please see guidance video on how to use Remo in the meantime.
We will also be using Slack, as a way for speakers and participants to communicate during the workshop. Slack guidance can be found here
