PLA 2020 Autumn Trilogy

Loading Events


a live-stream series which will be free for members taking place on Wednesday 9, Monday 14 and Wednesday 16 December 2020.

(12.30 – 2.30 pm)

The Education & Training Committee (ETC) are proud to present a new training format to the membership – the live stream conference.  A professional studio production featuring a stellar cast of your favourite speakers, structured as a 3-part series to spare you from screen-fatigue!

The ETC hope that the Autumn Trilogy will make up to some extent for the loss of the flagship training events due to the ongoing social distancing restrictions.

And it’s free!
