"I was really nervous how to participate in a webinar, but the instructions were very clear and I got connected first time! I even managed to join in the chat room and ask my question. It was so convenient to hear an excellent speaker, live, from my own desk. Thanks for introducing me to technology that delivers" - Webinar participant, 'Approaches to Education in Museums'

Which lovely Presenters will I meet?

Shonette Bason-Wood - Shonette is strong, funny, compassionate and forthright, having had more than her fair share of life experiences, which she shares readily with poignancy, sprinkled with humour. Her past is the past!

Shonette Bason-Wood thinks and acts differently. She is a refreshing, reviving and realistic professional speaker both on and off the stage. Following on from a successful first career in education, where she was a highly successful catalyst helping children to learn in innovative ways (as well as being a published author) Shonette has inspired many of tomorrow’s leaders to make effective changes.

"My staff loved it and said it was the best course they have been on.  Everyone certainly wore their happy pants yesterday!  Thanks again for a wonderful day!!"Jonathon Cooper
