AWRI 2014 webinar series

The AWRI’s fourth webinar series will launch in early September, with sessions continuing until mid-December. The 2014 webinar program is outlined below and can be accessed via the webinar page on the AWRI website.

Webinars are interactive online seminars where you participate from your desk using a computer with internet access. You hear the presenter’s voice, see their slides and have the opportunity to ask questions after the presentation. Presentations are made by experts in their field, with a focus on practical advice and support.

Each webinar consists of a presentation followed by a Q&A session and is held at 11:30 am Australian Central Time (Adelaide, GMT+9:30), usually on a Tuesday or Thursday. Webinars are presented free of charge.

If there’s an interesting topic that you would like to see a webinar on, please get in touch. Note that webinars from previous years are also available for viewing on demand.

Away from your computer, the AWRI roadshow team will be out and about presenting seminars and workshops across a number of regions in the next few months. To find out more, keep an eye on the AWRI events calendar.
