#BrewEdEYOnline 1 - Page Header

On Saturday 16th May 2020, we hosted our first #BrewEdEY and due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ban against gatherings, we hosted this free event online, with over 90 delegates registering to attend.

There were many more that were not able to attend due to the time or not being able to book a space, so we are sharing the recordings of the presentations and the subsequent Q & A sessions so that they can be accessed freely.  

Once again, we would like to extend our thanks to David, Sarah, James, Helen and Bridgit for giving up their time to present for us and also to all of those who attended and contributed; we could not do this without you.
