Webinars, Seminars and Exhibitions

Lots of our customers have attended Milestone seminars over the years; however we are conscious that it is becoming more difficult to get away from the office to attend.  That’s why we have decided to supplement our seminar programme with shorter webinars.  These will be on specific subjects and will usually be for an hour or less.  We’ve already held some and (once the teething troubles were resolved!) these have generally been well received.  I do hope you will attend one of these soon – and if you have specific topics you would like covered please let us know.
