Change of Times for 16th May 2018 Network

After considering the evaluations from the February DSL Network, we have made the decision to change the network from being held in an afternoon to a morning session.

 The next DSL network is to take place on Wednesday 16th May 2018 at Nottingham Racecourse.

Timings for the event will be;

  • From 9am for refreshments and networking
  • 9:30am prompt start for the presentations.
  • 12:30pm close of the network.

 We have built in an extra half an hour in to the session so that agenda items aren’t rushed and also for further networking if required.
