  1. Hi,

    It is Monday August 10 at 10am Halifax,Canada time and I am trying to connect to the online conference without success. Was it postponed? Is a pre-registration necessary? Good to know for next time.



  2. George/David,
    I watched your last seminar video and really enjoy your dialogues and what you offer. I’m about three weeks into this crazy social media world and I can use any help I can get. Thanks for the education! It’s helping!
