HI Gwenydd, I just followed your webinar on "getting your training right", and I loved it. It was very good. However, I have tried to join your blog but is not available. Have you deleted it?
PS: I just realised through your facebook page that you have changed it to Letraduct. So I guess I got my answericon_smile.gif
