Coronavirus covid-19 – Customer information
Virtual event book-stalls
If you have moved your event online, I would be delighted to provide a virtual book-stall. This is an easy way to provide an added dimension to your event, whether meeting or webinar style. I furnish event organisers with a 5 minute video outlining some titles relevant to their theme, and I provide a dedicated link for your event attendees to browse these titles again.

If you are already considering actual events for post covid-19 restrictions, I would love to hear from you about your future plans, even if only tentative.
