For those who missed our September webinars, we now have recordings and slide decks available for your viewing pleasure!
We've attached them to the blog post for each webinar, so just choose the topic you're interested in:

They will be presented by the partners at Raised Eyebrow, Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears.
