Re the marketing, I had engagement from our team and now they’ve gone quiet. I’m just going to go ahead and advertise on LinkedIn anyway as it’s so close to the date now. Maybe we could have a quick catch up call on Tuesday or Wednesday just to run through how the session will work, for my benefit.
