Correct timeFeb 7, 2015

Dear Maria:

I just signed up for this webinar and in the confirmation e mail I have been sent it says it is at 19:30, here:
Thu, Feb 19, 2015 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM GMT

It is probably a mistake as I see here it should be at 19:00?

Just to make sure of the timeicon_biggrin.gif

Thank you very much!

Bisan.

The training notifications are sent in GMT, which is why the email you received says that the course will begin at 18:00 GMT.

Sorry for the confusion! Hope to see you on the 19th.

Best regards,
