    Thanks for Joining this Webinar :-)Feb 12, 2013

    Dear Attendees,

    Thanks for joining the Webinar today. You'll be able to download the slides from the platform very soon.

    Part one of the webinar was very theoretical and some of you might need to study in more details. This is why I'll be adding PDF files explaining further what's been discussed today.

    Also, I shall upload some videos soon onto the platform to complement the demo. Should you discuss any topic in particular or should you need more detailed info or guidance in your practice, please feel free to post your queries in this forum.

    Finally, after you start using XBench, you might have more questions and you might feel you need more explanations on any part of today's content. Should that be the case, please feel free to post here or get in touch via my Profile.

    Thank you.
