VBMA Teleseminars can be attended from anywhere, as long as you have a phone...and here's how it works!

After your purchase, you will receive an email (typically sent within one week of the seminar date) containing the speaker's notes as well as a toll free number.

5 minutes prior to the start of the seminar, you will use the provided phone number and conference code to dial in, at which time your call will automatically be muted for you.

The presenter will lecture, uninterrupted, for approximately 1 hour.  You may email questions to a provided email at any point during the lecture and they will be forwarded (again by email) to the presenter to be answered during the 1/2 hour Q & A portion, at the end of the lecture.

It's just that simple!

IMPORTANT: Teleseminars are LIVE events and a recording is NOT INCLUDED.  You have the option to purchase a recording when you sign up for a teleseminar, or you may do so separately at a later date.  The PDF/PPT files used during the presentation ARE included.
