Why an Online Conference?
Well, for one thing, we're in Ireland. And a lot of our students are not in Ireland. So an online venue to build community and explore knowledge in an accessible manner makes sense. We can bring you the wisdom and experience from our small but powerful island, to wherever you are on the planet - as long as you have WiFi!
Our Online Conference was hosted live on SUNDAY 27th DECEMBER 2020. Recordings are now available in the Curriculum, so you don't have to miss out!

"I thought I was going to miss out on the (2019) conference, but a last minute gift from my mother allowed me to attend, tho I was late for the first presentation and had to duck in and out for family matters. What a fantastic experience!!! If this is ever an option for you in the future, I'm telling ya, its soooo worth it! All the presenters were fascinating informative, and very enlightening!
Now, I dearly love and appreciate Lora and her work, but hearing from other native teachers who are experts in their own areas was ... I don't even have words. Don't miss the next one! There is something for everyone, and it may not be what you expected, but it will be absolutely grand!"
