  1. Cheryl,
    You’d have to convert eastern standard time to your time zone ( is an easy website). it is about 10 hours difference, depending on where in oz you are. However, there is an upgrade option for the virtual-conference where you can purchase the recordings of all the interviews + receive a bunch of bonus materials. sign up for details. Cheers, rob.

  2. Hi there, I would like to see where I can have the upgrade (I don’t see it) as i’ll be working or travelling from work at the time of most conferences…thanks!
