Is there going to be a recording?Dec 1, 2015

Hi Luciana,
I would like to know if this webinar will be recorded and if we can have access to that recording after the training. I am very interested in this topic, but unfortunately the time of the webinar does not work for me. I would like to sign up and have the option to watch it later.
Thanks,
Izabela
