Accessing this session Sep 30, 2014

Hi Drew,

I've noted your reply to Ariene, but I still can't seem to find a way to actually access this session - is there a particular page I need to go to?

Kind regards,
Vanessa

Trying to access without success... Sep 30, 2014

Hi Drew, I am trying to listen to the podcast, but it is blocking at 00:06 and there is no sound..I know it's not a problem with software or anything else to do with my computer as I have already listened to one session (live) this morning. Any advice would be appreciated as I would really like to listen to this session.

Can't find session player Oct 1, 2014

Hi,

I'm on the session page but can't see a player anywhere. I did sign up for the conference. Is it available? The only on-demand session I can access is the introduction.

Thanks

There is a "low bandwidth" embedded player at the bottom of the page, scroll down and play the video. Thanks
