Avoiding hard openings & getting better landings with John LeBlanc
Here are videos of the oversubscribed seminars, Avoiding Hard Openings and Getting Better Landings by John LeBlanc of Performance Designs on the afternoon of BPA AGM Day in Nottingham back in January. Apologies to John and also to members who had to stand or who could not get in the room - sorry, we should have scheduled it for the big theatre. We’re planning to invite John back next year, and if he accepts, it’ll be to present in the big room!
