    Will those be available for viewing or downloading later? (For those who can’t be in the correct time)

  6. Connie Sharpe says:

    We are interested in George Whitesides on Job Creation webinar/presentation.

    We are on Eastern Day light Savings Time so your 11:00 – 12:00 noon offering would be 9:00 – 10:00 our time correct?

    We may prefer to purchase a copy of this webinar/presentation after the fact.

    Is this possible? If so what is the cost and turn around time? Thanks, Connie

  7. Connie Sharpe says:

    oops, I think I stated the time difference incorrectly.

    11:00 – 12:00 noon your time would be 1:00 – 2:00 our time correct?
