What previous attendees enjoyed about Mary's webinar on brickwalls:

I certainly did enjoy Mary's talk.  Yet again, the webinar was clear, informative  and gave the impression of being very personal, just like Michelle Leonard's on DNA last month. Lynne

Please thank Mary Evans for an extremely interesting and helpful presentation. This is the best one I have heard regarding brick walls. Jenny
