The Evening....
A small group of around 12 persons allows for an informal, interactive and informative evening with plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions. There will be talks, PowerPoint presentations, videos and where applicable a tour of the factory and handling opportunities. Lecture notes will be provided. An excellent light (but satisfying!) supper is served with wine.
