  • Sorry I missed this, sounds fascinating. Any chance this will be repeated?

  • It was indeed a fascinating talk! We have had speakers return to give second and third presentations so it is not impossible for this talk to be repeated in some form but having said that, it is not currently scheduled to be repeated.
    I would recommend subscribing to the calendar and that way you will be notified if it is repeated. Failing that, check back periodically or use the search tools to find anything related to Mitch Lomax.
