Q. When was this recorded?

HR Secrets was recorded in November 2023.  The seminar was presented live to audiences in 7 cities around the UK, and this recorded version was filmed in a studio whilst about 200 people watched via livestream.

Q. What do I get if I purchase this?

You get lifelong access to four videos, totalling about 2.5 hours in length (the content is described above).  As soon as you order, we will send you login details by email so you can start watching immediately.  You can also download .pdf workbook and copies of the slides.

Q. How much does it cost to buy the videos?

£125+VAT.  That is the same fee delegates paid to watch the livestream in November 2023, and includes the workbook and the slides.

Q. How big is the Workbook?

It's 99 pages long, of which about 60 pages are the main Workbook content, and the rest is bonus and other materials.

Q. I'd rather not pay by card - can I pay by invoice?

No.  Sorry.  This is an automated system and we just don't have the time to chase people for non-payment of invoices.

Q. Are meals provided?

Obviously not - you're buying online recordings!!

Q. Is there any small-print?

Afraid so. Here it is:-

Daniel Barnett will be giving an overview of law and procedure during the seminar. In order to fit it into the allocated time, there will be some generalisations. You should treat the content of the seminar as general guidance but not legal advice tailored to fit the needs of your situation. Any liability for negligence, breach of contract or anything else arising from the content of the seminar is limited to twice the fee you paid to attend.
