About the skill-share: While we can't hold our usual Regional Group events and visits, we are keeping our wondeful network of members connected by holding virtual skill-share sessions. Run by members for members, these short and informal online sessions are a great way to find out more about the expertise and experience of your fellow members. We are really grateful to all the members who have volunteered to lead a session so far. If you are interested in leading a session please get in touch with our membership team: membership[at]

These sessions are only available to SPAB members, so you will need to log in to the website in order to register. Please get in touch if you don't have a log in set up yet.

IT requirements: Please note that this is an online session and will be held via a webinar platform called CrowdCast. You will be sent instructions on how to join the session when you book. To participate, all you need is an internet connection, and a laptop, computer or phone with the ability to play video and audio. On android mobiles/tablets, sessions can be accessed via either Chrome for Android or Firefox for Android. Apple mobile/tablet users will need to download the CrowdCast app.

Accessibility: please contact the SPAB before booking to discuss any special access requirements.
