Comments received from attendees of our recent
Refuel National Seminar Series

“I came thinking I knew 60% and left knowing I only knew 10% but having learnt 90% from this exceptional seminar.”

“I found that my existing knowledge was inaccurate and could lead to the problems I believed I was eradicating. The website and joint AIA/ABCB document will now be used as a guide in the office.”

“I would like to thank the Institute and Andy for delivering this seminar as it is extremely difficult for remote practices such as mine to gain access to the refuel sessions.”

“Most informative National Seminar Series event I’ve ever attended.”
