Stay Safe, Feel Safe: The number of delegates at a Smart Class is usually capped at 50 and, despite the government’s lifting of restrictions, venues selected to host a Smart Class are required to operate a ‘Covid-Secure Standards Charter’ and to remain vigilant. We ask all delegates to ensure that they are fully vaccinated or have had a negative covid test within 48 hours of the event. Bottles of hand sanitiser are included on all tables and, if you prefer to wear a face covering, we’re continuing to provide full face-visor shields which you may find more comfortable than a face mask, especially during the roundtable discussions.
