Love Your iPad, 26th March

Roehampton Club Member Chris Bray has run Love Your iPad sessions for a number of years and last Friday over 65 Members joined his latest workshop to learn more about the complexities of the world of Apple.

Here’s what you had to say:

Well structured, opportunity to ask questions, documentation provided after the course

The manner in which it was conducted was excellent and as I am an iPad novice it just what I needed. It was fun, interesting and well balanced.

There is always something new to learn!
