I was supposed to be reimbursed for the costs of travel to the physical event however, due to COVID-19 the event was held virtually therefore, there were no costs associated with this insight day.

The opportunities for networking were quite limited due to the fact that the event was held online however, the speakers were very willing to answer any questions later through e-mail.
