To be able to ask your question or share during the webinar (using your microphone) please request "unmuting" in the chat or by "raising your hand" in Zoom Reactions and the moderator will do so at the appropriate time.

In such cases please keep questions as short and clear as possible so the speaker can complete the presentation within the planned time frame.
