Masterclass FAQ

Note on COVID-19 - Please read the update here.


Online masterclasses are offered via the Zoom video conferencing platform. Lead by an expert host, the sessions are highly interactive supporting full group, break out groups and 1:1, all within the platform.

Most of our online masterclasses are made up of several modules. You can sign up individual modules. Attending all online modules is the equivalent of completing an in-person masterclass.

You'll need:

  • A computer with with good video camera and microphone.
  • A Zoom account setup prior to the session.

You will receive detailed instructions 3-day prior to the session. Check-in starts 10 minutes before the masterclass. 

Recording & Privacy

  • Each masterclass includes shared course notes that can be edited and commented on in real time by attendees. 
  • To respect the privacy of our attendees and hosts, we do not consent to screenshotting or recording of the Zoom chat window.


To support our global attendees we will provide masterclasses in three broad timezones: US, Europe and East Asia.You are welcome to join any session remotely—please check the timezone for each session.


Venue location

The venue address will be shared with attendees by email closer to the event date. If you don’t hear from us by 2 weeks prior to the event, please contact us. 

On the day

In-person masterclass runs from 9 am to 5 pm with a lunch break.

Please bring your laptop to the masterclass, unless otherwise specified.

We typically arrange lunch for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Beyond that, it is often difficult for us to accommodate individual dietary requests. If you think this is an issue, please make your own plans. We value diversity and do our best to accommodate, but our choices are dependent on the caterer’s availability and timing. 


Purchasing Tickets

To buy a ticket, you only need to fill out billing information. Attendee details can be added right after purchasing the ticket, or you can come back at any time to complete your tickets.

Registration - Assigning Your Tickets

Once you completed the purchase, the next step is to fill out the attendee's details. After placing an order, you will receive an email which you can add attendee’s detail or reassign your ticket.

We will send any event updates to the attendee’s email address registered for the ticket. If the purchaser and the attendee are different, be sure to assign your ticket(s) to the right attendee, and have their email address registered. You can do so at any time, but it’s best to complete the registration at your earliest, so nobody misses any emails from us. 

In case we need to reach you out on the day of the event, please register the email address that is accessible anytime (i.e. not generic corporate emails).

Transferring Tickets

You can re-assign or transfer your ticket at any time using the order confirmation email above. If you transfer your ticket, please make sure the new attendee has all the information necessary to attend the event.

You can pay tickets by credit card or invoice. The invoice option is currently available for payments over $3,000. Please contact us if you need any help or other arrangements.

  • Once your order is placed, you will see the View Invoice button. Please download your invoice and pay using the provided instructions.
