At the moment, all our upcoming courses are being run online, as webinars. Here is how they work, and what they'll include:

  • Joining the webinar - You'll get an email with a link to register for the webinar. Then, on the day, you'll get another email with the link to the webinar 'room'.
  • During the event - In the webinar 'room' you'll be able to see the speaker(s) deliver their course, live, and you'll also be able to see their presentation. There is a chat box, where you can leave your questions for the speaker to answer during the Q&A sessions at the end of each part of the talk.
  • No technical stuff needed - You do not need to connect a microphone or a video camera for these webinars. You won't be able to see or hear other attendees. You can watch from your computer, laptop, iPad, or phone.
  • Group learning - These webinars count as group learning, because we make them interactive and you can engage with the speaker and with other attendees in the chat box.
  • Recording of the event - You will be sent a recording of the webinar after the event, which is yours to keep.

We are now running all our courses as webinars. Keep an eye out for more announcements, and check our blog out.

We have courses for both healthcare professionals and those who are generally interested in learning about health. Although our professional course content is particularly aimed at allied health professionals, anyone who is interested to learn is more than welcome to attend.

At the moment, due to Covid-19 we are only offering webinars, which you can read about in the first answer on this page.

In normal times, our weekday evening courses are informal style lectures or workshops, usually lasting 2-2.5 hours. Most courses will have one (or sometimes two) speakers who will lead the course, presenting on advertised topics. We always have a networking / tea break in the middle and there will be plenty of time to ask questions at the end of the lecture.

 

All day Saturday events have a full programme of several speakers offering a variety of talks. We know all day conferences can be tiring so there will always be plenty of refreshment breaks.

 

Our events provide plenty of opportunities to interact and network with the speakers and your colleagues. The clinical content is current and relevant; accessible to a wide range of practitioners.

You can book online through our website. Just find the course you like the look of and click the ‘add to basket’ button. Alternatively, if you would like to book over the phone, give us a call on 0207 042 1899 and we would be happy to help with this.

Absolutely – just let us know by calling 0207 042 1899 or emailing develop@oryon.co.uk as soon as you can, telling us who will be attending instead of you so that we can amend our registration list and ensure your colleague’s certificate is correct.

We work with a variety of healthcare practitioners, all of whom are specialised experts in their field. The content of each course is carefully compiled, with the most relevant information to help you learn about the latest developments in diagnosis and management of generic and specific conditions.

We are always interested to find new speakers, so if you think you have a course to offer we would love to hear from you! Drop us a line at develop@oryon.co.uk or call 0207 042 1899.

For webinars, our course costs include access to to the webinar room, (via email), an extended Q&A session, and the recording of the course to take away with you afterwards.

Our course costs include admission to the course, access to the speaker's presentation (where available), light refreshments for an evening course and full refreshments on a day course & Certificate of Attendance. If we are given permission by the speaker, we also email out a digital copy of the notes before a course.

We are always looking to expand our range of courses, do get in touch if you have any tips about where you think we should expand to next.

We appreciate all feedback on course topics that you are looking to see, so do let us know if there are any courses you would like to see in the future and we shall do our best to make it happen.
