Please fill in the form to the right or contact Colin Dales on 07970 281349 if you would like to book one or more of the seminars listed above.

Dales are most often asked to provide CPD seminars over the lunch break, however, they can be arranged as “breakfast” or for “close-of-business” slots. Recent developments have seen Dales providing seminars to practices using remote meeting software such as Microsoft Teams or GoToMeeting. The latter form can be a useful way for smaller and more remote practices to access face-to-face RIBA CPD content from Dales.

Another way of access RIBA CPD content from Dales is to incorporate one or two of our CPD seminars as part of a factory visit, which itself can be organised to count as CPD content.

Whatever time-slot is preferred Dales are content to meet the costs of a buffet or other food, subject to the costs not exceeding £10 per head.
