Dr. Gyl’s Courage Summit FAQs

  • 1.  What is a virtual seminar?  A virtual seminar is essentially a seminar that you can attend from the comfort and convenience of your home, office, or wherever else you can think of on your personal computer, mobile device or tablet. Think of it as attending a webinar but with the ability to engage with anyone else that is attending a conference either physically or online. We are bringing two worlds together for a shared unique experience!
  • 2.  How do I register for the virtual seminar?  When you purchased your ticket, you registered for the virtual seminar. You were emailed with a receipt and a ticket that has a unique ID that lets us know that you should be receiving additional information regarding how to attend the conference via your computer or mobile device. **YOU DO NOT NEED A TICKET TO ATTEND THE SEMINAR** You will receive an invite to the seminar before the seminar begins. This invite will give you instructions for attending the live event.
  • 3.  When will I receive instructions for attending the virtual seminar?  Dr. Gyl is working diligently to prepare for this unique experience and will send you the necessary instructions before the seminar. Make sure that the email address associated with your registration is accurate and up to date so that there is no delay in receiving our communications.
