Am I the only one that missed this webinar because the time was wrong? (Bristol, England)Sep 11, 2013

Hi all,

I am extremely disappointed because apparently I have missed this webinar, even though I was ready at the agreed time. Has anybody else had the same problem?? I think the timezone calculator is wrong for my timezone (London, summer time).

If I am wrong, I would love to know why, I have checked the time conversion many times...

Thanks,

Liliana Marquesini
