      Crizel,you have to get a pass first. Buy your pass ASAP (SMS +639266622272) as we are releasing a very limited number only due to a small venue. Those who will be attending the seminars will get certificates of attendance. Very important that you be able to secure a seat. Very limited seats for great seminar topics. Good luck.
