Unlock the Past Queensland Roadshow 2012 - Gladstone

Unfortunately the roadshow (except Townsville) has had to be cancelled due to a critical personal situation with the family of the organisers. Those who have pre-booked will be contacted shortly for a full refund of any entry fee paid and a special offer on the products that would have been roadshow specials. If you have not pre-booked but intended to or just come on the day, you can still receive the offers if you send us your email by 25 September. An alternative similar seminar may be scheduled in the future.
