"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the summit. Thank you for asking some great questions - many of which I was thinking myself - and to all the speakers and team involved.

I am so happy that I purchased the recordings as I will definitely be re-watching."

"In her Early Years Summits, Kathy Brodie captures the best of current thinking, practice and research from those who not only have something important to contribute to our professional development but also demonstrate a passion to see children's lives improved. I have gained in my knowledge and outlook from every single item I have watched."

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access the expert interviews?

First, you need to register for the summit using any of the "Get Your FREE Ticket" buttons.

Then when the summit starts you'll be sent an email every day with a link to a web page where you can watch the summit expert interview videos online.

How long will I have access to the interviews for?

The videos will be live on the site to watch for free until the end of the summit on Sunday June 7th 2020.

If you want to watch the interviews after then you'll need to buy the recordings which will give you lifetime access.

The recordings cost £12 if you buy before the summit starts, and £30 afterwards. You'll get details of how to buy the recordings when you register for the summit.

Do I need any special equipment to watch the videos?

The summit interviews can be viewed on any modern computer, tablet or phone.

The main requirement is that you have a fast enough internet connection for the videos to play. If you can watch youtube videos from your device then you should be fine to watch the summit videos too (and they'll be much more useful for you!)

If you buy the recordings you'll get lifetime access to watch the videos and will also be able to download them. You'll need a computer with enough hard disk space if you want to download the videos.

Can I share interviews with my colleagues & friends?

We encourage you to share details of the summit with your friends and colleagues so they can register to get access themselves.

We do ask, however, that you don't share copies of the recordings you buy. Payment entitles you to a copy of the recordings for use by one person only. If you are found in violation of this in any way (including, but not restricted to, intranet) your access to the videos will be terminated immediately, without notice and without refund.

If your colleagues or friends would like a copy of the recordings they'll need to buy themselves. We've made the price of the pass low so that hopefully everyone can afford to get a copy.

Please remember, the Early Years Summit is almost entirely funded by purchases of the recordings. If people share the recordings instead of purchasing them then the summit won't be able to continue.

What if I have problems accessing the videos, my recordings or transcripts - or any other problems with the summit?

Just email us at support@kathybrodie.com and we'll get back to you straight away.
