Associations & Organisations
Plans are underway to launch a membership-based organisation in the near future focussed on helping individuals at all levels to network globally both online and face to face. Key objectives of the organisation will be to ensure members have improved access to information and have the ability share ideas to improve knowledge, health and well-being.
