Workshop Directory Photo

We have noticed that a lot of professional and senior professional members have not uploaded a photo to their directory entry yet.

Feedback shows that a lot of people like to see a photo before they engage with a therapist. So it is a pity to miss out on an opportunity to show your face.

In this workshop we are going to show you how to reduce the size of your photo and then upload it to your profile. You can follow along the steps from behind your own laptop screen. We do encourage you use a laptop and not a mobile phone to follow along with this workshop.

About Mieke

Mieke is on the board of directors and also manages the website. She likes to stay up to date on social media and WordPress websites.

She will guide you through the steps of uploading your photo’s and along the way she will also give some tips on what makes a good profile photo.

When and where?

Tuesday March 29th at 12:00 UK time. This event will take place through zoom. Please reserve your place here.

What do I need?

The challenges of working across borders – and how to address them

Join us for a FREE webinar with insurance expert Steve Johnson

March 2022 sees the start of ACTO’s monthly webinars series. The webinars will be free for members – and this first one is free for anyone to join.

For the first webinar, ACTO are delighted that Steve Johnson has agreed to share with us his experience as an insurance broker.

About Steve

Steve has been an insurance broker all his working life. For the last 34 years he has specialised in professional liability insurance for the psychological professions including counsellors and psychotherapists – and has been involved with online therapy from its very beginnings. Steve ran Oxygen Insurance from its launch in 2010 until he left last year to join Partners& Insurance where he has been working on a new insurance facility which will be ready for launch next month. The brand name will be… &Breathe.

About the Webinar

The questions we are asked most often at ACTO revolve around insurance issues. The session will cover the challenges of working across borders including data protection laws, financial sanctions, regulation, insurance and local infrastructure.

Steve is very happy to answer any questions you may have; however it is helpful if you could send them in to us beforehand. You can do so by leaving a comment on this post.
