Our xCHANGE webinars are an exclusive opportunity for our members to meet online and to exchange examples of the entrepreneurial mindset, share ideas and questions, and determine actions to bring about change.   


What makes our xCHANGE series different to most webinars is the emphasis on interaction, the sharing of views and discussion. We feature summaries of the webinars and video clips in our regular eZINE and on the SHINE Project website.
