Due to change in Venue about 30 minutes to kickstart the program, few of our registered attendees were unable to locate the new venue due to the fact that few of them were unable to received an email sent to notify them on time. Even with that, 97 students attended out of 112 that registered although few of them came around after they received the change of venue email.
