We spent this weekend at the Skydive The Expo event, where, amongst other things, we delivered 15 minute briefs for the attendees.
The briefs were delivered by members of the Langar team, who shared their experiences and stories with the aim of inspiring those who listened. We recorded all of the mini briefs and you can find them all over on YouTube or embedded below. Thanks to all who visited us and we hope to see lots of you at Langar soon!
