If deemed absolutely necessary, The Ideas People reserves the right to cancel an event up to seven days before the date of the event and will refund 100% of the course fee where this has been paid in full.

The Ideas People will not be held responsible for travel, accommodation, or other contingent expenses for delegates who fail to attend sessions for any reason.

Payment Terms

Unless agreed otherwise with The Ideas People, all bookings must be paid at least 14 days prior to the event taking place. Our preferred method of payment is by credit card via Eventbrite at the time of booking. If an invoice is requested you will be asked to provide a purchase order number and accounts payable contact details.

Cheques should be made payable to The Ideas People and the invoice number should be quoted on the remittance advice or the back of the cheque. The Ideas People is also able to accept BACS payments. The Ideas People will provide bank account details on request.
