        The heading says 23 January,  and the body 23 November. I guess (and hope) the last one is a typo?

        Thanks for pointing this out, the webinar is indeed planned for the 23rd of January.

        But it still mentions 2019 instead of 2020 ;-)

        I noticed the "case from Finland" and realized I have no recollection of whether I promised to present a case in the November webinar, or is someone else presenting the Finnish case? So please can you refresh my memory because I won't be able to attend the webinar on the 23rd and I need to inform the person who will attend in my place. 

        Sorry about the hassle!
