Creative Business and Career Strategies for Artists –  TRANSFER Policy

What is the reason for this policy?

From the date that you make the initial deposit or payment to attend an event, we begin planning for your attendance and incur costs accordingly, even up to twelve months before the event. Our refund policy reflects this, with the following explanations.

What is my cooling off period?

From the date of making the decision to attend an event then paying either a deposit, the ticket fee in its entirety, entering into a payment plan or applying for a finance option, you will be given the option to consider your purchase for a period of a further five (5) business working days. During this time, if you choose not to proceed you can simply notify us by email at john@johndahlsen.com We will then refund to you any monies paid without question.

I can’t go to the event I booked for – can I transfer to next year’s event?

No. All ticket sales are only valid for the actual event booked, on the date specified.

Can I send someone else in my place?

Yes, you can choose who you want to transfer your ticket to. You need to notify us via email to john@johndahlsen.com at least 30 days before the event starts. You need to provide us with this person’s full name, address, phone numbers, email address, and you must have signed and dated the letter of authority for the ownership of your ticket to be transferred to the new attendee. The new attendee must also meet any relevant pre-course criteria as applicable at least 30 days before the event starts.

You will receive written confirmation of the ticket transfer, and the new attendee will also receive written confirmation that they are now the ticket holder. Please note that a $195 administration is applicable to ticket transfers.

I have booked in to attend an event, and because I can no longer make it, I would like to attend a different event of a lesser value instead. Can I do this?

No, each event is planned and paid for based on the number of attendees and as such we have a strict policy of not transferring tickets to other events. You can transfer your ticket for someone else to attend in your place without question following the guide-lines laid out above.

What happens to my money if I don’t turn up or cannot attend?

If you don’t attend you will forfeit your money after the cooling off period, or you can transfer your ticket to someone else as above. Remember, we have already accounted for your attendance in our expenditure so it is not possible to either obtain a refund, or have the funds paid held in credit for another event.

Thank you for your understanding, we look forward to welcoming you at the event you have chosen to attend.
