Social & Networking

Given that the UK has eased once imposed lockdown restrictions which eliminated the ability to hold face-to-face meetings, we now need to familiarise ourselves with the idea of bringing meetings back into the office. Despite the ability for colleagues to meet again in person, hybrid ways of working will also remain at the core of workplaces across the world and so it is important to develop an all-inclusive approach for returning to the office so that those choosing to work from home receive the same experience.

If you’re interested in learning how to enhance the meeting experience for your colleagues, why not join us to hear from our Microsoft Teams expert, Sam O’Donnell and our Infrastructure Consultant, Shareen Akhtar. In the session our speakers will begin by providing an overview of the current Microsoft technologies that cater for hybrid working before moving on to walk you through:

– Modern ways of working
– Microsoft Teams Rooms
– The types of meeting room spaces
– Microsoft Surface Hubs
– Personal devices

With demonstrations throughout, you’ll get a first-hand view of meeting room kit and what benefits interjecting each piece brings. There will then be an opportunity to ask questions, receive advice on best approach practices, and interact with the kit itself to get a hands-on feel.

Event agenda:

17:30 – Arrival, drinks & nibbles
18:00 – Talk
19:00 – Drinks & networking
