WORKSHOP: A Day in the Life of a Productive Worker

What’s it about?

The way people need and want to work continues to change and IT is under more pressure than ever before to give users flexibility and choice while delivering against security, cost and management needs. Part journey, part seminar, part demo, we’ll explain how working needs are changing and how they can be met with the Microsoft Surface Pro and the Microsoft mobility ecosystem of products.

Who’s it for?

If you’re responsible for setting your organisation’s desktop and mobility strategy (Infrastructure Manager/Architect, IT Manager/Head/Director or CIO) then this event is for you.

Why should I attend?

In this engaging and interactive event you’ll see how you can wean users off their iPads and how:

  • the Surface Pro aids mobile working and improves productivity
  • how users can setup Office anywhere and stay productive on the go
  • to use InTune and Azure to manage your team wherever they are.

As well as:

  • hearing about the changing work styles that are dictating changes to the IT service we provide
  • being able to get hands on with the latest Microsoft technology
  • quiz subject matter experts from Total and Microsoft.  

And if that’s not reason enough, you’ll get a superb free tour:

  • at Silverstone you’ll get a circuit tour taking in classic race cars as well as going behind the scenes in the pits and the new media centre   
  • at Vinopolis you’ll enjoy a fascinating tour that explains how and why wines have different characteristics followed by a mini-tasting
  • PLUS there’s a great chance of winning a Surface Pro at each venue.
