Virtual Networking

We are all having to embrace our inner ‘tech nerd’ and go virtual Since we have all gone into social isolation we are having to learn to utilise technologies that businesses have tried to embrace for decades.  Twenty years ago, video-conferencing always seemed so stilted so companies that had tried to lead the way, usually … Continue reading “Virtual Networking”

Remote Working

Remote Working  We have all been told to work from home where possible. For a lot of people that is impossible, but for those of us that can, we are going to need a way of connecting to the office.
