Quarterly Members’ Meeting

11th June 2021

Our June event, via Zoom, will start at 12.45 with networking and the meeting proper at 1pm.

Topic – all things Microsoft.

The last 18 months have been extraordinary for most tech companies, and this is certainly true for Microsoft. Digital adoption curves show no signs of slowing down, and given hybrid and flexible working patterns look set to be the future, cloud and digital services will surely continue to expand. Microsoft has been at the forefront of this tech boom, but what does this mean for their customer base? What are the real challenges and questions that the Microsoft portfolio can help us address, and are we getting the best from our current Microsoft estate?

We’ll be exploring whether we’re getting the best utilisation from our Microsoft stack and the opportunities and challenges raised by changes to licensing. Trustees will host breakout sessions to discuss what you want to feed back to Microsoft, and what you need to hear from them. Finally, Ha Cole, CTO for Nonprofits UK & Western Europe will respond to our feedback and talk about the latest developments from Microsoft Philanthropies.

All this, and a chance to network with peers and colleagues means you can’t afford to miss it!
