Description:

Joint event with BCS Hampshire Branch and Southampton Solent University.

Mobile working has become part of our modern working culture today and is growing, this is an independent talk of the mobile practice in business and it will consider the following:

  • Mobile working introduction
  • Working culture change
  • Technology available
  • Benefits to business
  • Benefits to professionals
  • Security issues
  • Future trends

There is a lot of support from suppliers to enable the mobile worker, from smart phone, laptops and mobile storage to cloud services. The change has allowed large businesses to scale down and SMEs to scale up, and is a real asset to the modern independent consultant.

This will be useful to students and professional alike, and it focuses on the mobile office generally.

There will be time for questions or discussion.
