In order to deliver improved services to the public, Local Governments are revolutionising how employees collaborate and are redefining teamwork with digital innovations that deliver greater efficiencies. With cities and counties facing the same workplace collaboration issues as other organisations (with the added challenge of remaining compliant with rigorous privacy, security and other regulations enforced by the central Government), this transformation is even more remarkable. However, how exactly can this transformation be achieved and more importantly regulated?

Microsoft Teams is radically improving teamwork by providing a sleek platform which integrates popular Office 365 apps with audio, web, video conferencing features for seamless and secure collaboration. In this exclusive workshop, GCI and Microsoft will explain how Teams is helping Public Sector bodies improve efficiencies and drive collaboration more securely than ever before to support the Public Sector’s digital transformation strategies. We’ll also explore both the technical and user adoption challenges of Teams and how you can overcome them, as well as giving you a deep insight into what tools and applications can complement the transition to greater collaboration. 

What you get at our exclusive event:

  • Expert advice from Microsoft’s leading Modern Workplace Specialist, Stuart Leddy
  • Real examples of how organisations from Education, Local Government and Not-for-Profit associations have achieved real digital transformation using Microsoft technologies
  • Knowledge on how to prepare your organisation for Teams adoption to ensure compliance, security and efficiency
