Purposeful Innovation Network Seminar –
Intelligent Digital Workplace”

Date of seminar – Thursday 19th March 2020
Surrey Technology Research Centre
9.30am-1pm Intelligent Digital Workplace Seminar (£25 per person)
1.30pm -4pm Exhibitor Booths & Speed Business Networkings

Come join us to explore and learn effective approaches to unify the power of your workplace technologies and surface the right knowledge to the right people at the right time. For small and medium businesses, having a remote workforce can make a lot of sense. You’ll widen your talent pool as you’ll be able to hire for skills over proximity. You’ll save money on paying for office space and all the trimmings.

How can you easily ensure your remote workforce has the same dynamic and trust as an in-house team would? We will be sharing the most effective practice in making use of technology to build trust, connections, and empower your workforce to work remotely from their home office. We also understand the pressures and challenges when your business is continuing to grow. You’ve hired more staff but as the orders or sales have increased so has the requirement to manage the following:

  • Formalise and automate business processes

  • Investment in knowledge management systems, CRM & document storage

  • Data Management reports for departments

  • Recruiting, inducting, on-boarding & management of staff teams

  • Contracting and processing orders/sales

  • Legal requirements to comply with managing personal data of customers

This seminar is a forum to listen and share questions with experienced experts who will share examples of effective business practice when planning and managing an ‘Intelligent Digital Workplace.’ While encouraging and challenging you to reflect on your businesses innovation and consider if you can claim back money from the Government. 

Intelligent Digital Workplace Seminar 9:30am-01:00pm



The target audience for the morning seminar is businesses with more than 5 staff members. If you are a small business owner, we cannot offer added value and do not wish to waste your time, however the Speed Business Networking maybe helpful to connect with new leads/vendors.

A fantastic way to grow your network and bring your business new opportunities. 

How it works: a meeting format designed to accelerate business contacts. Delegates greet each other in a series of brief exchanges during a set period of time. During an interaction, delegates share their professional backgrounds and business goals. Networkers are generally seeking exposure to new markets and/or expanding their pool of vendors.  

Top tips to get the most of Speed Networking:  

  • Prepare yourself by setting goals and outcomes that allow you to deliver the business message that you want to communicate
     know what you want to convey and prioritize that heavily.
  • Keep it simple and respect the other person. Introduce yourself and exchange business cards before you begin
    and give the other person the chance to start unless he/she prefers not to.
  • Business cards are essential; either traditional physical cards or have set up business card on your mobile to forward via text/email.
