Dear Link2ICT, we need to talk........(NM meeting)
I contacted Andy Mackey (Director of Link2ICT) to give a bit of feedback about the conference and bring up a few things i'd been mulling over.
My main point was i felt they were missing quite a big audience...us! I got a very positive reply and I genuinely do think they are working on this and wish to engage with us like they they used to in the past.
Turns out my e-mail was also very well timed. Their head of operations, Amanda, contacted me shortly afterwards to let me know they are in the process of finalising a Network Managers/IT Support meeting which is to be held on the 7th of May (venue and full details TBC, schools will be receiving info soon).
Items on the agenda will be Firewall, Mail filtering, Office 365 and Zimbra.
They're planning on it being more of a 'round table' event instead of a presentation driven one, so being able to discuss and exchange views, and listen to suggestions.
So there we go, they're giving us the opportunity to have our say. I'm pretty sure you've noticed how active this part of the forum is recently (and some daft posts imho) so maybe this is what we need.
What do ya think?
