Last Friday we held our second education roadshow for schools interested in learning about the latest ICT solutions and products. The roadshow was a great success with over 140 people in attendance.
The event, which was free to guests, was held at the American Express Community Stadium in Falmer, Brighton. It gave our company partners and us a chance to offer advice to schools and teachers in a range of areas, including hardware, wireless solutions, single-server solutions, installations, tablet devices and anti-virus software.
The roadshow had lots to offer with demonstration areas where attendees could try out products and services and break-out areas to give guests the opportunity to speak to JSPC staff and service providers in greater detail.
Sharon Girling OBE, a retired law enforcement officer and child protection advocate at the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR), was also present and spoke to guests about how to educate young people on using online facilities responsibly. She followed this up with an open question-and-answer session.
After the roadshow lunch was provided and guests had the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the stadium, which is home to the Brighton & Hove Football Team.
Our company director, James Stoner, commented: ‘The day was a great success with many schools in attendance. It is nice to be able to link up with schools and help them keep up to date with the technology out there at the moment. It is also a great way to get some of our customers to meet our partner companies face to face so they know who is working for them. Now that we have successfully held two of these events I think it is definitely on the cards to become an annual event’.
We also received lots of great feedback from those that attended, including members of staff from St John’s Primary School in Horsham, who commented: ‘The roadshow on Friday was very informative. I went with our new IT coordinator who found some of it went over his head but then the learn pads were just what he wanted to see. Thank you to everyone involved as I know these things don’t just happen. We also thought it was a great venue with loads of free parking and easy to get to.’
