Helping to make ‘work’ better in Kent

April 20, 2016

Maidstone, like many Kent towns has a daily migration problem. Thousands of commuters make the journey into London for work. This isn’t just tiring for people; it’s also not enabling the best productivity for employers.  There is a better way.

“10-15% of our resident workforce commute out of the borough every day”, says Karen Franek, Economic Development Officer for Maidstone Borough Council.   “With the new Maidstone Business Terrace we’re helping new businesses and remote workers with a best in class flexible working environment”.

I live in Headcorn,  and work in the Terrace a few days each week. Using Cisco Collaboration technologies such as WebEx and the Terraces high-speed internet connectivity, I’m able to meet with colleagues from all over the world.  It’s a winning combination.

Join us at Kent Vision Live, on 11th May. Cisco, along with one of our partners, Softcat, will be showcasing technologies that allow collaboration and advanced security regardless of where offices and employees are located, and in a way that is simple to deploy and easy to manage. Also, Richard Roberts, MD of Cisco will talk about the impact of digitalisation on Kent’s business and community. Experts will be on hand to discuss more.

I look forward to seeing you there.
