The booking deadline is approaching for our Further Education Briefing day, which this year falls on 19th March in London. If you haven’t registered yet, then it’s worth taking a look at the agenda, as we’ve built it to make sure that you can get lots of value from the day – whether it is learning about new products that will be covered by an existing Campus Agreement, or it is thinking about the ways that you can use  your ICT strategy to save money across your college.

Microsoft will be holding our annual Further Education Briefing on 19th March 2010 at our London offices in Victoria. The agenda for the event runs from 9:45 to 3:00 with breaks to catch up with colleagues from other colleges.

As well as getting the latest news on Microsoft’s product roadmap, there will be the opportunity to hear from other colleges and to hear how they are responding to the economic pressures that all colleges are feeling. Of course, this current academic year is full of launches of new Microsoft products, and we’ll be able to use the day to bring all of this into context – explaining the value and relative importance of some of the key new product launches still to come.

The event will be suitable for senior managers, whether or not they are involved in IT strategy on a day-to-day basis.
