This workshop will look at the use of technology in the modern working environment to promote and enable remote working. The focus will be on the use of technologies for managing disparate project teams and working with clients, using collaborative working tools such as video conferencing, shared applications, project management tools and shared information resources.

With the current unprecedented circumstances, businesses are having to move quickly to remote working. This leads to a variety of new challenges around how to enable systems to access files and work on projects, both internally and externally.
