The impact on ICT on work practices during the pandemic

Since March 2020 the changes to the workplace seems to be the ‘New Normal’. Is there any going back?

A free event will be held on Monday 18 January 2021 at 09:00-10:20am (GMT) and is open to anyone who is interested in finding out more about the ‘New Normal’ we are facing.
