I’m out of the office, but you wouldn’t know it...where will you be this Friday morning?

Stay social – choosing the right tech to stay connected when you’re out of the office
New Media Breakfast presentation by Iain Murray of Principle Consulting

Iain Murray of Principle Consulting is the guest speaker at Friday’s NMB and by his own admission he’s a bit of a geek. However while some call him ‘gadget man’ he maintains that he is only interested in technology that works! He insists that everything he uses from his mobile to his tablet and all the Apps are only there if they improve his connectivity and productivity. He states, “I’m not interested in the latest bit of kit or the fastest trending App od Social network unless it specifically and categorically either makes me more efficient, speeds me up, or eliminates some wasted time”.

Iain will present a blend of technology and applications that are available today to show how they work, and why more importantly they will make you more productive. “Staying connected and being able to engage at any time from any place is the primary reason for choosing the right technology” he says, “and if you want to be relevant and engaged, then sometimes you need to be able to participate in live conversations and post the right content while you are mobile”, the presentation on Friday will empower you to do this.

This breakfast won’t sell you anything, but it will give you the right information to make good decisions about your technology and data today.


Iain Murray is the founder of Principle Consulting a Management Consultancy business specialising in Property & Facilities Management as well as all other aspects of business advice from business development to long term strategy.

Our connection with Iain came about when he attended the first New Media Breakfast, opened his laptop and appointed himself as the official ‘tweeter’ for the event.
