Transparity invite you to join us in Manchester for a brand-new Microsoft Teams event, specifically tailored for growing SMBs. Join us for the morning or afternoon sessions…or both!

During this roundtable event, our technical expert will discuss how implementing Microsoft’s Enterprise-grade communications and collaborations tool can help you become more productive and work together more effectively. Our morning session will take you through how you can get started with Teams, its business benefits, how it makes meetings a breeze, and how to incorporate telephony to create a single platform for communications. In the afternoon you’ll get hands-on with some of the peripherals available for Teams that will enhance your experience, including Yealink meeting devices and a Microsoft Surface Hub 2.
