Let’s face it, ‘webinars’ can be boring––seemingly endless slideshows on topics you don’t care about, presented in an non-engaging way. Well, at Skycomp we’ve decided to take on the challenge of how to make them interesting and to use technology an advantage. We are hosting a series of virtual fireside chats with clients, friends, and connections of ours. If you aren’t familiar with with Skycomp, we work with businesses and organizations all over the Niagara Region and beyond. This fireside chat series will answer some important questions about IT, how to leverage technology to help your business grow and introduce you to some cool people across industries.
