Making Hybrid Work, Work
Getting the most out of hybrid in a challenging economy
Breakfast Briefing | Thursday 29 June | The Royal Institution, London
Hybrid work can be a complex balancing act, requiring workers and managers to navigate the benefits and challenges of both remote and office-based work.
In the current climate, senior leaders face a new challenge. The rapid growth of hybrid work, combined with the state of the global economy, has created an environment where managers and teams are often at loggerheads over the need to spend time in the office.
On top of that, the need for ever higher IT budgets to support technology refreshes and defend against new threats is adding even more pressure on the CIO.
Thank you to our attendees who joined Microsoft, Computing and special guests for a breakfast briefing event at The Royal Institution, London on 29 June, where we explored the challenges of hybrid work in a changing economy; how Windows 11 can address those challenges; and share practical advice from existing customers on rolling out the new OS. Attendees also learned more about the support Microsoft and device partners can offer in the transition to Windows 11. Following a keynote on the current and future states of hybrid working, delegates will be able to take part in two audience-led panel discussions: one dealing with the challenges of hybrid work and a Windows 11 deployment, and the other with how to make a remote, company-wide deployment work.
Attending this special event gave invaluable, practical advice on how to make your Windows 11 rollout a success, and insights into why you should be changing your OS now rather than later. Don't miss out on this opportunity to connect with your peers, gain valuable insights and learn about the latest technology to help you succeed in the new world of work.
THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED:

Keynote Synopsis – The Future of Hybrid Work
The trends impacting the workplace are dynamic and ever evolving , creating new forces that will shape the future of how we work. Flexibility with work and an increased productivity come at a cost to both the employers and employees. The pressure to be constantly on an overdrive and ride against a challenging economy is forcing CIOs to think how to “do more with less”. Microsoft has been and is committed to empowering organisations to achieve more. This means constantly innovating to meet evolving work trends. In this keynote, Carlos Picoto, CVP of Windows servicing and delivery, will share his view on the future of workplace, principles of end user compute that all CIOs should consider and their latest modern work innovation to help you “Do More with Less”
One thing is clear about the future of work: At least in the near term — and possibly for much longer — hybrid work arrangements are going to be the norm for many organisations and across industries. There are good reasons why many companies and employees are excited about this mix of in-person and remote work — and equally good reasons why many feel wary about the shift. In this panel discussion we will look at the challenges of hybrid working and OS-level changes, including culture, productivity, security and ecosystem unification.
Hybrid work poses unique challenges for IT leaders in both managing a remote and in-office workforce, and the technology connecting all of them. A successful hybrid strategy requires effective communication, technology and security – especially as companies face the move to Windows 11. This panel discussion will provide practical advice and insights from experienced professionals to help leaders navigate the challenges and build a successful hybrid work model.
