Last week, we launched our workplaces services with a special event in our home at Makerversity in Somerset House. In attendance were over 60 friends from the private sector working in sustainability and human resources, allies from academic institutions, think-tanks and museums, journalists and a number of people working in technology. There was real interest, and we are taking bookings now for workplace events in February and March.
Get in touch if you would like to bring us to your workplace or suggest and sponsor an event outside of your workplace.
On display were a number of demos related to the workplace services we are launching. One was standard Restart Pop-up repair clinic.
We looked at a number of devices, and helped BBC Click‘s LJ Rich repair her iPad 2 screen (watch out for this segment in February.)
We also featured a “take stuff apart” table that was a focus of attention, as attendees meticulously took apart end-of-life equipment.
Lastly we had a table where participants learned to open iPhones and change their batteries, one of the key exercises of our “Restart for Teams” team-building event.
Thanks to all of our volunteers, and a special thanks to Orsetta from Twice as New and Jenny Fremont for helping us throw a “real” party.
