A lovely and smart group from our community participated on the 17th of Ocboter in the community workshop ‘Mobile Phones Confusing’ . With an interesting speech from the online and social media expert Nick Bowditch the participants learned about a large range of mobile phones features and how to use it from the customers’ perspective.
“Very informative, enjoyed your demostration, will tell to my friends, a lot of things to learn!” were some of the comments of the public that answered a lot of questions regarding the use of their mobile phones. Howewer, they asked for regular events like that to know more about new technologies and how to use it when they are shopping. It is a interesting challenge for our Chamber to work together with our community.
