Live Twitter chat: Reinventing productivity for your business

Productivity is the buzzword on many people’s lips today. In our fast-paced world, the demand to get things done quicker and more efficiently has never been higher. And nowhere is this more relevant than in the start-up and SME space, where business owners need to be at their most productive to get operations up and running smoothly.

Following on from our Reinventing Productivity event held in Kenya last month, we invite you to take part in our Twitter party to learn more about boosting your business growth through productivity  from our panel of experts. Join us on Tuesday, 7 June 2016 at 12:00pm GMT – here’s how it works:

  1. Follow the @MicrosoftAfrica Twitter handle, which will host the Twitter party
  2. Use the hashtag #MSEmpower to engage with our expert panellists
  3. Questions will be asked at five-minute intervals. Once the five minutes are over, panellists will move to the next question. So you have five minutes to join in with your experiences, or ask a follow-up question
  4. Due to volume, not all your questions may be answered

Meet our panel of experts
