Tuesday 9th September was National Techy Tea Party Day.
Techy Tea Parties were held across all EE offices to help the nation get connected.  At a Techy Tea Party EE’s digital champions will help you understand how being connected can work for you, over some tea and biscuits.

EE digital champions will answer your questions and help you build confidence in using technology. You’re also invited to bring any of your own mobiles, laptops, tablets or equipment you’d like to learn more about.  Their champions will also have kit available to show you.

EE held a Techy Tea Party session on 9th September at their offices in Paddington which was attended by around 40 guests, including carers. The day was a great success with lots of guests across the UK getting help with their individual tech queries.

The next Techy Tea Party session will be on 27 November 2014, from 10am – 12pm, at EE’s Paddington offices: The Point, 37 North Wharf Road, London, W2 1AG.

If you would like to attend please contact me; June Mascoll on: 020 89621 299 or 020 8960 3033 and I will arrange for your name to be put on the list.
