Wake Up and Smell the Coffee!

Blogging, for me, requires concentration and a busy office is not the best place for me to concentrate.

For me the ideal condition to work is in relative peace, with a strong coffee and that’s just what I am doing now but not at my desk. I am working, online with access to emails from colleagues and access to all the tools I need, in the quiet corner of the FCO, with a view of Durbar Court.

Yesterday, I was issued with a secure FCO Services laptop. I am now able to safely connect to WiFi (on the train, at home etc.) keeping in contact with office colleagues wherever I am, even by Video (Lync) , securely, as well as having access to the Office tools I so frequently use (Email etc.). What’s more its faster in connecting to the FCO Services network than my previous machine – saving up to ten minutes in log on time.

That’s the problem with an expresso. So quick to finish. Well I am now going back to the buzz of the office to dock in there. I’ll try this remotely from home tomorrow.

See for yourself how FCO Services can enable you to work more flexibly without compromising on security. Visit us at the show. Perhaps we could show you over a coffee!! Contact us on 01908 515789 to arrange your personal demonstration or visit www.fcoservices.gov.uk.
