The Foundation IT Podcast

Hero shape

In this episode, Mike chats to Toby Skerritt, Product Manager at Nerdio and discuss the latest release of their NME product, speculate on the future of EUC. 

Toby also shares the 3 games he'd be quite happy to be stuck on a desert island with (one with power and internet connection of course) 



In this episode Mike speaks to Lisa Robinson, Managing Director of Sitrus Consulting who specialise in providing organisations with all things HR related.  A big part of Lisa's passion and focus is about staff wellbeing and creating successful, cohesive workplace teams.   

With many of us having settled into a hybrid working pattern post pandemic, we wanted to get Lisa's input on how staff and leadership within an organisation can stay connected and address concerns that arise as a result of working in a more flexible way.  We discuss mental health in the workplace, how different personality types respond to working conditions and some ways to ensure this mode of working is effective for individuals and the business.    



Pauline Toussaint and Ben Gates discuss with Dave Harries how workforces can create an environment for growth and learning through coaching in a small business. They discuss how internal and external coaching has benefited Ben and kept him on track through harder times and how we aim to support employees through health, wealth and wellbeing by expanding on different company incentives.




Foundation IT's Technology Director Toby Skerritt talks with Nerdio's CEO Vadim Vladimirskiy about the launch of Microsoft's new Windows 365 Cloud PC service and how they are changing the way they're targeting cloud-based PC services to customers and users. They look at who the service is for, provide certain use cases and a comparison to Azure Virtual Desktop. 




Toby Skerritt and Mike Starnes talk with Dave Harries about how businesses have reported plans to adopt the hybrid workplace model permanently but many are still unsure what this actually looks like in practice. From the office design to the IT and security infrastructure, they discuss what's needed to navigate through a virtual and hybrid workplace.
