What is Micro Office Huddle?
We created Micro Office Huddle to be a place for micro businesses and individuals to meet, come together, and exchange information about all things technology. By setting out to establish a community where users are able to collaborate and communicate, we were able to learn new skills and even expand our pre-existing passions.
Our weekly ‘Huddles’ are completely free and run every Tuesday from 08:30-10:00. Each week, any member of the group can volunteer to lead what we call the ‘Technology Spotlight’. This is where they can go into depth about an area of technology that excites them and showcase their knowledge. As a group, we can continue to grow and support each other with the hub of combined knowledge. It’s networking, but with a difference.
How to sign up
The best place to keep up to date with the Huddle is by joining our Facebook group. Here we post regular updates and reminders and all group members can contribute any thoughts, news, and updates. We encourage everyone to ask questions when they have a technology problem and love to hear about the new features you’ve discovered!
