Gregg Latchams Tech Social: Call on me!

17 October 2017 |

The summer is sadly over, but that means one good thing: Gregg Latchams Tech Social is back! We invited the great, the good, and plain spectacular in the tech and innovation world to our offices in Queen Square to enjoy some delicious pizza, cold drinks, outstanding networking, and to hear from our mystery guest . . .

There were some familiar faces in the crowd and some new introductions made as developers, startups, and corporates mingled and exchanged ideas and opportunities to collaborate. It was clear that many of us had returned from the summer refreshed and reinvigorated, even more passionate about our ideas and determined to see them through.

Our mystery speaker was Elliot  from Blackstar Solutions, who describe themselves as your friendly, neighbourhood telecoms hero. Their focus is getting to know a company first and then suggesting solutions to their telecoms needs second, and their fresh and honest approach is certainly a nice change.

From jumping out of planes for charity to being awarded best stand at the Business Showcase South West, the Blackstar Solutions team are the perfect example of how tech doesn’t have to be boring, even when you work in a B2B environment. Elliot proved that personality can shine through the more traditional tech to spark interest and intrigue.

There are a multitude of different ways that Blackstar Solutions can improve a company’s physical communication network through multiple phone numbers, re-directing systems, and video conferencing. Their support of smaller startups with flexible plans and products was fantastic to see, and reflects our approach here at Gregg Latchams.

We welcomed over 30 attendees into our offices this month, and all attendees were able to network and gather great contacts for their digital and technology enterprises within Bristol. Gregg Latchams loves interacting with local Bristol networks, and our legal expertise proves instrumental for tech companies as they navigate ever changing laws. Keep an eye out for the details of our next Tech Social!, which will be on December 7th!
