Hey everyone! My name is Conor, and I’m currently a Guru working for O2. I’ve been with the company for just over a year now and I’m having the time of my life. Not only do I get to educate, train and inspire my fellow colleagues and customers, but I get to go out and about to spread a little of my technical expertise to the wider public. And this blog will follow my adventures around the U.K. as I aim to showcase just how great our O2 Guru program is.
Recently, I was privileged enough to visit and deliver and internet safety session at the Houses of Parliament in London. I was approached my counterparts at the NSPCC about potentially delivering a workshop to the staff and members of parliament. And quickly I jumped at the idea! Having lived in London for a short while, the opportunity to visit one of the country’s most prestigious landmarks was an opportunity I wasn’t about to pass up!
Needless to say, I was rather nervous about speaking in front of some of the best-spoken people in the country. But in the end my excitement won through and I arrived on the day with a spring in my step! We had a really great turnout. A fantastic mix of parents, guardians and others, who had some great questions that I was glad to answer. Everyone felt very relaxed and comfortable, which meant that we were able to have a really intimate and detailed session. Which left everyone feeling informed and educated about online safety!
All in all, the day was a huge success! Both I and my counterpart from the NSPCC spoke confidently, got our audience participating and answered any and all questions that were asked. The people who organised this event in parliament were very happy with how the workshop turned out as well, and we will hopefully be back for another great session sometime in the future!
