Introducing Review365 Hable is about to enter our 4th year. The first 3 years have been a tremendous journey, working with almost 100 customers – from the smallest school to the Houses of Parliament – and now its time for us to take the next step.
Hable are 1 of only 3 Microsoft partners in the world who are qualified to deliver a 2-day Microsoft workshop for large-scale pupil device projects, called the Project Management Resource Kit (PMRK).

On Thursday we hosted the first Hable Cloud Club in London. The idea for the club came about when we met a group of customers over lunch last Christmas – the Houses of Parliament, Save the Children and the University of London.

Hi Everyone This is a short post to launch our new film: “Working Smarter“, made by the brilliant Dean Thrussell of Love Film Since starting Hable we’ve never really spent money on advertising, but wanted to do something to show people the output of our work.
For a keynote at a developers’ conference Apple announced a surprising amount of new hardware at WWDC last Monday. As well as “Kaby Lake” processors in the MacBook Pro, iMac, and MacBook ranges there was Apple’s take on the Amazon-Echo-crossed-with-Sonos-speaker, the HomePod. And there was the expensive, beautiful, wallet-shredding, VR capable, inaffordable iMac Pro thatRead more
Should we be focusing on learning how to “speak machine” or on building machines that can understand us better?

As part of Hable’s contract to oversee the institution-wide adoption of Office 365 we’ve been walking the floors of the University of Arts London.

Like most parents, I always wonder what life will be like for my kids when they grow up. I try to get them thinking about the things they’re good at and relate those things to jobs or careers which I think they would be happy doing. We talk about why, as much as I’d loveRead more

I just bought my first MacBook. I know, I know, the ex-Microsoft guy ditches all loyalty after leaving – but it’s not like that. This was strictly for research purposes. Honest, guv. We have a customer who is roughly 70% Mac and I needed to be able to train their staff on Office 365 and deliver presentationsRead more
I’ve just been reminded about how tough the battle between IT and the Business can be. I was presenting to a group of customers at a University and in the room were representatives from a few different departments. The meeting had been organised by IT and they had invited some of their business stakeholders
I was over in Dubai last week with Mark Steed (aka @indepdenthead) and he gave me and a member of his SLT some great advice on leadership. Being a football fan, it really rang true – even though I was a little embarrassed not to know who Carols Alberto was. His advice was this: TheRead more

It’s been 5 months now since we started Hable. As you may have spotted, I’ve broken the first promise I made to myself when planning our digital strategy – which was “blog often”. Its hard when you’re trying to fit everything in, hard when you are busy DOING the stuff you need to GET DONERead more
It’s been almost a year since Microsoft announced that they were finally bringing Office to the iPad. I don’t mean Office web-apps via a browser. I don’t mean those Virtual Desktop sessions which put your windows desktop onto an iPad and are impossible to license.
