When it comes to keeping your business ahead of the pack, the office is now anywhere with an Internet connection. Today’s workers check their phones while waiting for the train to arrive. They tweak tomorrow’s presentation on desktop computers after dinner. They take conference calls on headphones while sipping lattes at the local cafe.

These new ways of working have become so natural, we don’t even think about it — and we have the mobile revolution to thank for that. The explosion of collaboration and productivity apps have freed us to work whenever and wherever we like.

But it's not just mobile workers who are driving this transition — IT departments are thinking about how mobility can benefit their companies too. And this is just one of the many hot-button topics businesses are debating, which is why we’re excited to announce a new series of discussions about the role of technology in your company. These live webinars — ‘Droptalks’ — will bring together IT industry leaders to discuss some of the trends, best practices, and key questions being asked in business tech today.

We hope you’ll join us for our inaugural Droptalk this Wednesday, on the role of usability in evaluating business technology. We’ll have two prominent information security experts — Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), and Karl Ma, Senior Manager of Information Security and Compliance at BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP — joining Dropbox for Business to discuss how usability in business technology can be the “secret ingredient” that helps companies operate more productively and efficiently, tips for evaluating technology solutions in a BYOD world, and much more.

Our Droptalk series kicks off this Wednesday, April 2, at 11am PT. To join us, register now!
