In January, associates from the Digital Services by Marriott Europe team hosted a “Techy Tea Party” at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London in London, England.
The event – hosted in partnership with Age UK – was created to promote digital inclusion by helping older adults improve their digital skills, while enjoying a very “British” tea party at the hotel.
Age UK is the United Kingdom’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later-life – to the tune of 7 million people every year – by providing companionship, advice, and support for older adults who need it most.
And with the help of the Digital Services team, 10 participants received expert help in solving a range of tech-related questions (e.g., how to use social media, how to shop online, how to set up an email account, how a tablet works). Afterward, the attendees were treated to a tour of the iconic property, an afternoon tea party, and a goodie bag to take home, all graciously provided by the hotel.
What a great way to inspire people to get the most out of technology and give the community a bit of a digital boost!
