Catherine Long, Bursary Secretary at St. Dunstan’s talked to us about how the school’s governors have benefited from using Convene, and how Convene has fitted into their secure digital environment.
"I would recommend Convene, not only for its ease of use but also because it is contemporary. You need to move with the times and with today’s technology, which is there to give you back time and save money. I think it’s a necessity."

Initially, a BoardPad customer, Loughborough College made the switch to Convene. We spoke to Ian Jones, Clerk to the Corporation, to find out how Convene addressed their needs and delivered the solutions they needed.
"The transition to Convene was a straight forward and seamless process... Convene has been received with an almost universal satisfaction from our board members. We have found the whole Convene experience incredibly positive, and none of us have found any issues or areas that would require improvement."

Sophie Black, Assistant Registrar & Secretary to the Council's Office, shares the intuitive functionality and scalability of Convene.
"Since Convene was initially rolled out within our Institutional Governance division, we have been involved in what can best be described as an extended implementation... We can definitely see the potential to make Convene available to the whole university and are looking forward to extending it out and to encourage increased collaboration. This will include the ability to log in remotely and to harness more flexibility around remote working in general."

Dr. Andrew Young, COO from London's School of Economics (LSE), on his experience of working with Convene.
"My colleagues were using different combinations of tools to work paperless. Initially, I had tried and failed. But now, using Convene I have the vast majority of my work on my device, whether it's council meetings or not. From a one-to-one catch up with a director to a department conference, I am working from the Convene platform entirely.
I think many of us at LSE are now moving towards being more agile in the way that we work. In that respect, Convene is not only improving the way we deal with the paperwork, but it’s actually improving the way we work. I am now more readily able to work from home or from the railway station than I was before."
