Founded in 1915 by Sir Arthur Pearson, Blind Veterans UK is the Blinded Soldiers' and Sailors' Care Committee providing free training, rehabilitation and lifelong support to the ex-Armed Forces and National Service personnel in the UK.
In October 2016, Blind Veterans implemented Convene to make their Board meetings more efficient and productive. They were looking for a digital meeting app that was quick to deploy, easy to learn, and simple to use for their Board, some of who are visually impaired.
“As soon as we completed our trial of Convene, we rolled it out and it was well-received by our Board” informed Rebecca Burges, IS Project Manager/Business Analyst at Blind Veterans UK.
Convene is a leading and award-winning digital meeting solution which can be easily configured specifically for your organisation to incorporate an easy-to-use, seamless and secure digitalised process of creating and managing Board meetings and associated meeting materials.
