This past summer, Microsoft asked us to drive a National Program of workshops that would center around Windows 8.

Last month, we concluded the workshops with "lots of success".

The centers that were involved:
  • Kent Lakes, NY
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Emmaus, Washington, DC
  • San Jose, CA
  • Huntington, NY
  • Costa Mesa, CA
  • Puget Sound, WA
  • Second Union Baptist, Washington DC

With the support of Que Publishing, our HQ Team created a one-hour presentation that reviewed the highlights of Windows 8 and the Surface Tablet. Microsoft provided classrooms in their stores around the country along with use of demo Surface tablets.


Folks that attended went home hands filled with prizes, books, and other gifts supplied by Microsoft, Que Publishing, and SeniorNet.



A few quotes from the Microsoft Store Leaders:


The SeniorNet Workshops were ran very well and I believe the seniors that attended the workshops enjoyed their time and didn't mind learning a little bit about the Surface and Windows 8. I believe transportation was an issue, but everyone was professional and made everything work.


I wouldn't mind doing something like this again. I can try and arrange seniors groups that I know of.

Our SeniorNet events were wonderful and we had over 50 guests attend during the two days! Ron, the presenter, was knowledgeable, personable, well-prepared, and overall amazing! We would really like to partner with SeniorNet again locally to host more workshops!


Thank you,

Kelly V.



The SeniorNet workshops went great. We have a large number of senior citizens (older adults) who already hold personal training subscriptions at our store. This was a great opportunity for us to talk to a demographic which clearly has an interest in learning about technology and specifically Windows 8.


Cara was a fantastic instructor and was a pleasure to work with. Her calm and collected demeanor was just right for our busy retail store. overall the attendees were happy and learned a lot and the event was a success.


Thank you!

Rae E.



I wanted to send a follow up e-mail as a thank you to both you and Cara for a great series of SeniorNet workshops! I have attached some pictures for the both of you.


I also wanted to know if you'd like to continue holding events here at our store with SeniorNet, it would be great to have you as one of our Partners of the Month. I have attached some information on the program.


Very best,


Carolyn B.



On behalf of Microsoft Retail stores I would like to thank SeniorNet for a successful events partnership. The curriculum was well-received by workshop participants and the instructor feedback was extremely positive. We look forward to working with SeniorNet again in the future.

Marketing Manager, Program & Events



A huge kudos for a job well done to the SeniorNet Center Leaders and our Volunteers who made this National Program Series another one for our history book.
