Who we are
Welcome to T4EC - an innovative technology-in-education project, connecting local business communities to their local schools and educational establishments.
Designed to bridge the digital divide between ICT related industries and technology learning in education, the 40 one-day events will become the ‘must see’ shows for head teachers, bursars/business managers, ICT coordinators, IT managers, lecturers, educators, governors, administrators and tutors looking for a technology-in-education ‘one stop shop’.
As a professional team of technology specialists, event organisers, communication and PR managers and marketers, T4EC has been delivering informational events committed to providing invaluable resources and tools to universities, colleges, academies, secondary and primary schools since 2012.
T4EC will see an all new team deliver an exciting new series of ‘must see’ events bringing schools and local business communities closer together, bridging the ICT and IT divide.
In this fiercely competitive technological age, the digital divide between education and industry is wider than ever.
T4EC was created because we believe that schools and educational establishments deserve state of the art, effective technology information and provision for their classroom and curriculum needs; to enhance the student’s learning environment and to help prepare their leap from classroom to career.
With more than 5,000 educational establishments in the London region alone, we wanted to provide a strategically located series of technology focused events, where local businesses and professional service providers could engage with local educators in a relaxed and informal B2B environment; bringing schools and the local business communities closer together, in a mutually beneficial professional forum to share, inform, inspire and learn from each other.
How will the Class of 2050 look?
We believe that T4EC will help bring the worlds of technology and education together, enhancing the understanding, application and implication for today’s students, in tomorrow’s world.

Andrianne PhillipouPR Manager
Andrianne honed her pr/communication skills under numerous media spotlights; from comedy talent booker at Jongleurs Comedy Club to television researcher and producer, her name has graced some of the UK’s most popular TV shows: WOGAN, The Crystal Maze, TV-am, Surprise Chefs, the British Comedy Awards. During this ground-breaking time she was privileged to work with some of the most influential and iconic names in light entertainment. A career change into the world of corporate communications was a natural transition after the birth of her two sons. More recently a lifestyle change took Andrianne to Limassol and the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. During her 9 years there she consolidated her freelance PR career by ‘fixing’ overseas TV shoots for international production teams, coordinating English learning cultural tour packages for foreign students, running national accounts for a full service advertising agency and for 4 years, until her return to the UK in 2013, writing for the island’s biggest selling English paper, the Cyprus Weekly, as Limassol correspondent. Now, firmly settled back ‘home’, Andrianne is delighted to unleash her creativity and passion for PR on T4EC and this dynamic project.
