This week, London hosted the 2022 CompTIA EMEA Member and Partner Conference.

The event provided attendees with an opportunity to gain insights, knowledge and best practices. MJ Shoer, CompTIA’s chief community officer, said it was “humbling and exciting” to hear stories of how CompTIA was helping people.

“We are fulfilling our mission to unlock individual and organizational potential in the tech industry, with plenty of opportunity to do more and better,” he said.

There were obvious concerns about war, inflation, and energy issues stemming from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. And finding quality candidates also remains a top concern for MSPs and channel partners alike.

“Many of the themes … at the event tie in to helping to address the global workforce issues we all face. The war and the resulting food and energy issues, along with global inflation, are real concerns, but not ones we cannot successfully navigate,” said Shoer.

“While everyone recognises these challenges, there is universal agreement not to let them alter our focus on all the good this industry does,” said Shoer.

There were launches too, including the UK Legal Playbook, to help MSPs manage the legal aspects of running their business. CompTIA also revealed the IT trade association’s new initiative, Project Agora, to encourage careers in tech.
