Apple consultants look to give back amid the COVID-19 pandemic

The first Futureproof IT summit, an event put on by Alectrona, Abelloni, Technolutionary and the MacAdmins Podcast, was announced early last month. And Apple consultants are looking to give back amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Futureproof IT, scheduled for a May 18-20, is “a first of its kind virtual summit, bringing together global tech leadership to address the operational, security, and financial impact of COVID-19”, meant for IT professionals and small businesses owners around the world. 

All proceeds from Futureproof IT 2020 are being donated to Heart to Heart International to support their humanitarian work distributing urgently needed equipment and medication.

“I think this event is going to be a game-changer. The world has changed so much in light of COVID-19, and with it, so much uncertainty has been introduced, but Futureproof IT has the capacity to revolutionize our perspective,” says Jon Brown, owner of Grove Technologies, a Mac MSP in Washington D.C. (A Mac-MSP is a remote software management service that caters to companies who use Apple computers.)

Attendees can participate in sessions addressing issues such as planning ahead for business continuity in a pandemic, best IT practices for rapidly shifting to virtual offices, adopting a Zero-Trust Model for secure application access, onboarding & offboarding remote employees, collaborating with internal & external teams effectively, budget strategies for navigating changing IT needs. Sponsors of the event include Grove Technologies, Autonomy CoOp, Simple Thread & The New IT. Tickets and sponsorship opportunity information can be found at
