This event is for the do-ers. Feel empowered and ready to take action. Join us and The Directory of Social Change on the 25th of June in London for a day of real-life, inspiring stories, mistakes and advice on all things digital.
Date: Tuesday 25th June 2019
Address: Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA
How many years? How many conferences? How many more 20 somethings in tortoiseshell glasses will stand up to tell you how you’re doing your job wrong? Action is what this event is all about.
So that you can start taking action, we’ll grapple with the challenges and tell you how it is. We’ll talk: finding the cash, being successful with digital against the odds, tech disasters and separating facts from fearmongering.
We’ve invited leaders to share honestly and openly their experiences and advice to support your organisation in moving forward with digital. This event is for the do-ers, the people who want to make it happen.
It’s our second year in a row hosting this event with our partners over at The Directory of Social Change and we’re more excited than ever. Although 2018 was a fantastic event full of fascinating content, we’ve dived into feedback to make this year even better.
For one day, we’ll focus on the following themes:
Big impact against the odds
- Anti-social media – How to go guerilla on social media
- Honest hour – Digital disasters and what we learnt
- Being smart with digital
- Cyber security & GDPR – Separating the facts from the fearmongering
- Building leadership before building tech
- Preparing yourself for the best digital funding bid application
- Changemakers – Behaviours to inspire a change in culture
- Service users building charities in a digital world
Looking to the future
- How the civil society strategy can change your digital strategy
- Charity seeking digital innovator with GSOH
- Future tech trends
- Ask a digital native what makes them care
