This year’s Digital evolution: Making good things happen conference is the event 2013 to inspire digital inclusion practitioners working at a grassroots level to have a greater impact in their communities and reach out to the final fifth of the UK left offline.
We’ve got a broad range of speakers from across the sectors including:
John Bird MBE, Social Entrepreneur and Founder of the Big Issue.
Erica Swanson, who heads up Google’s Digital Inclusion programme in the US.
Maren Ashford, Deputy Director, Partnerships and Digital Inclusion Teams, Cabinet Office Anna Easton, BT’s Connected Society Programme Director
Linda Quinn, Director of Communications and Marketing, Big Lottery Fund
We’ll also be running a range of practical workshops that will provide you with lots of great ideas to take back to your centre, including:
- Preparing for Universal Credit
- How to evaluate your projects
- Fundraising outside the box
We’ll be holding surgeries to help you get to grips with case studies, social media, PR and more so you can spread the word about what you’re doing - plus you’ll have a chance to network with other digital inclusion practitioners from across the country.
If you work in this area and want to take a fresh look at digital inclusion, reenergise a project or revitalise your thinking, this is the conference for you. Book your ticket now.
