Share Digital transformation in the charity sector

Event Details

Digital technology is helping us deliver social value in brand new ways. But how can non-profit organisations make the most of these new opportunities? In this evening of sharing, learning and discussion charity digital leaders with direct experience of carrying out digital transformation plans will share their stories, thoughts and tips.

The evening, open only to those who work for charities, will have three parts: a talk, a panel discussion and a chance to mingle with drinks and cake.


The New Reality - a talk by Julie Dodd

Julie Dodd's research study into how digital technology will deliver the next step-change in social impact, The New Reality, has been making waves among charity leaders. In this talk Julie will talk about her key findings, the biggest challenges facing non-profit organisations and her framework for digital transformation.


Panel discussion - hosted by Jim Bowes (CEO, Manifesto)

This discussion will unpack the key theme from The New Reality: digital transformation in the charity sector. Contributions from digital leaders who are actually going through the process will provide insight from various stages of the journey towards digital excellence. Panel members include:
