Event description

Description

Microsoft's mission - to empower every person and organisation to achieve more - is at the heart of everything we do.

In the UK, we want to help empower charities to access and use technology to transform how they create social value, deliver impact and amplify how they can provide vital services to individuals and communities.

Since 2006, we have donated more than £175m of technology to UK charities, giving tools and technologies to those with aspirations to change the world or just their neighbourhood.

But it isn't just about providing access to technology; we know that without the right knowledge, the value of technology can remain untapped. Microsoft Tech4Good days are aimed at helping charities exploit technology more effectively to further their mission.

Tech4Good days give UK charities the opportunity to learn how to get the best out of technology from some of Microsoft's foremost experts.

This day will cover topics around:

  • Digital transformation in the modern world.
  • Why the Cloud is essential for your future success.
  • Making your data work for your charity.
  • Are you collaborating as well as you could be?
  • The storytelling power of Sway.
  • How Microsoft discounts and donations can help your charities.

There will also be opportunities for you to network and discuss your technology queries with peers from other Scottish charities, learning from their experiences and perhaps striking up new partnerships.

Tech4Good days are free to attend for UK charities and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
