Our #BeMoreDigital Virtual Conference 2021 is just around the corner. A host of charity and tech experts will deliver virtual content over the course of three days, starting on 2 March 2021.
The sessions will cover everything from inclusivity in digital marketing to top tips for digital storytelling, from the importance of legacy giving to upscaling digital service delivery.
We’ve confirmed the full agenda for the #BeMoreDigital Virtual Conference 2021. We would not be able to bring you our varied programme of free content without the partnership of our sponsors, each of whom have provided so much support to the UK charity sector.
Each of our sponsors will run their own session during the conference, using their expert knowledge and extensive experience to deliver insight into a range of digital topics.
