We’re pleased to announce some of the speakers and sponsors who will be joining us for our #BeMoreDigital 2020 Conference on the 5th of March.
We’re thrilled to announce that a number of speakers and sponsors will be joining us at our #BeMoreDigital 2020 conference on the 5th of March at the Olympia Conference Centre.
The conference is a fantastic opportunity for charities of all sizes to learn new skills and pledge to #BeMoreDigital in 2020 and beyond. We wouldn’t be able to deliver this exciting programme of events without the collaboration of our speakers and sponsors, and we’re very lucky to share the expertise of some of the UK’s leading charities and tech vendors.
Mencap are one of the country’s leading charities working to improve the lives of people with a learning disability. They provide a wide range of services to beneficiaries, including round-the-clock care, family support and information, helping someone join in with local leisure activities, providing advice on employment and education and helping someone to live independently for the first time.
Head of Data Victoria Pike joins us for a session on ‘Democratising Data: How to make better use of data for you and your beneficiaries’. This session will cover key insights, case studies and a look at how Mencap is attempting to overcome the socio-political and tech barriers that get in the way of ensuring the right data gets to the right people at the right time.
Also joining us as sponsors of the event are m-hance - the UK’s first finance solution for charities built on Dynamics 365 Business Central. They provide a wide range of services, including GDPR assistance for Dynamics GP. In their session, charity expert Tony Cassie will outline how the Dynamics 365 platform can provide a 360-degree view of supporters, as well as leading a deep-dive into business intelligence and the insights it brings.
Humanity and Inclusion will lead the ‘Is your charity meeting accessibility standards?’ session. Humanity & Inclusion’s Manuelle Beuque will be joined by charity consultant Bertie Bosredon to explore exactly the requirements organisations need to meet to provide a digital experience that is truly available to everyone.
Last but not least we’re thrilled to announce that Voicebox will be joining us as sponsors of our #BeMoreDigital 2020 Conference. Voicebox is a multimedia company that provides subtitling, transcription and voice over services to companies around the world.
It’s not the first time that we’ve partnered with Voicebox, who we worked closely with on our Digital Fundraising Day virtual conference. They will be providing closed captioning on the day, in order to make the conference as accessible as possible.
Last year’s first-ever Charity Tech Conference was a huge success, as we were joined by over 200 charity delegates for an exciting and informative day of learning and discussion. This year we have even bigger plans – as we aim to welcome over 300 charity delegates for a programme of 16 sessions and 5 interactive panels across 4 main topic areas.
The purpose of the conference is to equip charities with the knowledge, skills and support they need to implement digital culture, tech and skills into their organisation. We found that many charities were scared or put off by the term ‘digital transformation’. When we dug a little deeper it became clear that it’s not about transformation, but rather focusing on how charities can #BeMoreDigital.
We look forward to announcing further speakers and sponsors in the lead-up to the event.
Tickets are available now. You can book tickets here.
As part of our commitment to making sure the conference is accessible, as well as ensuring that the digital charity sector’s focus is not confined to London, we’ve launched a #BeMoreDigital 2020 Conference travel bursary. Read more about it and find out whether you qualify here.
