13 Sep Benefits to non-profits of using digital, and why they don’t.
Recently I spoke at a NetSquared Midlands meeting. These (free!) meetings happen once a month, for people interested in using web or mobile technology for social good. To find out when the next one is and book a place to come along, have a look at NetSquared Midlands on MeetUp.
At this months’ meeting, I spoke about the benefits to non-profits of using digital, and why they don’t. Here’s a video of my slides and talk. Have a look and then in the comments below let me know what you think are the main barriers to charities making more use of digital and how we can begin to overcome them.
