We all know that planning an event takes a lot of time and effort, so when the event happens you want it to be great, so you know your hard work has been worth it. We can help you to plan an event that will be engaging and memorable, by making full use of digital tools, e.g. using voting and polling, live social media or blogging, more interesting presentations, streaming live video, taking video and photos at the event, and more.
Everything we advise will be designed to support the aims of your event, so that you get more out of the time that people are with you. We can also support you with marketing and promotion beforehand.
We can provide training covering a broad range of digital skills, such as social media, project management, video, as well as an introduction to specific tools. All of our training is completely tailored with your needs in mind, so if you’re looking to learn something just get in touch and we’ll talk about what sessions you’re interested in.
We can also offer one-to-one coaching sessions on social media. We’ll talk about what you want to get from social media, the kinds of things you could talk about in posts, and how to use it.
See an example of our training here.
Whenever you use social media you should always know why you’re doing it. It’s important to have a strategy – if you’ve never written one before or you want to try out something new we can offer facilitation and advice, supporting you through the process of writing a social media strategy that works for you.
We can also offer you a social media audit. There are hundreds of social media sites, you can’t (and don’t need to) be on them all. We can advise which sites are most popular among your target audience and best suit your needs. This would also include a performance review and advice for any existing accounts.
Got a new report or project you want to make a splash about? We can support you with digital marketing and social media marketing e.g. we can design reports, create videos, infographics, gifs, and other digital media, which can help you to get your message out there and impress your funders and supporters!
Funders want to see something new and exciting with a lasting legacy. Using digital well to support a project can give you a competitive edge. While you’re writing a bid or planning a project we can advise you on how your project can be digitally enhanced.
We can directly support you in using digital on your project, e.g. we can create case studies, take photos, shoot and edit video, create infographics and other visual media, manage your social media account(s), and provide information and reports about impact and reach to let you know how you’re doing, which you can then also share with funders.
We offer a free consultation, in which we’ll discuss what your needs are and what support we can offer you. Above you’ll find an idea of the kinds of things Fancy Guppy can do for your organisation. Mix and match what kind of support and services you want and then give us a call or email us.

We’ve had lots of positive comments about them and funders seem quite impressed too!”

"Michaela answers all questions and makes things easier to understand" "Michaela seemed very experienced and also willing to share the information" "The training was really informative and I'd love to learn more with Fancy Guppy" "Very informative and helpful"
“Working with Michaela really helped me become a confident Tweeter. She’s great at explaining the nuts-and-bolts to beginners. But what I really appreciated was her explaining how my personal Twitter use could fit in with my organisation’s. She gave me the space and confidence to be myself online and speak about things that are passionate to me.”
“I was really impressed with the way Michaela was able to use a limited amount of information to tell a compelling story about our project beneficiaries. I always got the impression she cared as much about the project as I did – it was clear in the way she spoke to people, got them on-board, and encouraged them to tell their stories. It’s been a pleasure to see all the different outputs she’s produced: vines, videos, blogs – it was always a nice surprise to see what was coming next.”
