Charities and the digital/tech sector each have their own distinct languages, assumptions and knowledge gaps. One of the huge challenges for working together is understanding each other!
This month we're hosting a "fireside chat" with experts from both charity and digital to share their experiences and lessons learned from both sides.
Jacqui Taylor: LifeLink CEO, and Emma Whitelock: LEAD Scotland CEO. In order to digitally evolve the charity both Jacqui and Emma had to learn a whole new language to be able to articulate what it was they wanted and needed as a service and to be able to negotiate contracts.
Gavin Bell: SCVO Milo Programme Manager. Gavin manages 'Milo' database of voluntary organisations, volunteers and opportunities. He support 500 staff across the Third Sector Interface network to get the most out of the system and build up a big picture of the third sector across Scotland. Gavin speaks both tech and third sector language. (Gav in also a published author)
