Places are still available for the ninth Charity Meetup event. And this time the topic is Digital Innovation.
There will be an expert panel (see full details below), activities, games, and plenty of time for chatting, drinks and nibbles.
Who will you meet at the Charity Meetup?
A diverse network of connections is essential for both people and organisations in the non-profit sector. The purpose of the Charity Meetup is to help foster and grow these connections.
The Charity Meetup is a relaxed evening of drinks, chatting, networking and fun, and all are welcome. The event was created by Dawn Newton, after noticing that there were lots of events but nothing which supported participants to network in a practical way through facilitated activities.
