ojo are delighted to be back sponsoring this Conference and are looking forward to the whole event


Now in its twelfth successful year we are delighted to be back sponsoring the Civil Society’s annual Charity Technology Conference on November 9th at The Mermaid Centre, London.

What is the Charity Technology Conference?

This is a unique event designed for charity IT and digital leaders.This year’s programme will showcase innovation across the sector, demonstrating technology playing an integral role in influencing a variety of functions within charities of all shapes and sizes. It will include inspiring key-notes speeches, thoughtful plenary sessions and practical workshops.

As we enter the final stages of preparation for this conference the final programme of events shows a full day’s itinerary of talks and workshops. We are really excited to see the varied and diverse speakers and subjects within this digital sector.

During the conference there will be a variety of talks across key themes of data, digital, leadership and innovation delivered by expert speakers from the high-tech industry. It is a chance for the charity sector to embrace the world of high tech for good causes.

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking and debate, as well as an interactive exhibition and live product demonstrations. The event will end with a complimentary drinks reception to reflect on the day’s learning.

Our own Nathan Baranowski will be speaking in the 11.30am slot discussing “Driving value through technology”. In his session, he will remind everyone to ‘dare to dream’. With technology changing the way we interact with one another, consume information and engage with stakeholders, harnessing the right solutions is the key to any organisational strategy. Nathan with share the challenges and solutions he has experienced moving from digital despair to true innovation.

Throughout the day there will be time to wander through the Exhibitors, of which ojo are one. Our focus on the stand this year is making technology make a difference and exploring our Charity App initiative. We want to offer charities and third-sector organisations the chance to co-create their own, branded mobile presence and we look forward to some valuable conversations with true digital leaders and innovators on this subject.
