We’ve a Guest Blog today from Sam Gillett from the Media Trust, and how an event they’re running could support your charity or community organisation to communicate more effectively:
Communications charity Media Trust is running a free volunteer event at BBC Glasgow on the 4th October called Speedmatching. These events are a great opportunity to network with other media professionals but also to meet with local charities and volunteer groups.
Speedmatching works in a similar way to speed dating. Ten voluntary organisations each get five minute slots to talk with ten different media advisers. Our professionals have 5 minutes to speak to the charity representatives to see if they may be interested in supporting them. It runs from 5.45pm – 7.30pm and has a very relaxed atmosphere with wine; refreshments and nibbles provided for.
Charities come to Media Trust looking for different kinds of media support, ranging from PR to marketing support; social media and web support; film and radio; advertising and design and any form of media and communications. What Media Trust does is to use the skills that professionals have to help a struggling charity sector with advice and skills that they don’t have. We are looking for professionals with wide ranging skills, who are looking to support small local groups.
