Digital Conference - Engaging your audiences more effectively


This Digital Conference is delivered in partnership by Connected Voice and Digital Voice to help local organisations serving Newcastle and Gateshead to embrace digital and engage your audiences more effectively. It’s a day-long event packed with useful practical guidance and ideas.

This isn’t a technical conference, it’s geared towards local community organisations who want to use digital better and are looking for inspiration.

Each session is booked separately, so you can attend one or all of them, depending on your needs and interests. The sessions feature the work of a range of local VCSE organisations that have developed their own digital engagement strategy, either formally or informally.  The focus throughout is how to reach people who are not already online and how to support people with few or no digital skills or little experience.

At 1pm there will be the opportunity to come together and network with other local VCSE organisations about the challenges, successes, and how to progress - or where to begin - thinking strategically about the way you reach your communities digitally.

Remember, you need to book separately for each of the sessions you want to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.

Each session is 50 minutes to allow for a break for those attending multiple sessions.
