Getting to grips with digital transformation

Scotland networking group

14 June 2018

Digital transformation. It’s the buzzword of the moment in the charity world – and a huge challenge for organisations big and small.

But what does it actually mean? And how do you go about it? Where do you start?

At this meeting, delegates heard all about the ins and outs of digital transformation, including tips and advice for starting and progressing your own digital revolution.


Creating our own chatbot to communicate with volunteers – Morven MacLean, volunteering development manager, Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS)

Morven talked us through how the charity improved communications with volunteers using a chatbot called CHASbot, and Workplace by Facebook – and how you might use these technologies too.

About the Scotland Networking Group

The Scotland Networking Group is a network for comms professionals working in Scotland-based charities. 

You’ll be given the opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer-to-peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ and relaxed environment.

Each event will focus on a topic which delegates will discuss in small groups before feeding back to the group as a whole. There’ll also be plenty of time for networking.

These networking events are held in Edinburgh, three times a year. 

If there’s a topic you’d like to discuss or if you’d be interested in speaking at a future event, please contact Vanessa Weddell.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Hanna Chowdhury to be added to the mailing list.
