Neither of my teams covered themselves in glory – and I’m happy to accept my share of the blame for not knowing that the person who had set the world record for the the most number of miles cycled in a year (in 1939) had actually done over 75,000 miles – that’s over 200 miles a day.
Nevertheless at the first, run by CharityComms, I was lucky enough to be introduced to a new online community, Together We’re Better, which brings together digital professionals in the not-for-profit sector.
As a company with a particular expertise in the third sector, with clients including charities, membership bodies and academic institutions, we have joined and we wanted to share details of it with you.
Together We’re Better aims to share knowledge and provide an information hub of blogs, case studies and interviews with industry specialists.
I particularly like this one about how to create scannable webpages – watch out for me putting the tips into practice – and their Q and As, such as this one with Caroline Reid of the Stroke Association.
TWB has very kindly asked me to blog for them, and my first one has already gone up: Four tips to help spark the interest of media editors.
It also curates a forum which people use as a point of reference for resources and a way to ask their peers directly for advice, and it organises events to bring people together, giving people from different charities, membership bodies, museums and others working in the third sector an opportunity to meet each other and share learnings across the sector.
I’m looking forward to attending my first one!
TWB is supported by Sift Digital, a user-centred agency specialising in digital transformation projects and working to drive the not-for-profit sector forward.
