In response to the success of the inaugural The Skills Exchange event in Melbourne last year, Telco Together hosted a Sydney event in late November. As with the format of the first event, six charities pitched their IT and tech related issues to a roomful of specialists keen to help problem solve the charity’s challenges.
The match-making style event was hosted by NOKIA at their Pyrmont offices, and involved specialists from Cisco, Vocus, Inabox, Nokia, Deloittes and Maysix Consulting engaging with charities about a variety of issues. Charities at the event included Summerhill Children’s Centre, Hello Sunday Morning, NSW Centre For Volunteering, Beacon Foundation and Black Dog.
“The event was professional, relaxed and straight to the point – I can definitely see the benefit of such a program. I have already had our specialist from Inabox come to our centre. We are very excited and appreciative for the help and support in IT moving forward!!! Thanks again for the opportunity to be a part of the event.” - Emma Georgopoulos, Director, Summer Hill Children’s Centre
