London Speedmatching event for charities

05 Feb

Wednesday 5 February 2020 18:00 - 20:30

Join us on Wednesday 5 February for an evening with London-based media and creative industry experts to get on the spot advice, ideas and feedback.

Are there aspects of your communications strategy that you would like to get advice on? Do you have a campaign or event on the horizon or new audience you would like to engage? Then sign up to our free Speedmatching event.

How does Speedmatching work?

Speedmatching, based on the speed dating model, is a fun and informal way to get 1-to-1 advice from media and communication experts for your charity.

The event bring’s together attendees from the charity sector with media and creative industry professionals who want to volunteer their time and expertise with charity’s like yours.

You’ll spend a few minutes with each volunteer, giving you the opportunity to discuss your charity’s marketing and communications challenge(s).

Volunteer support for your charity

As the name suggests, Speedmatching will also give you the opportunity to meet a volunteer “match” for your charity. Each charity attendee and volunteer will be given a match card. If you both mark on your card that you’d like to work together post-event, then it’s a match and we’ll put you in touch.

Event structure

At this event we will have up to 15 charities and 15 media professionals. You will be rotating around the room and have up to eight minutes with each media professional to talk about your communication challenge, and get free on the spot advice and meet potential volunteers for your charity.


“It is the first time I have done a Speedmatching event – what a great experience! I am impressed and strongly recommend this to everyone".

Mihai Bica, Roma Support Group

Whether you are the CEO, a volunteer, Head of Comms or a Digital Officer you can come along and get expert advice to help your charity raise their profile.

This event is for registered charities only. Due to demand, we can only accommodate one person per charity.
