Small Charity Week Speedmatching Event

18 Jun

Tuesday 18 June 2019 14:00 - 16:30

Join us on 18 June for an afternoon of free on the spot marketing and communications advice, ideas and feedback from leading media and creative industry experts.

Media Trust has teamed up with FSI for Small Charity Week’s Big Advice Day to create a special Speedmatching event exclusively for small charities. Register to attend below.

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 brings together attendees from the charity sector with media and creative industry professionals who want to volunteer their time and expertise with charities like yours.

You’ll spend a few minutes with each volunteer as you rotate with around the room, getting valuable on the spot advice.

“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
