Leading Strategy and Policy Development at New Philanthropy Capital (NPC)
David works on a variety of NPC’s research and consulting projects, supporting charity, funder and government clients such as Mind, the Stone Family Foundation and Arts Council England. David takes a particular interest in the way that the public, private and voluntary sectors interact—from the increasing engagement of charities with public sector commissioning, to the advent of new forms of social finance.
The tech for good collective: Working together for the common good
Tech for good is a vibrant and exciting piece of the digital puzzle, but it’s also fragmented, subscale and not yet mainstream. Can social sector folk who champion digital and developers that care about social impact work together more to create critical mass out of their individual passions? If so, how do we do this?
Workshop: Practical steps for achieving collective digital transformation
This session will present approaches to collectively delivering digital transformation in challenging, change-resistant environments. Using their work in the social sector as a back-drop, and including examples from sub-sectors like delivering services for older people and advice provision, it will present some key techniques and approaches we can draw on to supercharge the work people are already doing for maximum impact.
Working with Sigma’s Head of Experience Design, Chris Bush, you’ll learn about mapping the challenges and benefits within an organisation or sector, defining user personas and user journeys to support digital transformation, and evaluating open source and common platforms that can help to realise organisational goals.
