Although charities have been slow to pick up the potential offered by mobile the barriers to adoption are crumbling. With a growing number and range of successful case studies, the removal of VAT on donations by mobile (see charitytext.org) and with the almost total ubiquity of mobile phones, charities need to take a close look at how to make the best of mobile.

  • Mike Short - VP O2 & MDA
  • Robert Thurner - Incentivated
  • Andrew Jackson - Head of Client Services, Mobile Interactive Technology
  • Joe Saxton - founder and driver of ideas at nfpSynergy will talk about 'Why charities are a great business opportunity for the mobile industry'. Joe is author of the report published in July 'Sending out an SMS'.
Following the speakers there will be questions and discussion and lots of time for networking.
