Media Trust Networking Event, Leicester 2/11/11

Date: 2 November 2011
Venue:Phoenix Square Film & Digital Media Centre, Leicester

The Media Trust is holding a networking event for charities and media volunteers.
Speedmatching events are free networking opportunities where representatives from not-for-profit organisations get to meet face-to-face with media professionals (advisers) looking to volunteer their time. Speedmatching works in a similar way to speed dating. Ten voluntary organisations each get five minute slots to talk with ten different media advisers. Organisations discuss what kind of support they're looking for, while advisers try to give on the spot help and advice, as well as looking for longer term volunteering opportunities. If an adviser and voluntary organisation would like to go on to work together, they indicate their interest on a match card and the Media Matching team put them in touch after the event. The support that charities are looking for ranges from help with a PR Strategy to editing a film to becoming a trustee for a charity.To make the evening more relaxed and enjoyable, we provide wine, nibbles and a friendly environment.

If you'd like to come along, booking is essential. Please email mediamatching@mediatrust.org to book your place. It's free to attend, but spaces are limited, so book early if you can!"
