Speedmatching

Next events:

27 Oct in London - 5.45pm - 7.45pm 

16 Nov in Manchester - 6pm - 8pm in partnership with CIPR Northwest and specifically for PR needs. 

As part of our Media Matching service, Speedmatching provides a fun way for charities, voluntary organisations and volunteers to find their 'perfect match'.

What is Speedmatching?

Speedmatching events are free networking opportunities where representatives from not-for-profit organisations get to meet face-to-face with media professionals looking to volunteer their time. It works in a similar way to speed dating. Ten voluntary organisations each get five minute slots to talk with ten different media volunteers.

Organisations discuss what kind of support they're looking for, while volunteers try to give on the spot help and advice, as well as looking for longer term volunteering opportunities. If a volunteer 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.

To make the evening more relaxed and enjoyable, we provide wine, nibbles and a friendly environment. Events are generally held in the evenings at a range of exciting venues such as the BBC, MTV and the Guardian.
