As part of our Media Matching service, Speedmatching events provide a fun way for charities, voluntary organisations and advisers to find their 'perfect match'.
How does Speedmatching work?
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.
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.
To find out more or sign up for Speedmatching, or if your organisation is interested in hosting an event in London or regionally, please call 020 7871 5658 or email us at email@example.com.
