At Telco Together, we know that ICT (Information & Communications Technology) can be a tricky area for non-profits, who may not have their own dedicated ICT staff. To help solve some of the smaller issues charities face, we run Skills Exchange events in Melbourne and Sydney.

These events give non-profits the opportunity to get free advice from skilled volunteers on any communications technology challenge they are facing. It’s a unique opportunity for charities to get access to IT professionals, who donate up to two days of their time to help charities.

How It Works

The Skills Exchange are “match-making” events, where charities pitch their problem to a roomful of keen specialists. Telco Together support charities throughout the entire process. We will help you define your technical problem, and assist you to create your pitch. After the event, we will provide you with support to maximise the potential for your problems to be resolved by your volunteer.
