They say necessity is the Mother of Invention, so strap yourselves in for a hackathon of creativity. The TFGL Bat Signal has been beamed into the sky leaving Ben White, your stand-in host to sort of moodliy perch on a gargoyle somewhere trying to get a good Zoom connection.

In this episode we’re talking about the interesting choices ahead for employers in the third sector, coming to terms with a more remote workforce. Twitter have opened the tip jar and Signal has been shining a light on Facebook’s targeted advertising, leaving the team to wonder what they’d be labeled as.

Joining Ben (Tired Professional Dad) is Greg Ashton (Angry Food Obsessed Dog Dad) and our special guest Zoe Amar (Knackered Tech Nerd)

Zoe is widely regarded as one of the charity sector’s leading digital experts. She founded digital agency and social enterprise Zoe Amar Digital in 2013, she is the Chair of The Charity Digital Code of Practice and her podcast Starts At The Top discusses how leaders across all sectors are using digital to navigate change,

If you work for a charity or a non-profit organisation based in the UK, Zoe would love to hear your views about your digital skills and support needs for the 2021 Charity Skills Report. You can take the survey here.
