So far we’ve run training sessions in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Parkes. We’ve talked to hundreds of people from the non-profit sector about how tools like YouTube, Google Apps and Google Earth can be used to make collaboration easier, cut costs and help their operations run more efficiently.
Through these Google for Non-Profits sessions, we've noticed that demand for this type of information has been high. When we announced our first session, more than 400 organisations registered in the space of 48 hours. We also know there are many rural and regional organisations (often the ones who have the most to gain by embracing technology), who have not been able to travel to attend these workshops.
That’s why we’ve decided to bring our Google for Non-profit training directly to you via Google+ Hangouts. With these hangouts, anyone anywhere can watch and take part.
Our first Google+ Hangout for Australian Non-Profits will run on October 4th at 2:00pm. The ninety minute session will provide a broad overview of the Google products most useful to non-profits, as well as information about the specific grants and programs that are available.
The hangout is aimed at leaders within these organisations - not necessarily the technical folk - who are interested in learning more about how Google tools could be used to help fulfil their objectives.
