How Can We Build the ICT4D Capacity of Development Organizations?

Please RSVP Now
Bangkok - June 20th - RSVP Now
We live in an increasingly digital world where technology is no longer an additive to development programs, but often a core tool for us to connect with our constituencies, understand our progress, and communicate our successes.

Most development organization staff, and a growing number of the individuals they work with, have some experience using ICTs. However, many development organizations are still struggling to use technology in their programs, and there is the perception that as a whole, we are lagging far behind the private sector in our technology skills.

We do do have some unique advantages, particularly non-profit, non-governmental, and civil society organizations that can access low cost or donated technology, and corporate discount programs, but where to invest scarce technology funds to have the most impact?

Please RSVP now for the next Technology Salon Bangkok to explore questions like:
  • Are there ICT usages and challenges unique to the development sector?
  • What tools and resources are available to development organizations?
  • Who is using ICT in their programs, and what can we learn from their failures?
  • Where are the models that can be replicated to bridge organizational capacity gaps?
  • How can we better train and support staff to adopt and use new ICT tools?
Our discussion will be led by Simon Gee, Managing Director at TechSoup Asia-Pacific. Simon is a digital native that has been working in the ICT sector for over 15 years, with the last 10 focused on ICT usage in the development and NGO sectors.
 
We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited, so please RSVP now to join in the discussion. Once we reach our 30-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon


The Technology Salonâ„¢ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
  • technology's impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people - and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged. 

It's also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
