Following the success of the previous two year’s events, our partner Qlic is once again hosting Small Charity IT Day on 16th November 2022. It is a day dedicated to providing advice and guidance to help small charities along their IT journey, giving you the latest information and tips on lots of IT topics such as cyber security, hybrid working, digital transformation, cloud backup, website management, etc.  They have some amazing guest speakers joining from Datto, Datakind and National Cyber Security Centre just to name a few, so this is an event that cannot be missed if you are a small charity!  Qlic is offering 100 attendees £15 Just Eat e-vouchers, as well as hosting a live prize draw at the end of the day where one lucky attendee will win their exclusive tech bundle!
