Organisations looking for innovative ideas to solve their biggest problems or improve digital service areas this year are being offered a free workshop by leading digital product and service studio Code Computerlove.
Its 'Make Change Fridays' workshops aim to help organisations with tech for good initiatives that are seeking solutions to challenging problems - whether that relates to strategic direction, comms, digital platforms, or positioning.
Code has recently trialled the workshops with charity Manchester Pride, where the agency provided strategic communications support in preparation for 2022 marketing planning.
Lizzy Holroyd from Manchester Pride said: "The team at Code were very insightful and generous with their time. They introduced a range of strategic and tactical comms ideas that has given us lots of impetus and a greater focus for our activities this year."
Rob Jones, Managing Director of Code says: “This is our way of giving back and supporting tech for good initiatives that make meaningful change to people’s lives and communities.
“We have previously dedicated 10% of our time on Friday afternoons for our team’s personal development, but many felt that working on live briefs would be a more beneficial way to develop their skills. We’re also passionate about supporting organisations like Pride who are making a real difference, and our team now have the option to support if they wish.”
Rob added: “We have developed time-effective and impactful methods to deep dive into our client’s needs which we implement in our experience design and day zero workshops. Our ‘light touch’ Make Change Fridays workshops take elements of these methods to provide a boost of inspiration, direction and actionable ideas to shape future roadmaps.
“We can support organisations with common business problems and use our expertise across strategy, marketing, tech and customer experience design to hone in on exciting ideas for how they might be tackled.
"We have always offered our event space for free to the local Manchester digital community to share ideas and collaborate, and we hope this initiative is another way we can help businesses thrive this year.”
