"We have had some good experiences with webinar formats. While we know that the actual impact, of course, is limited, webinars or kick-off workshops are a suitable format for nonprofits to create an idea on what a topic is about and decide if it may be important to dive deeper. With our focus on digital strategy, we hope to set these impulses via Digital am Freitag. We also provide room to discuss the topics in dedicated consultation hours with those who find a topic relevant - and can probably further support in follow-up pro bono projects."
“A lot of small and medium-sized NGO’s not only lack the funding and financial resources for paid consulting but also have limited capacities for dealing with the topic of digitalization on a strategic level. The webinars and consulting hours by BearingPoint provided a much-needed transfer of “classic” for-profit management tools and approaches to the NGO sector. The participants were able to get to know the potential of digitalization, widened their perspective, and were provided with hands-on tools to continue their strategic digitalization process. To be able to offer effective and realistic tools, knowledge, and consultation, pro bono providers should not only understand the structures and logic of the non-profit sector, but more so the people, their motivation for volunteering, the way they work, and the “language” they use for doing so.”
