February 2020 · Filed under Shine · 2 min read

Our Shine launch event took place at the Gateway in Warrington on Thursday 23 January, where we were joined by 100 Making Space stakeholders, all passionate about going digital, and excited for the future.

Shine Audience

Our CEO, Rachel Peacock, opened the event, welcoming everyone to the launch and thanking them for choosing to be involved in such an inspiring and momentous project for our charity.

Following Rachel’s opening speech we heard from our 3 digital experts, including:

  • Joseph Strain, Business Transformation and Operations Manager at Making Space
  • Claire Sutton, Digital transformation lead at NCF
  • Arun Jothinath, Director at We Care Group, sharing their experience of going digital.

They discussed what we want project Shine to achieve and our digital journey so far, before their focus became looking at digital solutions for care planning.

We enjoyed 10-minute lightning talks from each of our digital care planning exhibitors, Sekoia, Nourish and Person Centred Software, talking about their digital solutions.

During lunch our Shine Marketplace opened where delegates chatted directly with our exhibitors, asked them questions about their products and got to trial them for themselves.

The event was a huge success, with fantastic live, interactive feedback and polling throughout the day using Slido.
