00:16:41.400 --> 00:16:45.090
Matteo Sisto: Correct, correct. This is a very interesting story on events.
00:16:45.720 --> 00:16:54.330
Matteo Sisto: Which like a good represent you a bit. So the main overview of what are the tools, the software and then kind of speak a bit about digital transformation.
00:16:54.600 --> 00:17:00.870
Matteo Sisto: But like the biggest part of the of the event today is going to be monitoring asking questions to the participants.
00:17:01.200 --> 00:17:15.690
Matteo Sisto: So trying to understand with them. What are going to be the one is going to be the contents of the next workshops we are going to organize but like I will explain everything when we start properly so like about a couple of minutes, no more than that.
00:17:16.530 --> 00:17:17.670
Matteo Sisto: Great work from us.
00:17:22.470 --> 00:17:24.540
Matteo Sisto: Land. I was going to situation there.
00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:26.940
533307: Well, the situation is still saying
00:17:29.220 --> 00:17:32.730
533307: No work. We're not allowed to go to work and that's another essential business.
00:17:34.350 --> 00:17:37.770
533307: And still waiting for the peak of Corona to hit next week.
00:17:40.560 --> 00:17:47.130
Matteo Sisto: Yeah, I'm originally from Italy. I have my family and friends there and lots of colleagues and they're the situation is
00:17:48.000 --> 00:18:04.590
Matteo Sisto: Pretty bad pretty pretty bad they are now starting to be a little bit on a little bit better but it's gonna take time and you know uncertainty behind this sort of things are really hard to see that some more people are joining
00:18:04.950 --> 00:18:05.850
Matteo Sisto: Yes. Yeah, we got
00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:06.660
Matteo Sisto: The loving
00:18:06.840 --> 00:18:07.710
533307: People to hear you.
00:18:08.550 --> 00:18:13.020
Matteo Sisto: Thank you very much. I'll explain everything and just few minutes. Hello.
00:18:55.860 --> 00:19:01.650
Matteo Sisto: And without further ado, being six or six in this country.
00:19:02.910 --> 00:19:09.810
Matteo Sisto: I will open their wallets. So welcome, everyone. Bye, sweetie. Thank you very much for being here. I'm your host Mattel
00:19:11.010 --> 00:19:19.440
Matteo Sisto: I'm financially, a man on a mission since I was young, I wanted to make the world a better place. I joined the nonprofit sector professionally in 2014
00:19:19.920 --> 00:19:27.870
Matteo Sisto: And I've been doing all sorts of things from cleaning up to high level strategy. Recently, I started my own venture impact, bro.
00:19:28.350 --> 00:19:37.020
Matteo Sisto: It's a consultancy agency for a nonprofit organization focused on the inbox fundamentally it's the metrics that evaluate the success of your initiative.
00:19:37.710 --> 00:19:43.080
Matteo Sisto: As it is profit or money or business proposition. This is how I feel about that.
00:19:43.650 --> 00:19:51.120
Matteo Sisto: So if you have the time to read the short article I wrote as an introduction. Introduction to these events, probably you know a bit already about me.
00:19:51.390 --> 00:19:57.390
Matteo Sisto: So I'm a big nerd and I strongly believe that there's no profit sector can and need to do more.
00:19:58.050 --> 00:20:12.660
Matteo Sisto: I found out just recently about in that square that is the umbrella organization that is supporting these sort of events or tell you a bit more about that very, very soon. So kind of mentally next squared is a community to share my passion and vision for the nonprofit sector.
00:20:13.770 --> 00:20:18.840
Matteo Sisto: Meaning that they believe that technology can be a game changer for for nonprofit organization.
00:20:21.000 --> 00:20:31.230
Matteo Sisto: Services. It needs the use of technology, the work. It's too important for us to fail to adopt the tools that will make us more effective. That's why in a square dances.
00:20:32.340 --> 00:20:44.040
Matteo Sisto: Every month all over the words that are more than 120 organizer that bring together, NGOs and technology community to muster the tools of the web.
00:20:44.550 --> 00:20:53.130
Matteo Sisto: But will tell you more a bit later on. So I'm really thankful to see you all here. And thank you also to the ones that completed completed the survey.
00:20:56.910 --> 00:21:04.410
Matteo Sisto: I hope it wasn't too long, I must say that Cobain's as a huge impacts on who planning and delivery of disciplines.
00:21:05.010 --> 00:21:18.540
Matteo Sisto: And the format for today's definitely an experiment I ran several participatory workshops all across Europe, but this is the first time I had to do it online on zoom, so please bear with me for any shortcomings.
00:21:19.170 --> 00:21:31.830
Matteo Sisto: One more thing, as many of you unconfined my home. So my internet is not super perfect and like I had a backup plan. So in case if something happens and the connections drop
00:21:33.540 --> 00:21:40.230
Matteo Sisto: You know, like, please stay with me. I'll try to join back very soon. So don't don't get stressed about that.
00:21:41.310 --> 00:21:59.880
Matteo Sisto: Last disclaimer i i don't know how much you know about participated methodologies and how you use to the sorts of formatting for events during the session you will be encouraged to share your ideas and point of view this is not, this is not going to be your usual presentation.
00:22:00.930 --> 00:22:08.250
Matteo Sisto: I'm expecting to engage with you and I prepared some icebreakers and other simple teachings of to to
00:22:09.330 --> 00:22:19.380
Matteo Sisto: Participate so very soon you will be asked to unmute yourself and do some things have not yet if you've noticed I'm not Greek rather Italian
00:22:20.490 --> 00:22:24.600
Matteo Sisto: And English is not my first language and I make a lot of mistakes all the time.
00:22:25.290 --> 00:22:35.070
Matteo Sisto: If for any reason you would prefer to reply or to give a comment in your mother told you can directly speak with my colleague and Co. She is one of the participants.
00:22:35.490 --> 00:22:43.530
Matteo Sisto: That it says available for any questions during the presentation or to translate or to help the translation with your comments and queries.
00:22:44.190 --> 00:22:51.630
Matteo Sisto: So without further ado I introduce you to quickly share everything you always wanted to know about tech and nonprofit, but we're afraid to ask.
00:22:52.500 --> 00:23:01.380
Matteo Sisto: Or rephrasing the wonderful Woody Allen movie. So I always start to the menu, just to give an idea what is going to happen to the people that are following me.
00:23:01.770 --> 00:23:11.730
Matteo Sisto: So like, I'm going to first introduce you a bit about net square, who is this organization and what is doing all over the world and why you decided to become a member
00:23:13.260 --> 00:23:19.530
Matteo Sisto: We're going to go through a bit on using zoo and introduce each other. Breaking the ice.
00:23:20.910 --> 00:23:34.080
Matteo Sisto: I'm going to tell you a bit about what is a digital nonprofits and how digital transformation has had an impact not only in the big corporations in the business world, but like is having a huge impact also nonprofit organization.
00:23:34.530 --> 00:23:46.590
Matteo Sisto: Then we're going to go through work of them work affair is a very simple participatory methodology in which ideally we would have had three table and we're going to a would have had
00:23:47.970 --> 00:23:50.850
Matteo Sisto: Different discussions on different tables and we would have which
00:23:52.020 --> 00:24:05.550
Matteo Sisto: Considering that we are not so many people. And we're online. I think we can definitely just go one question by the other. And so at the end of this of this events or make a small wrap up and tell you
00:24:07.080 --> 00:24:27.180
Matteo Sisto: If by any chance you guys want to stay a bit with me after the then there is usually, you know, like a social moment in this event. So if you fear to share a virtual deal with me. I'm more than happy to speak with you at the end of this talk and now move to this other screen hopefully
00:24:29.820 --> 00:24:30.810
Matteo Sisto: He seen
00:24:33.900 --> 00:24:35.880
This one. Sure.
00:24:37.770 --> 00:24:38.550
Matteo Sisto: Can you see here.
00:24:45.120 --> 00:24:57.390
Matteo Sisto: So as I was telling you this is an event under the umbrella of net squared x squared is a global network of events and digital transformation workshops, brought to you by texture texture is one of the biggest
00:24:58.980 --> 00:25:11.040
Matteo Sisto: nonprofit organization that is trying to bridge the gap between big software to users and artwork producers in the world with nonprofit organization. If you don't know about that. It's a great
00:25:12.180 --> 00:25:30.930
Matteo Sisto: It's a great venture because they offer a lot of free services. So discounted software to nonprofit organizations all over the world here in Greece. This is not very well developed yet but like in other countries in Europe on they offer a whole numbers of software. So what is next squared.
00:25:31.950 --> 00:25:33.810
Matteo Sisto: Down so
00:25:35.340 --> 00:25:41.580
Matteo Sisto: It's a place for nonprofits stuffers as a hope many of you are fundamentally like nonprofits.
00:25:42.090 --> 00:25:51.450
Matteo Sisto: Suffers nonprofit employees people that work in nonprofit organizations volunteer will find a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for those who are experienced with technology.
00:25:51.900 --> 00:25:58.860
Matteo Sisto: And will have many chances to ask questions or two tough questions and understand better how to use technology.
00:25:59.850 --> 00:26:13.230
Matteo Sisto: It's also a place for technologists and consultants and because there are people that we find opportunities to do to get your expertise, the social cues, as well as the potential for lasting relationship.
00:26:14.310 --> 00:26:24.450
Matteo Sisto: And so I Mattel, as I was saying before, I'm your local next squared organizer there a program of tech soup and. NET square is a global network of tech focused Meetup.
00:26:24.960 --> 00:26:33.330
Matteo Sisto: It's nonprofits that help other nonprofits to get implement and you spec effectively, fundamentally, this is the map that shows where is
00:26:33.780 --> 00:26:47.610
Matteo Sisto: Not squared at the moment you see there is still no doc on Greece, but we finally open up this is the first event happening in Greece, and I'm really proud to be you know here and being able to speak with you all.
00:26:50.370 --> 00:26:59.400
Matteo Sisto: Those are the community values of network fundamental in a squared is a community based organization. We should like all volunteers like me and have
00:27:00.090 --> 00:27:12.060
Matteo Sisto: A bit of support from the mother of organization in the US. And those are our values, we welcome everyone. We put community. First, we're here to support each other.
00:27:12.750 --> 00:27:22.110
Matteo Sisto: And we build stronger nonprofits and technologies have one or more invite participation as I told you before, like this is
00:27:22.530 --> 00:27:34.020
Matteo Sisto: It's meant to be a participatory workshop. So everyone in this room in this online group will have something to learn or something to contribute with, and most importantly, for me, we treat each other with kindness and respect.
00:27:36.810 --> 00:27:55.890
Matteo Sisto: Okay, it's a voluntary organization. We need your help. You know, like anyone can plan an event. I am not an expert in event planning. I'm not a marketer. I don't have any of these qualifications or like it's some it's a space for people who are, you know, happy to share and happy to

Eli van der Giessen: For every eligible nonprofit and to basically make sure that you're eligible for that. All you need to do is go to tech stoops website.

Eli van der Giessen: Create your free account. And once you've done that they give you a special little code that you'll use when you apply on Google's website to prove that you're a valid nonprofit and pretty much any
00:29:50.970 --> 00:29:56.460
Eli van der Giessen: charitable organization that is legally registered in the country should be eligible for the program.
00:29:57.180 --> 00:30:03.930

00:33:03.270 --> 00:33:10.260
Matteo Sisto: To the other slide and continue with our today's so
00:33:11.700 --> 00:33:22.290
Matteo Sisto: We're at the menu. Just gonna go through some rules for housekeeping. So like to call them so fundamentally Zoom is it fantastic to
00:33:22.980 --> 00:33:34.140
Matteo Sisto: But we need to have some rules. So there was we go crazy and one of that is mute your microphone when others are speaking for them. The suit. Everybody's too in depth. So that's very well. Don't forget to

00:34:07.230 --> 00:34:14.790
Matteo Sisto: Feel free to use emoticons and reaction to signal your life so that like I don't feel too crazy so
00:34:15.780 --> 00:34:25.770
Matteo Sisto: We moved to introductions. Um, let's take some time to get to know each other a bit. So we'll sing before the participatory events. We use a simple prompt
00:34:26.100 --> 00:34:38.160
Matteo Sisto: To break the ice and you know gain a bit of ideas on who you are. I would like each of you to fill the gap and go sentence, I will call your name, or you can, you know,
00:34:38.640 --> 00:34:47.100
Matteo Sisto: And you can unmute and start you can literally say whatever you want, or fill don't take too much brain power on that as we will need it later on.
00:34:48.390 --> 00:34:55.680
Matteo Sisto: Okay, this is the prompts. As you can see, Hello, my name is Mark Dale and my superpower is curiosity.
00:34:58.500 --> 00:35:00.060
Matteo Sisto: Anybody wants to open up
00:35:01.320 --> 00:35:04.140
Matteo Sisto: Feel free to unmute yourself and start
00:36:03.750 --> 00:36:14.220
Δημήτρης_Θεοδωρόπουλος_ΦΡΟΝΤΙΖΩ: Yes, yes. My name is Dimitri, Sam from address from an NGO calling for these numbers will perish to unite people for a common purpose.
00:39:10.170 --> 00:39:21.600
Athanasia Bartzoka: Social business consultant in color, drop your support center for social economy blessed lives of the, the key, the key and your superpower is that she has a very good communication with animals.
00:39:24.870 --> 00:39:36.870
Matteo Sisto: That's fantastic. So if there is no other person that wants to participate in this more moments we're going to go to the next slide that like is going to introduce a bit more. The topic.
00:39:37.890 --> 00:39:46.560
Matteo Sisto: Okay, like so. The objective of today, fundamentally, as I was saying this is the first of other events of a series of events that I'm organizing
00:39:47.460 --> 00:39:57.570
Matteo Sisto: And I like to make things as clear and transparent as possible. So we've been like quite positive in my life to be orange and to go straight to the point. So I'm not going to change that.
00:39:58.560 --> 00:40:10.350
Matteo Sisto: Said the objective for today is developing together this most useful and rather than learning path for you, meaning that like how I can help you guys
00:40:11.070 --> 00:40:20.820
Matteo Sisto: As a nonprofit professionals to get a little bit more technological by the end of this workshop. So fundamentally, I believe that technology is an enabler.
00:40:21.300 --> 00:40:31.590
Matteo Sisto: And like if we use that correctly, it can really do a lot of wonderful like our organization and eventually to our employees. So this is like a
00:40:32.190 --> 00:40:40.590
Matteo Sisto: Flight that I wanted to remember that we create a technology, you know, like it's not the other way around. We don't need to be scared or three times can be a bit
00:40:41.310 --> 00:40:50.790
Matteo Sisto: Hard to access like it's it's not always the case. And like the more technology is progressing and the more it's becoming easy to use a face to the basic level.
00:40:52.920 --> 00:41:03.600
Matteo Sisto: So this is an older moments of participation. We're going to use a simple to that is called word cloud. I don't know if you're familiar with that and
00:41:04.770 --> 00:41:13.350
Matteo Sisto: It's going to be to write up something on a screen. So I would like you guys to tell me. What are you here for
00:41:14.160 --> 00:41:25.080
Matteo Sisto: And like in order to do that, you can either follow the QR code that is here. Like if you take a picture of that you will be brought directly to the word cloud or otherwise.
00:41:25.500 --> 00:41:42.150
Matteo Sisto: Maybe either in this moment, I can directly linked here with this. That is the page with all the directions. So if you go to medical com and like input the code 5683 to seven. You can reply to those questions.
00:42:23.070 --> 00:42:33.570
Matteo Sisto: Three minutes. I think it's going to be more than enough for you to find the time I'll just check a bit that Chuck. If anybody has some problem.
00:42:34.740 --> 00:42:36.690
Matteo Sisto: Still need to
00:42:39.270 --> 00:42:42.000
Matteo Sisto: Do with the sitter, somebody is taking advantage of
00:42:44.220 --> 00:42:44.880
Matteo Sisto: Of the tool.
00:42:47.670 --> 00:42:57.480
Matteo Sisto: That's good. You know, like a word cloud fundamentally like will highlight the words that are more use like what's right, we automatically create this nice view.
00:43:01.140 --> 00:43:01.920
Matteo Sisto: Shop in
00:43:43.170 --> 00:43:46.530
Matteo Sisto: One more minute, just for everybody to show something
00:43:47.970 --> 00:43:52.380
Matteo Sisto: But is pretty clear that all of you want to learn and get support.
00:43:58.230 --> 00:43:58.560
Matteo Sisto: To do it.
00:44:08.160 --> 00:44:15.240
Matteo Sisto: So I'm so I'm personally I'm here because I like to share my very limited knowledge around them tech work.
00:44:15.660 --> 00:44:28.500
Matteo Sisto: To improve the impact of nonprofit organization. And because I want to understand better who you are. What are your challenges as nonprofit organization and how it can help you. So this is why I'm here today and why I created this whole event.
00:45:00.720 --> 00:45:04.500
Matteo Sisto: I think everybody has a chance to write up something
00:45:07.920 --> 00:45:16.110
Matteo Sisto: We continue with our presentation. So we're going to dive down into a big topic of today, that is nonprofit and technology.
00:45:16.650 --> 00:45:28.860
Matteo Sisto: Okay, so what's the deal. Why am pushing nonprofit organization to consider is so vital to their work done. So everything starts with digital transformation. What's that
00:45:29.940 --> 00:45:41.400
Matteo Sisto: Are you familiar with discomfort concerts. It is actually a big fuss, as I like to say, um, it is something to start by taking into consideration the environment around us.
00:45:41.760 --> 00:45:48.900
Matteo Sisto: The word have changed. We are now living in a period that is defined and shaped by our use of technology. Okay.
00:45:49.650 --> 00:46:03.360
Matteo Sisto: smarter people than me would call it the digital age from this consideration we need to rethink and reimagine how organizations can be able to navigate and succeed in this ever changing environment. So this is
00:46:04.650 --> 00:46:12.870
Matteo Sisto: The definition that tech soup. They're going to Nationals telling you about before us when he speaks about digital transformation. So fundamentally, I'd like you to
00:46:14.550 --> 00:46:22.950
Matteo Sisto: Concentrate your focus on three aspects, the adoption of digital technology to create new processes and cultures. Okay.
00:46:25.140 --> 00:46:31.740
Matteo Sisto: So digital transformation fundamentally begins and ends with how you think and engage with
00:46:33.210 --> 00:46:34.860
Matteo Sisto: Your, your beneficiaries.
00:46:36.810 --> 00:46:45.000
Matteo Sisto: As we move from paper to spreadsheets to smart application for managing our organization. We have the chance to reimagine how we do things.
00:46:45.420 --> 00:47:03.540
Matteo Sisto: How we engage our community, you know, donors beneficiaries volunteers with pic with digital technology on our side as we embark on a digital transformation many organizations are taking a step back to ask whether they are really doing the right thing in terms of processes in 10 so
00:47:05.790 --> 00:47:08.160
Matteo Sisto: services offered in terms of a lot of things.
00:47:09.240 --> 00:47:18.690
Matteo Sisto: The first thing you should do is to understand what is possible with digital transformation. That is what I'm trying to, you know, give you a very, very glimpse overview and
00:47:19.800 --> 00:47:33.090
Matteo Sisto: To reiterate, just to take that seems to like small things digital transformation. So fundamentally, it's not only the adoption of technology, even though it's facilitated by technology. It is a radical change.
00:47:34.560 --> 00:47:38.880
Matteo Sisto: Because we need to review the way of doing things, because the things have changed.
00:47:41.910 --> 00:47:49.920
Matteo Sisto: And, you know, like there is some. There's a lot of people that are not very tech enthusiasts, as I am and I totally understand that.
00:47:50.280 --> 00:47:59.430
Matteo Sisto: However, not taking action is not a good idea. I don't know if you're familiar with this sentence, not from Darwin, but it's very strong points, nonetheless.
00:47:59.970 --> 00:48:13.710
Matteo Sisto: It is not the strongest of the species that survives nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change. I don't know if you ever heard about called duck. If you are as old as me, or like maybe a bit older.
00:48:14.790 --> 00:48:26.820
Matteo Sisto: You will have known Kodak who was like one of the biggest firm in the word selling film for pictures for, you know, like I'm not logical cameras.
00:48:27.840 --> 00:48:44.250
Matteo Sisto: Around the 1980s, something like that their innovation departments managed to create the first digital camera and like that would have been a revolution for them. The big problem is that, you know, as many innovation of certain points in time.
00:48:45.510 --> 00:48:56.520
Matteo Sisto: They weren't ready and since they saw that as a competitor to their own products they decided to kill this innovation and, you know,
00:48:57.390 --> 00:49:10.230
Matteo Sisto: Correct. Now it's a failed company that has been closed for more than 10 years as far as I remember. And it's not a good idea not to take action. So please remember that and
00:49:11.370 --> 00:49:21.360
Matteo Sisto: I been speaking with a lot of nonprofit organizations about death and there is always three big concerns that arise from know mentally. Let's take a look at that, together, we don't have enough time.
00:49:22.260 --> 00:49:31.140
Matteo Sisto: So every nonprofit feel this way and I agree, the great in one sense it's true. If you had more people, more time. You can do incredible work.
00:49:32.040 --> 00:49:43.380
Matteo Sisto: This is actually why innovation and technology. It's so important, your big idea my tree up hundreds of stuff or volunteer, how're that can be applied to more critical issues.
00:49:44.970 --> 00:49:52.500
Matteo Sisto: For example, a domestic abuse organization created a new report in a system system to provide information to external professional
00:49:53.280 --> 00:50:02.550
Matteo Sisto: Those officers have been reaching out to staff member one of the time whenever they need information. Now, they get the information more quickly sending both sides. A lot of time.
00:50:03.150 --> 00:50:10.440
Matteo Sisto: Understand that it's easy to get caught in the Bailey has to have getting work done. I do it myself as well too many times.
00:50:10.830 --> 00:50:22.620
Matteo Sisto: But sometimes just investing an hour to step back and think about the challenge can help you find ways to address that challenge and free up a lot of valuable time. So this is not an excuse
00:50:23.430 --> 00:50:38.430
Matteo Sisto: We don't have enough money okay this again like another big trend fundamentally yeah all nonprofits organizations are usually cast streets. I've been working with loads of them that I've zero budget, but it doesn't mean that you know
00:50:39.690 --> 00:50:42.390
Matteo Sisto: You don't have the resources, he
00:50:43.770 --> 00:50:50.220
Matteo Sisto: Says psychologists have recently identified an interesting phenomenon called the scarcity mindset, essentially it is a come
00:50:50.820 --> 00:50:59.460
Matteo Sisto: Kind of tunnel vision that the marriage were used to focus on something you like. They don't look what you do and neglect older important thing
00:51:00.150 --> 00:51:06.660
Matteo Sisto: So consider the house assets, your nonprofit as beyond money your money they have talented committed people
00:51:07.170 --> 00:51:16.020
Matteo Sisto: You have enthusiasm behind your mission you have tools that can be used in your way, innovation and technology does not necessarily require a lot of money.
00:51:16.620 --> 00:51:20.820
Matteo Sisto: Especially because like there is a lot of great organization like tech soup or like other big
00:51:21.510 --> 00:51:32.010
Matteo Sisto: Software developers that are giving their software out for free to nonprofit organization or very, very highly discounted third one. We don't have the expertise.
00:51:32.790 --> 00:51:38.520
Matteo Sisto: Do you need to be an expert to be an innovator. This is the big question. I'm not necessarily
00:51:38.910 --> 00:51:52.650
Matteo Sisto: You know, like, sometimes the best ideas come from people who aren't experts, because they're not so quick to think about the limitation of an idea general knowledge and a sense of curiosity are incredibly, incredibly useful for innovation.
00:51:54.090 --> 00:52:10.620
Matteo Sisto: In like any new endeavor technology implementation can be risky and the sender, but if you consider the risks up front and the potential benefits might derive Autodesk you'll often find that the risk is more than working so try to innovate.
00:52:12.030 --> 00:52:13.260
Matteo Sisto: So what is fundamentally
00:52:14.520 --> 00:52:23.670
Matteo Sisto: technology. Technology is an enabler that supports since their actual time if something that supports human beings to do more with less.
00:52:24.180 --> 00:52:29.250
Matteo Sisto: So this is why I'm stressing so much that nonprofit organization like start using this technology.
00:52:29.520 --> 00:52:40.350
Matteo Sisto: And these tools, the resources that are available. It's like, it's so important. Our work and why it's so important that we can free up some volunteers time from time to do really critical work and not just
00:52:40.710 --> 00:52:50.610
Matteo Sisto: inputting data from a piece of paper into a computer. This is just like not necessary, and like, I'm pretty sure that all of you have done that in recent time
00:52:51.630 --> 00:52:57.000
Matteo Sisto: So this is a graph that fundamentally explains a bit how digital transformation work.
00:52:58.260 --> 00:53:07.740
Matteo Sisto: Team like this is not a timeline, but it's something that happens organically. This is a circle and it starts at the very center. I like it. Ever since then we have the people
00:53:08.190 --> 00:53:19.350
Matteo Sisto: You cannot bring forward digital transformation. If you don't consider your people. It's the most important factor like associated with that. Those are some benefits. You can see on the right. So,
00:53:20.490 --> 00:53:29.820
Matteo Sisto: It starts with behavior change like can support collaboration across the organization or like a change in organizational model to be more lean and like be able to deliver a better
00:53:30.270 --> 00:53:42.540
Matteo Sisto: Service in less time then it goes to processes. It can be about how we measure things or how we collect certain data and then it goes up to the platform. There is
00:53:43.200 --> 00:53:54.510
Matteo Sisto: The technology, per se. And those are all interesting on content that we can use them so constitution relationship manager fantastic tool that supports the communication between
00:53:55.770 --> 00:54:00.810
Matteo Sisto: You as a nonprofit organization and all your beneficiaries or your stakeholders.
00:54:01.830 --> 00:54:17.970
Matteo Sisto: So, so I'm not going to go through all the infinite possibilities that there are through technology. But I try to keep up a broad overview, what are the tools that I consider important and that I know have a very strong discounts. I see you heard before. From my life, my
00:54:19.980 --> 00:54:39.210
Matteo Sisto: Say like the big mother organization like recently Google for Nonprofits arrived in Chris. This is a great thing I'm going to tell you a bit more about that later on during our conversation, but like, I'll just give you some ideas on how to use some of those
00:54:40.980 --> 00:54:50.580
Matteo Sisto: So if you feel like you need to improve internal communication or team collaboration at your organization. Those are simple tools that you can use, like it's what's up.
00:54:51.330 --> 00:55:02.250
Matteo Sisto: Business telegram slack Facebook workplace or like if you're more into organizing of touch with a lot of free software like fellow Asana myself the support
00:55:03.780 --> 00:55:13.350
Matteo Sisto: The vision of all the tasks that the organization needs to do, and providing checklist and due dates that will really help you to deliver better your
00:55:14.190 --> 00:55:26.580
Matteo Sisto: Service try. Of course we all know Google Drive as reliable thing though, like, now we have also Google for Nonprofits you increase it means that we have the chance to obsess on the business account fundamentally
00:55:27.630 --> 00:55:31.590
Matteo Sisto: That supports the creation of infinite emails that supports the creation
00:55:33.270 --> 00:55:35.100
Matteo Sisto: There is a lot of features behind that.
00:55:38.310 --> 00:55:54.930
Matteo Sisto: Or you might be more interested in improving the external communication. You know, like digital marketing is one of the first things that can be improved on, you know, nonprofit organization through technology. And the reason is very simple to use, like MailChimp or WordPress.
00:55:56.100 --> 00:56:14.790
Matteo Sisto: Hootsuite and buffer our social media manager tools that will support the scheduling the analytics of all your social media posting at the grant. This is a tool from Google that works with the CEO and like it will support your, your commercial your

Matteo Sisto: Different tool like Evans, right. This is a tool for events organization. So I just need to drink some water.
00:56:45.090 --> 00:56:54.840
Matteo Sisto: Okay, I was a bit, right. So, Evan bright is a software that supports every management at the same time is a great tool to raise money. This it supports.
00:56:56.760 --> 00:57:10.710
Matteo Sisto: The whole ticketing process and like it sends a reminder to your participants and loads of other automatic features that like we will lose time injuring people there is paper for nonprofits.

00:58:18.840 --> 00:58:35.100
Matteo Sisto: Some products that you want to auction, you pay for charity will get a discount out of their usual fee and combines another fantastic few that are used to create graphics and like again completely free for nonprofit organizations also the pro version.
00:58:36.390 --> 00:58:46.050
Matteo Sisto: Lastly, I will improve direction it with donors beneficiaries and volunteers, there is 500 1000 different ways to create a database.
00:58:46.920 --> 00:58:57.420
Matteo Sisto: And like a database will support the whole process of communication and like putting down dates people who you met and in this way you will be able to
00:58:58.230 --> 00:59:06.480
Matteo Sisto: Gather those data and use those data in order to improve both your communication or your fundraising effort.
00:59:07.440 --> 00:59:28.050
Matteo Sisto: volunteer management. I don't know if you guys work with volunteers or use volunteers in your daily activities or whatever. But like there is the software that like will support the whole on tasking or training or asking for feedback or organizing and scheduling all
00:59:29.190 --> 00:59:47.550
Matteo Sisto: The work of the volunteers serum out speaking about this before I software that does a lot of things. I'm not going to go into details very much but I strongly suggest you guys take a look at that. And then there is the whole analytics and data points so fundamentally
00:59:48.570 --> 00:59:52.440
Matteo Sisto: Since the word is getting more digital data are becoming more
00:59:53.370 --> 01:00:03.690
Matteo Sisto: Prevalent everywhere. And one of the first tenants of digital transformation, it is to be user centric, meaning that like we can really target people
01:00:04.200 --> 01:00:11.790
Matteo Sisto: As we're speaking, meaning you can create a complete communication faith campaign that is targets.
01:00:12.390 --> 01:00:23.850
Matteo Sisto: On specific people because you have the data, you know that those people will respond better to certain thing and this is all possible through starting a digital transformation. You guys have any question right now.
01:00:25.710 --> 01:00:31.080
Matteo Sisto: We're going to have plenty of time to participate in the next on the next part.
01:00:33.330 --> 01:00:37.230
Matteo Sisto: But if you have any question that I should clarify. I had to Russia bit
01:00:38.280 --> 01:00:39.690
Katerina Matiatou: Of testing.
01:00:40.740 --> 01:00:40.920
Katerina Matiatou: On
01:00:42.570 --> 01:00:59.760
Matteo Sisto: Okay, so you have two options, fundamentally, you take the blue pill and the story ends here you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe you can take the red pill, you stay in wonderful Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes it's
01:01:00.870 --> 01:01:10.260
Matteo Sisto: You know, I, meaning that you need to take your decision. I strongly am a big supporter of technology in nonprofit organization, but it's up to you.
01:01:10.890 --> 01:01:21.330
Matteo Sisto: I think I gave you an idea why it's important to me. So now we're going to move into the World Cup and we're going to be discussing three big questions that are related to, you know,
01:01:25.800 --> 01:01:35.700
Matteo Sisto: If you have any tools that you're using at the moment it feel important for you. What are the challenges your organization is experiencing and
01:01:38.040 --> 01:01:46.470
Matteo Sisto: If you had anything you want to talk to me. So we're going to slow one question or the time I'm gonna be
01:01:47.700 --> 01:02:01.560
Matteo Sisto: I'm going to be opening the new slides with the question, and we're going to be timing this activity, just to be a bit more time you say a safe 20 minutes it's enough for each question and
01:02:11.340 --> 01:02:22.020
Matteo Sisto: So which tools do you use out your organization, the floor is yours. I'm just here to facilitate the discussion and to possibly listen to a lot of different people's opinion.
01:02:23.310 --> 01:02:24.330
Matteo Sisto: Nobody wants to start
01:02:43.980 --> 01:02:48.120
Δημήτρης Μουρατίδης: So for our organization, we used to use GC.
01:05:04.710 --> 01:05:08.940
Matteo Sisto: It's almost like they're having problems to pick the person they're using workspace.
01:05:12.030 --> 01:05:13.560
Matteo Sisto: Anybody else want to chip in
01:05:14.160 --> 01:05:27.150
Panos Antonopoulos: And hello hello again. I'm sorry. So, okay, intermediate to where technology also we use we use many tools and we try many tools every day.
01:05:28.650 --> 01:05:41.550
Panos Antonopoulos: But, you know, in one main one and say a yeah we use that whole office 365 or for Microsoft and, you know, we sold the tools that
01:05:42.810 --> 01:05:50.070
Panos Antonopoulos: Teams calendar. One Drive a tasks flow you know everything, all that and
01:05:51.210 --> 01:05:53.340
Panos Antonopoulos: Yeah. What else, of course.
01:05:54.540 --> 01:06:00.150
Panos Antonopoulos: Some Google some some Google tools and about the project management. We use fried chicken.
01:06:01.530 --> 01:06:02.580
Panos Antonopoulos: The last few years.
01:06:03.030 --> 01:06:03.990
Matteo Sisto: We read come
01:06:04.470 --> 01:06:13.800
Panos Antonopoulos: Freedom. Yes, I can write it. Yeah, it's yeah like that. The I'd say also a free for for NGOs.
01:06:14.520 --> 01:06:17.370
Matteo Sisto: Okay, I didn't know about that. I knew about base camp.
01:06:17.520 --> 01:06:18.300
Matteo Sisto: But a nice down
01:06:18.810 --> 01:06:19.110
Panos Antonopoulos: When you
01:06:19.470 --> 01:06:20.610
Panos Antonopoulos: Have used based on to
01:06:20.940 --> 01:06:21.540
Panos Antonopoulos: So, and
01:06:22.110 --> 01:06:22.530
Panos Antonopoulos: You know,
01:06:23.760 --> 01:06:37.320
Panos Antonopoulos: Web also use open source platforms like WordPress or a WordPress or Moodle and not anymore. But yeah, this is about office management. This is what do you use
01:06:38.250 --> 01:06:41.550
Matteo Sisto: And like you said your attack NGO, I mean like
01:06:42.660 --> 01:06:46.710
Matteo Sisto: What, what kind of activity. Do you, do you guys
01:06:47.370 --> 01:06:49.140
Panos Antonopoulos: Actually, we realize
01:06:51.000 --> 01:06:53.580
Panos Antonopoulos: Tools for for knowledge transfer web
01:06:54.810 --> 01:06:58.650
Panos Antonopoulos: Applications storytelling tools, things like that.
01:06:59.460 --> 01:07:00.120
Matteo Sisto: And we raised
01:07:00.540 --> 01:07:06.300
Panos Antonopoulos: We must love open source of course we are open to do everything by themselves.
01:07:07.350 --> 01:07:11.220
Matteo Sisto: But that's really interesting and can ask you something about office 365
01:07:12.150 --> 01:07:14.070
Matteo Sisto: He showed them.
01:07:14.640 --> 01:07:21.960
Matteo Sisto: The analytical tools. I recently had a quite interesting experience with them, you know, like the dashboard and
01:07:22.860 --> 01:07:27.180
Matteo Sisto: The visual visually. She's like di fundamental the business intelligence tools.
01:07:32.340 --> 01:07:33.690
Panos Antonopoulos: Yeah, so
01:07:34.860 --> 01:07:36.000
Panos Antonopoulos: There was a question there.
01:07:37.200 --> 01:07:44.040
Matteo Sisto: Yeah, me like I was asking if you use it and like in case he uses that would have asked you, you know, how, how it's going with the data and like the whole thing.
01:07:44.880 --> 01:07:58.080
Panos Antonopoulos: Okay, that was tricky. To be honest, I will try it, but I'm not quite. Not quite sure. And yet, because we we were accustomed to Google Analytics.
01:08:00.930 --> 01:08:08.130
Panos Antonopoulos: And it's really difficult to to to make a transition from one to this is specific to the other.
01:08:12.750 --> 01:08:13.020
Matteo Sisto: Or you
01:08:14.280 --> 01:08:15.030
Panos Antonopoulos: Know in the future.
01:08:19.530 --> 01:08:20.820
Matteo Sisto: Anybody else want to chip in
01:08:35.160 --> 01:08:35.400
Matteo Sisto: Are you
01:08:43.020 --> 01:08:53.520
Katerina Matiatou: From Higgs. Um, well, I'm actually amazed within their media well done guys. Have a jealous. So we use
01:08:54.960 --> 01:08:56.550
Katerina Matiatou: Will all the G. Sweet. The
01:08:58.140 --> 01:09:00.030
Katerina Matiatou: Features and the Microsoft
01:09:02.040 --> 01:09:15.210
Katerina Matiatou: Office tools. We also have kind of recently started using slack. So it's taking up some time for us to adjust. But I think in the long run will really help. Um,
01:09:16.230 --> 01:09:32.430
Katerina Matiatou: What else, who do we use. Well, we do have the library in the newsletter male chimps and stuff, but I don't think they're relevant. I'm not sure if they're relevant right now. And of course, the social media. I think that more or less. These are the ones that we mostly use
01:09:42.900 --> 01:09:43.560
Matteo Sisto: heard the voice.
01:09:44.730 --> 01:09:46.230
Stamatia K.: Yeah, I'm stomach dia
01:09:47.340 --> 01:10:04.620
Stamatia K.: Mila yeah we are from the Erasmus to the network of Greece and we use a couple of the mentioned ones like the sweet. We have tried a semi trailer. Now we're trying out notion
01:10:05.820 --> 01:10:11.850
Stamatia K.: We have applied for the office 365 because they have a really good
01:10:15.390 --> 01:10:25.350
Stamatia K.: Kind of thing where you you can learn about how to use Excel, PowerPoint and word better like they show you
01:10:26.970 --> 01:10:38.850
Stamatia K.: Some features, um, other than that, we have the canvas for NGOs and when it comes to our website and our services that we have
01:10:39.690 --> 01:11:03.030
Stamatia K.: Because we have a couple of them were really we are quite young people in the organization. So it's like ages 2225 so we are we like to do things online. And since we are all over Europe we. It's the only way we can communicate. So we have invested in a lot of those things and we use
01:11:04.080 --> 01:11:04.680
Stamatia K.: The
01:11:06.300 --> 01:11:14.310
Stamatia K.: The Amazon Web Services and the Microsoft for our servers and things like that.
01:11:14.880 --> 01:11:15.360
01:11:17.220 --> 01:11:19.950
Matteo Sisto: Can you tell me a bit because like I never use
01:11:21.090 --> 01:11:28.800
Matteo Sisto: Maybe AWS Amazon Web Services like I had no idea what they can to commit bit about that. Well,
01:11:28.860 --> 01:11:30.420
Stamatia K.: Basically it
01:11:32.250 --> 01:11:44.250
Stamatia K.: You can manage your servers. From there, and the cost for NGOs, if I am correct is like 10 cents per month. It's not really
01:11:44.340 --> 01:11:45.360
Matteo Sisto: Expensive than
01:11:48.450 --> 01:11:51.120
Matteo Sisto: That's pretty great. Like, how much space do you have
01:11:53.760 --> 01:11:57.420
Stamatia K.: I have, I will have to look it up, that we have
01:11:58.500 --> 01:12:01.080
Stamatia K.: A lot of websites and a lot of data.
01:12:02.220 --> 01:12:13.290
Stamatia K.: That we host, we have like seven websites. Also, we use the panel for other management.
01:12:15.210 --> 01:12:16.920
Matteo Sisto: For the CMS for the
01:12:18.660 --> 01:12:19.410
Matteo Sisto: And everything
01:12:19.980 --> 01:12:31.770
Stamatia K.: And we have, yeah. Also, our local sections. They use it for their email and the more national level uses G sweet for our email.
01:12:35.130 --> 01:12:35.880
Matteo Sisto: Thank you for sharing.
01:12:37.980 --> 01:12:39.300
Matteo Sisto: Anybody else want to chip in
01:12:40.620 --> 01:12:41.910
Spyros Tsoukalas: Yes, I would like to add that
01:12:43.680 --> 01:12:44.730
Spyros Tsoukalas: I'm spirits, I
01:12:45.870 --> 01:13:02.370
Spyros Tsoukalas: introduced myself. Very good. So, um, as far as our, our organization is concerned were quite small. So for now, we usually use our personal accounts and the free tools that are available for people not a NGOs, so the word that
01:13:03.750 --> 01:13:09.180
Spyros Tsoukalas: When I go to expose personally would expose to texture and they realized how many tools.
01:13:10.200 --> 01:13:15.600
Spyros Tsoukalas: We can use and get benefit from them because they are free for NGOs and got really impressed.
01:13:16.200 --> 01:13:23.670
Spyros Tsoukalas: For now, I haven't made that transition yet, but I would like to add a couple of tools that might be useful for others of course like Dropbox isn't obvious.
01:13:24.660 --> 01:13:35.280
Spyros Tsoukalas: Solution that many people might use but they it hasn't been mentioned yet Dropbox and apart from the ones that have already been mentioned, I think that project.
01:13:36.120 --> 01:13:49.440
Spyros Tsoukalas: loon noun is a database of free icons that can be used these Lee everywhere and it's called Project and noun and noun spelled us no un
01:13:50.370 --> 01:14:11.700
Spyros Tsoukalas: And also totally I recently made the conversion for the company. I was tempted by their advertisement and I bought the subscription for life. It's called totally at the low and why and it helps you make animated leaders.
01:14:12.750 --> 01:14:14.700
Spyros Tsoukalas: So we are planning to use it.
01:14:15.840 --> 01:14:16.320
Spyros Tsoukalas: For
01:14:17.970 --> 01:14:23.310
Spyros Tsoukalas: Short videos that explain to our users, how to use our tools and what to do, how
01:14:24.360 --> 01:14:25.830
Spyros Tsoukalas: Etc. Now,
01:14:26.130 --> 01:14:29.970
Matteo Sisto: There is another very interesting tools like this one, you mentioned right now.
01:14:31.080 --> 01:14:46.260
Matteo Sisto: That supports you know like also for very bad graphic designer or like people with zero artistic touches. I am like to create videos that are engaging or like animation. And this is what well no, Tom. I don't know the software.
01:14:46.890 --> 01:14:55.050
Spyros Tsoukalas: To only it's only 12 as well as another tool that I have heard that haven't used it and the one that we use is called only Tw O n and why
01:14:58.350 --> 01:15:03.720
Spyros Tsoukalas: If you start digging on tools that are available because I come from the stop startup world there are like
01:15:04.830 --> 01:15:22.740
Spyros Tsoukalas: Many, many, many, many, like a beyond imagination numbers of tools that can be used and help you do stuff. But there's learning care, but you have to get through. And sometimes, as you mentioned earlier time or money is a is a factor of discouragement.
01:15:23.850 --> 01:15:33.450
Matteo Sisto: It is up to a certain extent, I mean like there isn't a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of discounts or free software that a free piece of software that
01:15:34.260 --> 01:15:40.830
Matteo Sisto: Are provided to nonprofit organization and like what they usually do you know like I i tend to contact the mother organization.
01:15:41.430 --> 01:15:50.190
Matteo Sisto: Trying to ask, you know, like I'm a non profit. I'm working for a non profit organization on. Can I use your software for a longer for your periods or like, can you give me a discount
01:15:50.520 --> 01:15:55.680
Matteo Sisto: But it doesn't cost anything to ask, like most of the time I had great success on that so
01:15:56.640 --> 01:16:02.940
Matteo Sisto: Don't be discouraged by that I know that's also a tool that like us becoming prominence in that develops.
01:16:03.480 --> 01:16:14.850
Matteo Sisto: Developers word is called the Twilio. I don't know if you guys heard about that fundamentally it's a bit complex and what it does but it supports them the ultimate decision or like
01:16:15.510 --> 01:16:29.640
Matteo Sisto: sending messages to multiple people and add loads of other things and they provide a huge discount on profit organization so he can start using it without any problem. Somebody else wants to share so that other people can be informed.
01:16:50.250 --> 01:17:03.900
Spyros Tsoukalas: At another organization, not through the one that my partner and I have established, we used to use base camp and we we contacted them to get it for free because it's very useful for
01:17:04.590 --> 01:17:19.920
Spyros Tsoukalas: Project Management and communication at the same time, but we couldn't get the discount more than 10% back then. And it was pretty expensive. So we stopped using it, but based on like it's very easy to use and in case somebody gets full access. It's like
01:17:22.440 --> 01:17:24.960
Spyros Tsoukalas: Your hands are no longer tied on that.
01:17:28.530 --> 01:17:36.420
Matteo Sisto: If I'm not mistaken, they improved their nonprofit offers. I don't remember the exact number, but like a
01:17:37.800 --> 01:17:53.550
Matteo Sisto: Piece a year ago I saw that there was like very good offer for nonprofit organizations so so with base camp and to the people that mentioned about MailChimp. You guys are using. I guess the free version or the paid one correct
01:18:03.690 --> 01:18:08.190
Matteo Sisto: Yeah, because like the pro version is a bit too expensive and
01:18:09.420 --> 01:18:12.810
Matteo Sisto: Somebody wants to share something else in terms of tools or like
01:18:15.270 --> 01:18:26.040
Matteo Sisto: Especially if you want to express I felt that local organization who spoke on had a lot of tech experience and like they can share with the other two don't have and
01:18:27.450 --> 01:18:36.120
Matteo Sisto: Especially if you had, you know, some positive experience or negative experience with technology. This is the right time to tell something about
01:18:39.870 --> 01:18:43.440
Lemonia Moraiti: Um, I would say that a handbook role.
01:18:44.670 --> 01:18:52.110
Lemonia Moraiti: Is I think a lifesaver. If you need to make graphics and you don't have a graphic designer or you don't know
01:18:53.340 --> 01:18:54.840
Lemonia Moraiti: How to do many things and
01:18:55.920 --> 01:19:05.370
Lemonia Moraiti: If you haven't tested it and you're looking for a way to make images, any kind of images, um, you should try it. Even the free version before you get
01:19:07.200 --> 01:19:09.510
Lemonia Moraiti: Like registered as an NGO is very useful.
01:19:11.100 --> 01:19:12.360
Matteo Sisto: I love come by so much
01:19:12.450 --> 01:19:16.380
Matteo Sisto: So much has helped me make like decent looking face.
01:19:17.280 --> 01:19:20.040
Matteo Sisto: Since a couple of years, and like I will never go back to something
01:19:20.040 --> 01:19:20.220
01:19:21.270 --> 01:19:28.680
Matteo Sisto: Really, really simple to you like you can do literally everything I think recently have introduced also animated
01:19:37.080 --> 01:19:51.420
Panos Antonopoulos: Um, can I add something panelists again because we mess on canvas and animations. We also use a platoon is a really nice and you may animation platform, of course, is not free.
01:19:52.650 --> 01:19:53.940
Panos Antonopoulos: I'm not sure it has
01:19:55.230 --> 01:20:09.030
Panos Antonopoulos: NGO discount. But this really has a free version of course, and it's really is a really user friendly and you can make a really amazing videos with templates or, you know, customize
01:20:14.070 --> 01:20:25.770
Spyros Tsoukalas: Some of the tools that we mentioned like platoon we used only instead of putting but the many tools offer a free trial when you start. So we tend to use different emails to start again the
01:20:26.220 --> 01:20:44.370
Spyros Tsoukalas: Free trial and get there. Get access again and again in the tools, but don't I have used in the past for a competition of we will be displayed with a video and I I I point out that because it will have used as well.
01:20:55.590 --> 01:21:07.650
Spyros Tsoukalas: We deal with language. So we tend to use language related tools which are kind of irrelevant for most organizations, but we have used their tools like glaus bath no longer speak.
01:21:09.960 --> 01:21:13.590
Spyros Tsoukalas: But they are usually free for free completely for free but
01:21:16.440 --> 01:21:19.470
Matteo Sisto: But that for translation like for websites or
01:21:20.460 --> 01:21:26.820
Spyros Tsoukalas: Another exactly we we deal with languages. So we need to get words in different we use them for translation and
01:21:28.020 --> 01:21:33.090
Spyros Tsoukalas: And transforming words from one alphabet to another and stuff like that.
01:21:36.690 --> 01:21:36.960
Matteo Sisto: But
01:21:37.200 --> 01:21:40.050
Spyros Tsoukalas: Usually such a relevant for us.
01:21:42.120 --> 01:21:49.620
Matteo Sisto: I mean like after you know after this conversation. Would you guys have put down my own suggestions and like I have a quite a big list.
01:21:50.160 --> 01:22:10.620
Matteo Sisto: Of tools that I use and use or just in general like I'll make it available to all of you. So we'll have we can have like a bigger pockets of knowledge. If you guys are fine with with this section, we can go a little bit down to what are the challenges that you're experiencing experiencing.
01:22:11.730 --> 01:22:21.600
Matteo Sisto: So what is your problem as a nonprofit organization as a non profit volunteer professional or whether it's your role.
01:22:23.970 --> 01:22:25.140
Matteo Sisto: What are you struggling with
01:22:27.300 --> 01:22:28.230
Matteo Sisto: The floor is open to you.
01:22:38.550 --> 01:22:51.420
Spyros Tsoukalas: I would like to address something that usually small organizations in the early steps that face and and it's a trust. So it's a long process until you start
01:22:52.080 --> 01:23:05.190
Spyros Tsoukalas: Having results and deliver results in order to receive trust from bigger organizations that are able to help you to get there to the next stage is, for example, we got established in September.
01:23:05.670 --> 01:23:20.160
Spyros Tsoukalas: And since then, I have written many proposals participate in programs, etc. So, and a big consideration for that. It's something that I realized later after founding the organization that you have to build a
01:23:22.350 --> 01:23:38.100
Spyros Tsoukalas: Footprint before you start getting into real projects on or it's a business in a way. So it's something that many organizations like Higgs a help you fight and
01:23:39.600 --> 01:24:02.970
Spyros Tsoukalas: Thank you for that. Katrina and the other members of the team and the trust is not only a matter when you are participating. When you look for corporations in from other organizations, but in order to even participating in programs, you have to start from Larry Really low and really small.
01:24:04.440 --> 01:24:15.900
Spyros Tsoukalas: Proposals or tenders and then start getting into bigger ones for us know how we will probably participating a bigger one. But then we have to have worked a lot until we reach that states.
01:24:16.500 --> 01:24:28.260
Spyros Tsoukalas: And it would be nice if there was some kind of community helping or coordinating NGOs that are small in order to get into programs with bigger ones and stuff like that.
01:24:29.820 --> 01:24:44.730
Matteo Sisto: Well, this sounds really really interesting actually like to do to support the networking and participation of the creation of trust the beginning of every stage organization really, really beautiful.
01:24:45.780 --> 01:24:53.670
Spyros Tsoukalas: An example is that if you get introduced in their organization and you earn their trust, even for once, like it's a big of an opportunity for you to
01:24:54.570 --> 01:25:10.020
Spyros Tsoukalas: Get into a program start doing stuff and stop fighting to create a footprint that might be not that important in the beginning. So you get the opportunity to get directly into real projects and have real impact.
01:25:10.920 --> 01:25:17.820
Matteo Sisto: And I also feel that, like, come here. The Echo system is pretty different from local countries that I've worked in like
01:25:18.660 --> 01:25:36.780
Matteo Sisto: For example, donation private donation. It's very low. And I don't think it's a very big habit. So like it's really hard for startups nonprofit organizations to raise the initial money and to start getting interest from our community. That's what I had been reading about you guys confirm
01:25:38.700 --> 01:25:40.530
Matteo Sisto: Fundraising is not very well developed
01:25:42.930 --> 01:25:52.500
Spyros Tsoukalas: I would agree, but like something that the world is started taking into account in Greece is sustainable sustainability of the organizations that I
01:25:53.520 --> 01:26:01.050
Spyros Tsoukalas: Grow and exist because the thing that many organizations don't take that really take care of their model and how they
01:26:01.950 --> 01:26:12.750
Spyros Tsoukalas: Are trying to become sustainable in their future steps because it's good if you get money once or twice, but how we live you sustain your organization in the future steps.
01:26:13.320 --> 01:26:27.390
Spyros Tsoukalas: And I had the chance to get exposed to the Israeli echo system of nonprofits in November, and it really changed the way I perceive sustainability in nonprofit projects.
01:26:27.990 --> 01:26:34.230
Spyros Tsoukalas: At a very good example from them. I don't remember the organization's name, but they get, for example.
01:26:35.100 --> 01:26:42.300
Spyros Tsoukalas: And materials from kite surf and windsurf and then turn them into bags that they actually shell.
01:26:42.870 --> 01:26:53.820
Spyros Tsoukalas: And not only do they have an environmental impact through that because they sell so they actually get money back. And they reinvest but the people they hired to run this organization are people that come from.
01:26:55.230 --> 01:26:56.010
Spyros Tsoukalas: Oh, what's the word
01:26:59.400 --> 01:27:04.380
Spyros Tsoukalas: Not, not only even more specific and find the word, let me translate
01:27:12.120 --> 01:27:16.110
Spyros Tsoukalas: From play get a people that have a lead left the presentation.
01:27:16.950 --> 01:27:25.020
Spyros Tsoukalas: So they have a impacting two three aspects and at the same time they managed to be sustainable by selling the
01:27:25.140 --> 01:27:26.220
Spyros Tsoukalas: Products that they build
01:27:29.160 --> 01:27:36.720
Matteo Sisto: That's that's really positive like also employing the people actually in the production of these sorts of things. So it's really, really.
01:27:37.680 --> 01:27:50.910
Matteo Sisto: Interesting. I think there's like there is an organization. I don't know machine increase that it's called idea. Good idea that like works with homeless and like I think they do something similar with a newspapers that they
01:27:53.280 --> 01:28:04.650
Matteo Sisto: Recycle debts and create new products that then they will sell something that is you can also hear anybody else wants to say something on the challenges your organization is experiencing.
01:28:15.930 --> 01:28:18.390
Matteo Sisto: You'll have loads of fun.
01:28:37.530 --> 01:28:37.980
Panos Antonopoulos: And
01:28:39.060 --> 01:28:39.780
Panos Antonopoulos: That is funny.
01:28:41.850 --> 01:28:51.630
Panos Antonopoulos: You know, whatever. Of course, I think most of the majority of the organizations here. Have you know more or less the same process and problems and
01:28:52.740 --> 01:28:55.230
Panos Antonopoulos: For us, I will say is
01:28:56.670 --> 01:29:08.100
Panos Antonopoulos: How to have many to have many project, who have okay but not you know the biggest theme. So yeah, it's the productivity and their organizational productivity issue.
01:29:08.580 --> 01:29:30.450
Panos Antonopoulos: And of course, fundraising and yeah and also the, the human factor against against them and volunteers, as you said, it's really important. And because we we try to have to organize many events and some big events in patterns in Greece, it's no
01:29:31.860 --> 01:29:34.890
Panos Antonopoulos: Really area talents really to do that.
01:29:37.170 --> 01:29:40.020
Matteo Sisto: To manage the volunteers per se or
01:29:40.290 --> 01:29:43.050
Matteo Sisto: There is some little volunteers increase
01:29:43.110 --> 01:29:47.430
Matteo Sisto: That's not on a Friday I understood that social sector that is not super
01:29:48.660 --> 01:29:55.170
Panos Antonopoulos: I wouldn't say fine. I will say that the problem is to find the volunteers, but Manson and give you know keep them.
01:30:10.320 --> 01:30:13.500
Matteo Sisto: Anybody else wants to say something in this area.
01:30:21.690 --> 01:30:30.240
Matteo Sisto: Okay, I'm fine with that. I was expecting a bit more of you guys speaking a lot about this and you know told me everything about the challenges.
01:30:32.040 --> 01:30:32.940
Matteo Sisto: Tonic summed it up.
01:30:34.320 --> 01:30:37.080
Matteo Sisto: And you're going to go through this third
01:30:39.360 --> 01:30:47.130
Matteo Sisto: Question. Okay, so, following the presentation. Is there any tool that you will do like to try or learn more about
01:30:47.670 --> 01:30:55.170
Matteo Sisto: And please consider also like the other things I said at the beginning of the presentation. That's like there is a lot of topics for which
01:30:56.160 --> 01:31:09.120
Matteo Sisto: Me a. Net Squared in general can provide information, knowledge, and you know support in general to nonprofit organizations, starting from this is all marketing up to
01:31:10.230 --> 01:31:17.250
Matteo Sisto: I don't know, analytics, or whatever you guys need there is something that you would like to know about more
01:31:23.100 --> 01:31:30.900
Lemonia Moraiti: Absolutely, because of the position I currently hold them in terms of communications and I think that
01:31:32.190 --> 01:31:34.800
Lemonia Moraiti: Managing social media analytics and
01:31:36.180 --> 01:31:40.350
Lemonia Moraiti: Like Facebook ads and more insights and all of these things.
01:31:41.850 --> 01:31:44.250
Lemonia Moraiti: Are kind of what I'm expecting to take away
01:31:45.150 --> 01:31:55.140
Matteo Sisto: That's great. And like can ask you something. Because like on this topic. I have some ideas that I wanted to give you back. I will be, I don't know, like I'm, I'm thinking about some
01:31:55.980 --> 01:32:10.650
Matteo Sisto: Make like the make the next event on SEO that. Do you think it's something that could be interesting for you, like how to use for example Yoast SEO plugin and to create a strategy that will support your containing
01:32:11.580 --> 01:32:12.990
Lemonia Moraiti: I think that would be very interesting.
01:32:14.520 --> 01:32:27.120
Matteo Sisto: So like there is a lot of topics that can be covered through like a communications and like also I mean there's another topic of thinking about that is I don't know if you're familiar with the words on
01:32:28.200 --> 01:32:40.170
Matteo Sisto: Pillar content methodology. It's like something that was created by an American guy that's that works with CEO, fundamentally, it is to create
01:32:41.850 --> 01:32:59.670
Matteo Sisto: A big piece of big article. This will answer a lot of different questions around a single topic and in this way you will be able to, you know, run up in the long run better in Google. And that will, you know, benefit from through all of them.
01:33:01.200 --> 01:33:02.370
Lemonia Moraiti: I wasn't familiar with that.
01:33:04.560 --> 01:33:07.080
Lemonia Moraiti: I think I can say yes.
01:33:07.860 --> 01:33:11.100
Matteo Sisto: send you some awesome somebody about everything that I've talked about. So like
01:33:11.820 --> 01:33:12.810
Lemonia Moraiti: You know now.
01:33:12.840 --> 01:33:19.170
Matteo Sisto: Don't worry, no need to write down anything and somebody seeing some in general, my status as well.
01:33:20.640 --> 01:33:27.780
Matteo Sisto: Can you tell me a bit more of what you would like to learn. I mean, like, how can I help you, this is my question from them, actually.
01:33:52.740 --> 01:33:56.730
Matteo Sisto: Tell me what she wants to learn what you want to go in there in two weeks time
01:33:59.130 --> 01:34:09.630
Matteo Sisto: There is really 1000 different topics that we can touch upon and I will. I would love to support you project management tools for non GMO guys
01:34:11.190 --> 01:34:21.720
Matteo Sisto: I would really love to, you know, to know better what to give you is like this. This first event was really introductory and like I wanted to learn better. Who are the people that had in front of me.
01:34:23.070 --> 01:34:25.410
Matteo Sisto: And tell them what we can do together.
01:34:28.950 --> 01:34:36.900
Lemonia Moraiti: It's fine. My add something I think also the aspect of the management of volunteers. Sounds interesting. It's something that
01:34:37.710 --> 01:34:50.850
Lemonia Moraiti: We don't really do in a professional way because we all have very informal friendly connections with with everyone. We are about 500 volunteers in Greece. Now, or less. We know it's Heather.
01:34:51.750 --> 01:35:07.710
Lemonia Moraiti: But when it comes to training or information flow keeping volunteers engaged and all of these things. I think it's kind of time to step it up and maybe see what we can do for our human resources.
01:35:09.150 --> 01:35:15.540
Matteo Sisto: Sounds interesting. Um, do you use any formal process. I mean like onboarding you mention trainings and
01:35:15.870 --> 01:35:19.800
Lemonia Moraiti: Whatnot um, the thing is that we're
01:35:21.600 --> 01:35:37.350
Lemonia Moraiti: Kind of an umbrella organization and national umbrella organization for more local sections that are 90 in organizations in Greece, and they try and have them and it's one is based in a higher education institution in a university and it's one of them has its own procedures internally.
01:35:38.730 --> 01:35:40.260
Lemonia Moraiti: So it's a bit of a complex
01:35:41.640 --> 01:35:44.850
Lemonia Moraiti: Thing going on, but there are a few
01:35:46.170 --> 01:35:54.090
Lemonia Moraiti: common strategies that it's local section does when it comes to onboarding and now let's transfer
01:35:55.650 --> 01:35:57.750
Matteo Sisto: Um, do you use any particular tools for
01:35:57.750 --> 01:36:00.540
Matteo Sisto: That. So I mean, like, or just volunteer. So, you know,
01:36:00.960 --> 01:36:03.180
Matteo Sisto: For more like just to get better.
01:36:03.840 --> 01:36:04.530
Matteo Sisto: When you give you
01:36:04.950 --> 01:36:12.060
Lemonia Moraiti: Um, it's mostly offline when it comes to the sections. It's mostly offline. So you have physical meetings and
01:36:13.530 --> 01:36:24.270
Lemonia Moraiti: We also have national training events happening where we have the chance to actually see where what the level is and pass on more know let's
01:36:25.260 --> 01:36:46.290
Lemonia Moraiti: We use a forum for internal communication and to discuss current issues. So we do have a forum as the main Information Portal, but when it comes to management and training. It's mostly just forum and then informal Facebook groups where we can bond and get to know each other.
01:36:47.340 --> 01:36:48.870
Lemonia Moraiti: So no specific platform.
01:36:50.370 --> 01:36:51.150
Lemonia Moraiti: For onboarding
01:36:51.180 --> 01:36:51.630
Matteo Sisto: Or just
01:36:51.870 --> 01:36:58.620
Matteo Sisto: You know I'm it makes sense to me like I was just, I have some ideas in mind and like I wanted movie, be sure you're, you're not using anything
01:37:01.530 --> 01:37:07.530
Matteo Sisto: And somebody else wants to tell me what you guys would like to know better about
01:37:11.430 --> 01:37:27.570
Stamatia K.: If they could add to that, I would really be interested in information flow and how can we make people more not only others but also ourselves more accountable for example.
01:37:28.980 --> 01:37:33.150
Stamatia K.: We have tried to Santa. We have tried tread low we use Slack.
01:37:34.770 --> 01:37:46.050
Stamatia K.: As the except for forum that we use for our entire organization and the same organization as pneumonia. The previous speaker, but for more
01:37:46.530 --> 01:38:03.360
Stamatia K.: formal communication between the national level, we use Slack, but we have a problem when it comes to smaller tasks and that's why we go back and forth between our son in law.
01:38:04.410 --> 01:38:06.390
Stamatia K.: So information flow and
01:38:07.440 --> 01:38:08.070
Stamatia K.: Maybe some
01:38:08.100 --> 01:38:11.280
Matteo Sisto: What would you mean by it. I mean like internal communication. You mean
01:38:11.940 --> 01:38:13.320
Stamatia K.: Yeah, I think.
01:38:13.650 --> 01:38:24.780
Matteo Sisto: Not Sorry sir, because like when you said information. I was started to think about, you know, knowledge management and like data strategy is to gather data and then analyze I was completely out of
01:38:25.410 --> 01:38:25.770
01:38:27.210 --> 01:38:30.810
Stamatia K.: That will also be very useful because sometimes it's
01:38:33.480 --> 01:38:39.450
Stamatia K.: Between the national and local levers. We try to breed that
01:38:40.590 --> 01:38:56.580
Stamatia K.: With our forum, but still there is also an international level and you see there is a bit of complex way of information to flow and we would like to get some tips about
01:39:09.630 --> 01:39:12.510
Panos Antonopoulos: Mattel and really interesting
01:39:15.330 --> 01:39:30.000
Panos Antonopoulos: In tools, how to invest money metrics, how to measure the impact of our organization, our initiatives everything know a to keep tracking of everything in order to make it, make it easier
01:39:31.680 --> 01:39:34.530
Panos Antonopoulos: And our boards and see
01:39:34.650 --> 01:39:43.470
Matteo Sisto: I had recently done something on this side. And it was really, really interesting and like and started to use data studio
01:39:44.760 --> 01:39:58.110
Matteo Sisto: In order to visualize that you create dashboards. Also my records on Google Analytics Facebook and all social media is something that's you thought you wanted, or you had something more specific in mind.
01:39:59.880 --> 01:40:18.540
Panos Antonopoulos: Yeah, that's that's insane. That's the thing, because if you want to do this, you need to gather all the information you know for many different aspects of this presentation a data digital social media. So it's really tricky and difficult sometimes
01:40:19.680 --> 01:40:25.620
Panos Antonopoulos: For some for us because we have a different the written differently, the actual beneficial.
01:40:26.940 --> 01:40:34.860
Panos Antonopoulos: And emerging in the online world in the physical world. So sometimes it's difficult to to gather everything to I can find actually your, your impact.
01:40:36.210 --> 01:40:43.080
Panos Antonopoulos: If we try really hard to do that. So I would really love to find a tool or a combination of tools to make it easier
01:40:47.670 --> 01:40:49.800
Matteo Sisto: Okay, maybe we can speak a bit about that.
01:40:50.760 --> 01:41:05.430
Matteo Sisto: Because like that's in my inbox and individualized. It's not super easy. So topic and a nice to be able to do it in a couple of classes or whatnot, but I can give you a first. You know, like an introduction to these things.
01:41:06.510 --> 01:41:16.560
Matteo Sisto: Without much problem, but like, maybe you know say say with me two seconds at the end of the presentation and like will will speak a bit about that.
01:41:17.190 --> 01:41:19.320
Matteo Sisto: Again, for me, but thank you.
01:41:20.160 --> 01:41:28.110
Matteo Sisto: Anybody else wants to chip in what you guys would like to do, I'm going to also send out some in our questionnaire trying to understand what you guys really want to
01:41:28.650 --> 01:41:40.410
Matteo Sisto: Do you already gave me a baseline idea of through the survey through today. And if there is nobody else wants to speak, which is totally fine. We can close up this part.
01:41:41.850 --> 01:41:43.440
Matteo Sisto: Will give you the most second
01:41:53.760 --> 01:41:54.780
Matteo Sisto: Thank you very much.
01:41:57.390 --> 01:42:00.180
Matteo Sisto: Let's move back to the last
01:42:02.520 --> 01:42:03.630
LAST LAST LAST
01:42:05.430 --> 01:42:10.170
Matteo Sisto: Points so so seeing wrap up. Let's get all of this together and
01:42:10.890 --> 01:42:19.530
Matteo Sisto: I really wanted to thank the people that remained until the end to listen to my annoying voice so long and thank you for the input you know like
01:42:19.980 --> 01:42:37.440
Matteo Sisto: Even if you just say a couple of words that was really important to maybe it's like it helps me to get a better idea of what we'll do together and said there was going to be another event on the 30th of April topic to be decided something probably
01:42:38.520 --> 01:42:39.690
Matteo Sisto: Digital Marketing
01:42:41.190 --> 01:42:55.680
Matteo Sisto: And the other one will be a little bit more. I will have a little bit more time to prepare. So like we can think about something of the very interesting points that you guys raised in terms of tools that you would like to explore if if somebody wants to stay few minutes after
01:42:57.000 --> 01:42:58.950
Matteo Sisto: The end of this presentation that it's now.
01:43:00.540 --> 01:43:05.970
Matteo Sisto: Feel free to, you know, to stay up be very happy to chat with all of you that wanted to stay but
01:43:06.990 --> 01:43:22.680
Matteo Sisto: As it is, it's 730 we're perfectly in time to finish our meeting. I'm really happy. Thank you guys for for your participation for being with me. During this experiment, and I hope I didn't bore board you too much.
01:43:24.270 --> 01:43:26.070
Matteo Sisto: So, see you next time.
01:43:31.290 --> 01:43:32.250
Spyros Tsoukalas: May ask a question.
01:43:34.140 --> 01:43:50.010
Spyros Tsoukalas: How, how can we get informed, like I know where thing where the researchers FOR THE NEXT DAY ACTIVITY IS OUR. But how could we get a for more regularly about such events from you guys from
01:43:51.750 --> 01:43:52.680
Spyros Tsoukalas: That's where the
01:43:52.980 --> 01:44:04.050
Matteo Sisto: Human from Net Squared, I think, okay, there is a definitely a global community where you I can send you a link. Let's put it this way, if you register through Meetup.
01:44:05.430 --> 01:44:08.010
Matteo Sisto: I have all your, your emails.
01:44:09.210 --> 01:44:19.500
Matteo Sisto: And I should be able to send you on a sort of follow up from everything we said today, and like a definitely make sure to include all that. But if you go to next squared.org
01:44:20.820 --> 01:44:25.500
Matteo Sisto: If I'm not mistaken, it should be finding all the events.
01:44:26.910 --> 01:44:40.020
Matteo Sisto: With Net Squared organized and I said this is some international group. Most of the events are in English because they have done in Silicon Valley or like in English speaking countries.
01:44:41.280 --> 01:44:47.790
Matteo Sisto: And they go towards really deep in terms of technology. I mean, like, one of the last event.
01:44:48.720 --> 01:44:56.400
Matteo Sisto: I was looking at it was about some how to use artificial intelligence and chatbots to, you know, to engage better with your beneficiaries.
01:44:56.790 --> 01:45:09.900
Matteo Sisto: And that was really interesting. A bit too high level for me. But like, this is really interesting to know that these sorts of things exist and you can actually adapt that to your own organization so i think thats related to your question.
01:45:14.610 --> 01:45:15.900
Matteo Sisto: Nobody else wants to say
01:45:46.710 --> 01:45:48.900
Matteo Sisto: Maybe somebody else wants to listen to
01:45:53.430 --> 01:46:03.120
Matteo Sisto: We're starting something so like I I really would like to create a community that interested about these things and I'm just here for this so I'm to your complete disposal.
01:46:04.170 --> 01:46:07.770
Matteo Sisto: Let me know what you tell me what you, what, what can I can do for you.
01:46:09.060 --> 01:46:20.040
Panos Antonopoulos: You know, first of all, thank you for your presentation on the horn incentive really interesting and do for me. I'm an ID so gay I'm accustomed to using tools and
01:46:20.550 --> 01:46:42.660
Panos Antonopoulos: Developing passwords everything. So yeah, I was really interested to say a citizen of other organizations in Greece to so yeah and i think i have seen a gap, you know, in its using NGOs in Greece and center or, you know, of course, based on the on the actual
01:46:45.240 --> 01:46:46.950
Panos Antonopoulos: Say section of
01:46:48.210 --> 01:46:54.450
Panos Antonopoulos: Their work into. So the thing is, yeah, there is a gap, especially with older people and
01:46:57.600 --> 01:47:07.830
Panos Antonopoulos: Also, based on the the sector, but I think it's really important to do what you do and try and make them.
01:47:09.360 --> 01:47:23.490
Panos Antonopoulos: make introductions to other tools or to create a community and everything. So yeah, it's curious to see how it goes. And I would really love to see more people
01:47:24.030 --> 01:47:32.550
Panos Antonopoulos: From organizations, they don't use, they don't know how to use tool so that they they have an actual problem, you know, actually. So yeah, that's
01:47:33.600 --> 01:47:42.420
Panos Antonopoulos: That's something tricky because if they maybe it's difficult for them to be in here in, zoom, you know, and
01:47:43.440 --> 01:47:43.650
Panos Antonopoulos: You
01:47:43.980 --> 01:47:45.210
Panos Antonopoulos: Correct and ask questions.
01:47:46.260 --> 01:47:48.780
Matteo Sisto: That's why, that's why we usually have those events.
01:47:48.840 --> 01:48:06.120
Matteo Sisto: Physical you know like net squares. It's built up to organize physical events, of course, nowadays is not possible. And I would really prefer to have a physical events because I'm more youth, but now I'm you know I had fun on zoom but you definitely, definitely. So what she said. I mean, like,
01:48:07.230 --> 01:48:20.970
Matteo Sisto: People with older age have different propensity to use technology and like tools like zoom might be a barrier to them, you know, like I was really not shocked about, you know, impressed to see the level of like
01:48:22.410 --> 01:48:31.830
Matteo Sisto: Digital awareness and use of digital tools in the organization that spoke. I was expecting to have way lower level of
01:48:33.810 --> 01:48:37.380
Matteo Sisto: digitalization let's put it this way. So that was quite cool.
01:48:43.620 --> 01:48:46.650
Matteo Sisto: So before you asked about impact. Correct.
01:48:47.550 --> 01:48:49.470
Panos Antonopoulos: Mm hmm. Yeah, you know,
01:48:49.500 --> 01:48:57.600
Panos Antonopoulos: What one. We're seeing a yeah the the impact is sometimes we're talking, you know, with the team, how to do that.
01:48:58.380 --> 01:49:12.720
Panos Antonopoulos: Because it's reasonable for us to create a to keep tracking the beneficiaries and to measure the impact we have, you know, direct or indirect and also to create the annual reports that are really important for
01:49:14.760 --> 01:49:22.020
Panos Antonopoulos: For evaluation or for a get fund funding. So, of course,
01:49:23.550 --> 01:49:37.650
Panos Antonopoulos: It's difficult to every time to remember to just, you know, put a number or to do that. So yeah, it's a really a really talented to do that for the whole you know the whole last year, for example.
01:49:39.450 --> 01:49:51.210
Panos Antonopoulos: Yeah. And we really we have created, you know, some tools, but I will love to if if there is a specific process or a combination of tools. So, you know, some
01:49:53.190 --> 01:49:55.050
Panos Antonopoulos: Ideas. I love to hear about that.
01:49:55.680 --> 01:50:04.140
Matteo Sisto: No, no, definitely investigate that a little bit more. There's like a bit crazy for metrics and these sorts of things.
01:50:04.620 --> 01:50:05.370
Matteo Sisto: And like
01:50:05.460 --> 01:50:13.320
Matteo Sisto: I've been. I've been studying starting this whole process of technology and digital transformation for nonprofits organizations, one with
01:50:13.860 --> 01:50:26.880
Matteo Sisto: The idea to bring their the Lean Methodology into the nonprofit organization lean methodologies and methodology for startup or like no like business organization that's like it's really strong on using metrics.
01:50:27.780 --> 01:50:45.750
Matteo Sisto: You know, validate them and try to understand if what you're doing is working on our iterative levels. So like it's a cycle that starts with, you know, building measuring learning. But again, doing better. And like I think that this is what nonprofit organizations would need a bit more so.
01:50:47.100 --> 01:51:00.600
Matteo Sisto: I'll definitely try to find if there is an easy way to do it. I, I know that there are some software for reporting that are quite interesting. However, all the ones I know don't have
01:51:01.110 --> 01:51:10.800
Matteo Sisto: You know their their their paid software. It's mostly time. So, but I would definitely investigate a bit more. And what I wanted to tell us this like again like forum.
01:51:11.820 --> 01:51:24.210
Matteo Sisto: For everything that is about metrics for life visualization of results and trying to understand a bit better. The impact of nonprofit organization I use data to do that. It's quite simple, like a doesn't have
01:51:24.540 --> 01:51:30.420
Matteo Sisto: A lot of you know power in terms or engine. It's not a business intelligence.
01:51:30.870 --> 01:51:37.680
Matteo Sisto: Software, but some for many organizations we work by fine you know like if you need to do a robust statistical analysis.
01:51:38.070 --> 01:51:48.840
Matteo Sisto: Or some sort of regression or anything, you will use something else. If you just need to have a software that automatically connects with your data entry point from your website.
01:51:49.140 --> 01:51:56.070
Matteo Sisto: Your Facebook and like all the other software, you have this is perfect. And I have a template I wanted to share with you but like I am.
01:51:57.150 --> 01:52:07.410
Matteo Sisto: There is a new GDPR thing and like there is a 500 things that I need to review and I cannot access this now, or like it just send everything. Fine.
01:52:08.580 --> 01:52:11.490
Matteo Sisto: But click Accept. Let me go on. No.
01:52:51.450 --> 01:53:08.370
Matteo Sisto: To do like template us from hallway it's like super amazing organization that deals mostly with communication technology and nonprofit organization and they've created this template that it's really customizable. It's free. Like does
01:53:09.510 --> 01:53:15.600
Matteo Sisto: The knife fight. Yeah. So you see like this is other material connected with my
01:53:17.160 --> 01:53:18.060
Matteo Sisto: Google Analytics.
01:53:20.790 --> 01:53:25.890
Matteo Sisto: And we showed those in this very special monthly exists.
01:53:27.510 --> 01:53:36.990
Matteo Sisto: And should be connected also with other things. I don't know if this is something that's like I could be of interest to you or like with like a bitch. Your
01:53:38.130 --> 01:53:39.600
Matteo Sisto: Questions or anything.
01:53:47.880 --> 01:53:51.150
Panos Antonopoulos: To connect say whatever you can. There
01:53:52.320 --> 01:54:02.400
Matteo Sisto: Yeah, you know, like come not all the connections are free, meaning that you know like another studio, you need to have a data source, and then
01:54:03.840 --> 01:54:11.670
Matteo Sisto: Obviously session. Okay, those are all pieces like this is a piece that's like I put here because they needed that and like
01:54:13.020 --> 01:54:22.530
Matteo Sisto: It feeds all the data directly from my Google Analytics account. And I can also connect the bodies of this social network that like a you
01:54:24.330 --> 01:54:24.870
Panos Antonopoulos: All
01:54:25.290 --> 01:54:32.430
Matteo Sisto: Worth connect the dinosaurs with this program are free and like I tried a couple times to do it.
01:54:33.510 --> 01:54:42.450
Matteo Sisto: By myself, but it's a bit tricky. Especially if you move a lot of data that's in this way. So for example, I was doing that with my whole
01:54:43.590 --> 01:54:47.610
Matteo Sisto: Facebook account and like it was 500 1000 lines of
01:54:48.780 --> 01:54:56.070
Matteo Sisto: 500 data points and like just crazy. I went a bit mad but if this is something that would interest you all
01:54:57.240 --> 01:54:59.910
Matteo Sisto: Read it up a little bit more about that.
01:55:00.930 --> 01:55:04.320
Panos Antonopoulos: seems really they're saying, I'm going to take a look into that. Thank you very much.
01:55:06.570 --> 01:55:09.330
Panos Antonopoulos: I feel bad, you have for keeping you here.
01:55:09.930 --> 01:55:13.950
Matteo Sisto: Only one another. No, I'm really hear me, like, this is my
01:55:14.370 --> 01:55:26.790
Matteo Sisto: Like my parents and my pleasure, all I got. I'm happy that there is somebody I can so use me as you like and also your email I got it.
01:55:28.980 --> 01:55:46.440
Panos Antonopoulos: Thank you very much. And one more thing I would like to serve you, because I let's say I'm in the same position. The last three weeks because you know all the people, many organizations men people their child racing to me in to us organization to ask us
01:55:47.670 --> 01:55:53.970
Panos Antonopoulos: How to do things on the web, you know, because of the coronavirus tracer because they didn't have the capacity to
01:55:55.620 --> 01:56:03.720
Panos Antonopoulos: Do rates, the beneficiaries. They have internet and they don't know how to, you know, stream or how to have it worked hard to have a webinar.
01:56:04.290 --> 01:56:14.460
Panos Antonopoulos: Or a learning everything. It's what we do. So yeah, I know. I think no one message that maybe they know how to do it, but I really think it's
01:56:15.240 --> 01:56:28.890
Panos Antonopoulos: going viral right now. And I think many organizations, they will be interesting. Interesting. The in this, how to to stream and how to make a webinar like let's now zoom folks. Oh.
01:56:30.390 --> 01:56:42.270
Matteo Sisto: Yeah, no, that's definitely a good topic, you know, like I it's very hard for me to find a topic that would be of interest to other people because I tend to read so much. I'm like, I'm a huge nerd. You know, like
01:56:42.690 --> 01:56:52.140
Matteo Sisto: I really spent 70% of my life just reading and getting to understand what's out there. So, like, to me, those things have been done so many times that became boring.
01:56:52.440 --> 01:57:07.560
Matteo Sisto: And, but, like, No, you're right. I mean, like, this is the sort of feedback that I need some people are not like me. That's the first thing I should go and of course like this is something that is booming. Not all the people that are working nonprofit organizations are
01:57:08.700 --> 01:57:15.930
Matteo Sisto: You know proficiency, or like a Fitbit desire, you know, like basic thing. So that's definitely also something that's
01:57:19.560 --> 01:57:29.850
Panos Antonopoulos: That's what we hear and what I'm hearing and what they they says for the search for know they asked, they asked for it for learning webinars and
01:57:31.050 --> 01:57:42.840
Panos Antonopoulos: Streaming or a combination. I want to do this interview or two to hold this webinar. But how can also streaming, for example, it's, you know,
01:57:43.980 --> 01:57:50.910
Panos Antonopoulos: It's an interesting area for many for many people, they actually sounds really new for them.
01:57:53.010 --> 01:58:01.620
Matteo Sisto: Hundred percent. I mean, like, I see that with my own parents, you know that I've never had that zoom conversation and now they're forced to have it or whatever. But some
01:58:02.070 --> 01:58:09.600
Matteo Sisto: Also something that might have been off putting. For the people to participate in. So that was everything was in English. You know, like I
01:58:10.980 --> 01:58:14.160
Matteo Sisto: Might my Greek is not even basic my greatest novel.
01:58:15.090 --> 01:58:24.210
Matteo Sisto: And I think that, of course, is a barrier. So that's why I'm also trying to, you know, create a community of people that can actually be local. Because this is what is needed.
01:58:24.720 --> 01:58:32.400
Matteo Sisto: It's not me coming from outside. It's somebody from your community speak your language to actually have any I'm here, just as a
01:58:33.930 --> 01:58:37.260
Matteo Sisto: Starting point I want to. I'm a big bang.
01:58:38.610 --> 01:58:47.160
Panos Antonopoulos: So thank you again for everything and probably say next time I I tried to be here again. And they also promote the next event.
01:58:48.180 --> 01:58:48.570
Matteo Sisto: Very much.
01:58:51.000 --> 01:58:52.140
Matteo Sisto: You. Thank you. Thank you very much.
01:58:52.410 --> 01:59:03.510
Matteo Sisto: And if you, you know, like I am I don't like to be a one man show. Actually, I mean like my knowledge is limited and like I get very bored and speaking too much with people about complex topics.
01:59:03.960 --> 01:59:11.820
Matteo Sisto: And if you feel like you know being a speaker in one of those events is definitely something that is possible. You know you already mentioned about
01:59:12.960 --> 01:59:15.480
Matteo Sisto: The webinar that everybody talks to you about that.
01:59:15.660 --> 01:59:17.490
Matteo Sisto: Some more than happy to
01:59:17.640 --> 01:59:23.310
Matteo Sisto: If you want to collaborate or she wants to do anything to give you some place.
01:59:23.910 --> 01:59:32.280
Panos Antonopoulos: That I can be the same. The only thing is, you know, then they limited time. I love to do that. Let's listen. Let's talk about that.
01:59:33.210 --> 01:59:35.580
Matteo Sisto: Yeah, no, we don't we don't rush me without
