Matt Talbot were delighted to be selected as one of the groups chosen to work with Google through their Google Leadership programme which is an initiative organised through Business in the Community (BIC).
On the orientation day we got to meet our mentor Abhinand Jude who was charged with the responsibility of identifying a starting point to bring Matt Talbot’s approach to fund raising, engaging with the public through social media up to speed. Being in the Google environment itself was a complete eye opener in that the physical space is designed to encourage efficiency and care of it’s employees.
Abhinand worked with the team during the week of the 22nd – 26th August introducing us to Adwords, Google docs, website design and all presented in way that we could clearly see how it would allow us to be more efficient and make better use of technology.
In the words of Abhinand it was an “awesome experience” and one which we are very grateful to both BIC and Google. We hope to continue this link with Abhinand and Google into the future.
