About this Speaker

Jaki is a 'Grandma in Tech' & proud of it. Founder of If Everyone Cares CIC and creator of aDoddle.org. Jaki witnessed, both personally and professionally, the direct impact of ‘Information Poverty’ on people’s lives when they were unable to easily find help/support when they needed it most. She heard stories that left her struggling to sleep. To her it seemed incredible that in a world where technology can help you find a restaurant or pub virtually anywhere in the world why was it so hard to find the places where people could access help and support, find opportunities to volunteer or places to connect with others in their community. Along with a small group of amazing volunteers, they have worked tirelessly to get aDoddle.org to where it is today. Feedback and research has now led to the development & launch of a growing network of area-based connected community maps. aDoddle has received a number of awards during their journey, including: Named on the UK’s Digital Leaders 100 list for potential social impact ‘Points of Light’ award from the Prime Minister Idea for the map voted 3rd, by the public, in the Global Sir Richard Branson & Virgin Unite Challenge to Screw Business as Usual in 2012.
