The biggest pain point in the charity sector is data: here's what we know

A Talk by Sean , Michael Thelwell , Susanne Tidswell and Peter White

About this Talk

We conducted over 50 hours of interviews with charity professionals and, without prompting, 95% of them said that data was the biggest pain point in their roles: exporting, importing, cleaning, de-duplicating data. (Not) being able to trust data. Not using data. On average, charity professionals are spending 1 day per week on data admin. They're not happy about it, and who could blame them? All of this time and stress spent over data is time NOT spent on the creative, fulfilling and productive work that got charity workers into the industry in the first place. What's more, poor data systems and processes ultimately lead to poor supporter experiences and lower income for charities, which negatively impacts the beneficiaries they serve.

Come along to this talk from CharityBI and charity professionals who have been part of the research project. Why? You'll be comforted to know that you're not alone in your data woes and we'll share insights on how you can improve your current situation and get back to focusing on productive, fulfilling work.

-- A huge thank you to Susanne, Peter and Michael for being such an open, insightful panel. If you would like to know more about CharityBI you can join the waitlist at www.charity.bi or email Sean at [email protected].
