ONN: One down, many more to go!

One Net recently launched a new quarterly program that allows us to work for people in our own backyard. This is important to us because while we live, work, play and create in Victoria BC, most of our clients are in completely different time zones. There are so many organizations working to make our community a better place to live, and we want to give back in a meaningful, useful way.

And so One Net Nights was born

Once a quarter, One Net hosts three local not-for-profit or charity organizations in our board room. We assemble a panel of experts from our team and the greater tech and design community to help the analyze and plan solutions for issues that are holding these organizations back from reaching their full potential. Each organization brings a different problem to the table within the realm of tech, digital marketing or design.

Everyone gets a turn at the table with our panel of experts, and we review the issue and get started on solutions right away. One of the great things about One Net Nights is that everyone's in the room for all three sessions, so there is an opportunity to learn from others' problems and experiences.

What went down in March

Our first run at One Net Nights happened March 21st and it was a heartwarming success! We got to meet a few of the hardworking people behind the scenes of the Greater Victoria Police Victim Services, Victoria Health Co-op, and Victoria Hospice.

The common theme amongst everyone was they all had a website problem or two, which can be a big deal for organizations who have limited resources and capacity. But by the time they left the office, they had a much clearer understanding of how to fix their issue. Success!

We walked our participants through content management systems, social media integrations, Google Analytics and more. Each participant received a "One Net Nights Roadmap" after the session. The roadmap outlines the topics discussed and maps out an action plan for them to take back to implement at work.

What's next?

Everyone is looking forward to the next round of One Net Nights. If this is something you think you'd want to apply to, or participate in as a knowledge provider, get in touch with us! The upcoming dates for 2017 are posted on the website at nights.onenetinc.com . Help us spread the word!
