Technology is transforming the way we live our lives, be it at home or at work, it is all around us. Some of it is good and some of it seems scary and almost sci-fi. As we transition into a technological era and adopt new ways, we are all left with the challenge of what to adopt and why.
Nathan Baranowski from ojo solutions is a technology strategist who works with organisations to help them understand how to adopt the right technology to enable and release their organisation’s potential. In this interactive and explorative session, Nathan will take you on a whistle-stop tour of the future and how technology can transform lives. He will share his thinking through real-life examples of the key digital themes every business needs to consider in order to adopt the right technologies to realise their goals and future potential.
Whether you are a techie or a technophobe this session will offer something for everyone.
Join us for March’s Rooster Talk. Free admission with coffee and croissants from The Field Kitchen.

ojo recently sponsored the Civil Society’s annual Charity Technology Conference, held in London last month. This unique event, designed for Charity IT & Digital leaders, showcased the best of innovation across the sector.
Having worked in the third sector for the last 15 years, Nathan gave a keynote speech surrounding the challenges he has faced in creating transformational change within the Disabilities Trust. As their Director of Technology, heading a programme to modernise and transform the business through the use of innovative IT solutions, Nathan’s talk had many practical tips for charities to achieve their objectives.
With ojo also exhibiting at the conference, some superb conversations were had by the team with many third sector digital leaders.

Art for Macmillan (Devon and Cornwall) Fundraising Committee is creating prestigious events to sell and auction amazing artwork in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. They were recommended to approach ojo solutions with a requirement to create a new Event website. The first large scale event will be held at Bridwell Park, the Devon home of Lord Ivar Mountbatten, who has generously given his support to the project. With the first auction later this year, ojo solutions were very interested in working with Art for Macmillan in designing and developing this brochure website and being recognised as a partner to this prestigious and worthy cause.
Art for Macmillan required a clean design enabling donating artists’ artwork to be uploaded and showcased. The design also needed to complement all the partner and sponsor logos as well as including all the event information. The wonderful location of Bridwell Park needed to be displayed prominently as well as the website displaying past event details.
Art for Macmillan were also aware from the outset of the importance of responsive design and making the website as accessible as possible to people using devices of all shapes and sizes.
Although online ticket sales were not a requirement, the website was built in a way in which this could be integrated at a later date. The entire site is managed via the intuitive interface of ojoCMS.
Bridget Hill, local Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said “I am delighted that ojosolutions agreed to work with the fundraising committee on this project. Having a great website will be fundamental to the success of the events and ultimately the amount raised to help people affected by cancer. The stakes are high but we are confident that ojosolutions is a great partner to have on board.”
We’re very excited to be involved in this project and look forward to the site launching this year before the first event in October.
