Mind blown at Saturday’s Hack4Good by TDG!

£4,745 raised for charity and a wealth of unique and genuinely impressive ideas built and brought to reality with a little love, a lot of speed, an incredible amount of talent and a world of imagination.

I was so privileged to be part of the wonderful team red - Sarah Critchley, Scott Durow, Lee Baker, Wesley Booth. I'm admittedly biased but the team that worked and partied hardest in my eyes. I cannot thank you enough for making me feel so welcome.

An inspirational morning of diverse speakers covering topics such as Leveraging Microsoft Technology within the Charity and NPO space from the warm and colourful Sarah Critchley to hearing about Successful Partnerships from M-Hance & Solent Minds and Quantiq and Leonard Cheshire.


Then a 4 hour hack!

Using PowerPlatform, Office 365, Dynamics365 & Azure.

Four hours is intense, even by hacking standards, and let me tell you, we were all feeling it by the end of the session. But it was all very much worth it. The wealth of ideas and builds that came out of only 4 hours was simply awe inspiring.

Such a friendly, cohesive, innovative, collaborative, inclusive group of wonderful people, giving up their Saturday to think in unique ways to address as yet unsolved problems in the for-purpose sector.

All coordinated and facilitated by a wonder team including Chris Huntingford, Lucy Muscat, Keith Whatling, Alex Rijnoveanu, Saurabh Pant and Sameer Bhangar and held in the Microsoft Reactor London.

I felt truly lucky to be in the room.

And continue to feel inspired by the day.
