5 charity digital influencers you should be following

Charity Influencer Feature

There are so many awesome people to be inspired by in the charity sector. It seems that digitally minded folk are culturally even more likely to apply an almost open-source mentality to sharing skills, knowledge and top tips.

Here are just five of the many ace people you should be following on Twitter right now.

James Gadsby Peet

James used to work at Cancer Research UK. He’s heavily involved in Product Tank, an awesome meetup for digital product people, the Institute of Fundraising National Convention digital stream, and everything else you can think of.

He posts about everything from digital products, trends in the charity sector and all things digital. Well worth a follow.

Zoe Amar

Zoe is behind lots of super important reports and events in the charity sector, including the Charity digital skills report and the Third Sector Digital Leaders course run with the School for Social Entrepreneurs.

The information coming out of those events on their own will inspire any charity digital person for years to come.

She also has great discussions on all aspects of digital on her Twitter feed, which will give your digital brain a much needed work-out.

Becca Peters

Becca is the digital product manager at Breast Cancer Care, the charity behind the awesome BECCA app (which is all Kristina Barrick’s work, another great person to follow from that charity).

Few people can claim to share as much knowledge and information as Becca. She takes studious notes from every conference she goes to, and shares them for all to see on her blog. How good is that?

Check all those notes out and give her a follow.

Kirsty Marrins

Kirsty wears many hats, from her former title as Queen of Storify (before the platform folded) to her current title of best trustee on social media.

She writes excellent blog content for Lightful, not to mention sharing her thoughts on the excellent restaurants and cities she visits in her spare time.

A more delightful mix of content you’ll be hard-pressed to find.

Julie Dodd

Julie is the author of The New Reality, the bible for digital transformation in the sector. You may well have seen this poster – it was part of the report, and is on the wall of charities across the land

She’s now the Director of Digital Transformation and Communications at Parkinson’s UK, a charity which now ventures into everything from crowdfunding vlogging sites to artificial intelligence.

Julie is the director that all charities need but only one has.
