Finding the best tech tools for your community group

Running a team is hard work, even when things are running efficiently! That is why, we wanted to provide community groups with a special Spring Webinar Series – He Raupapatanga o Te Kōanga centered on finding the best technology tools for you and your team. We are teaming up with NZ Navigator Trust (check out their website Digital Stuff We Love) to bring you four webinars in October and November. Gain a better understanding of what tech tools are available to your community group and how you could be using them.

Check out our recordings below on Finance & Payroll tools; Marketing & Comms tools; Online Meetings & Events tools; and Team tools below.
