The importance of the personal touch: How charities benefit from conferencing

Teleconferencing is an ideal way to speak with groups of people on a collaborative, human level.

There are around 600,000 charities operating in Australia, according to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). With such a vast array of services all looking to provide funding and care for some of the most deprived or under-developed regions and people in the country, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.

In a society where the speed of information is as high as concentration levels are low, charity organisations are always trying to find that new and effective way of engaging with audiences and transmitting their altruistic message.

One way that charities can do this is by communicating with investors and collaborators on a more personal and human level.

The most ideal way to share information for charity workers would be through face-to-face storytelling; however, in the sixth largest country on planet earth, it is usually an expensive and time-consuming (never mind tiring) way of doing things.

It is important for charity workers, then, to interact with the technology that is available to them.

Teleconferencing is a way to share words with large numbers of people over a great distance. Brisbanites can collaborate with Perthians and Melburnians with Darwinians with minimal set-up time and costs.

Most importantly, streams of impersonal emails can be resigned to history where they belong and messages can be conveyed in conversation, allowing for immediate response, feedback, debate, agreement - all the things that make one-on-one contact so effective.

Teleconferencing is inexpensive too, with Eureka Conferencing calls costing as little as 8 cents per minute per person. These unbeatable prices are designed to allow charities, NPOs and small to medium businesses to make the most from their budgets.

If there are images, videos or other media that needs to be shared, upgrading to a web conference package is simple and maintains that personal touch.

Text-based conversations can often become robotic and overly formal; by connecting groups of people as individuals, a charity is able to convey the emotive issues that could win them the support they need to continue their work.
