Last month we shared the news we had ambitions to scale our project Push to Talk. We’re happy to say there is lots to update you on and we’re beginning to see traction with some key delivery partners. 

What’s been happening?

Local Solutions Partnership

We’re proud to now be partnering with Local Solutions, a charity that provides health and social care services to vulnerable people across Merseyside. Local Solutions provide much-needed services to many vulnerable groups such as coffee mornings, skills improvement classes and much more. Coronavirus has meant they needed a more digital-focused solution, so we’re happy to be partnering with them again. We’re no strangers to the inspiring work carried out by Local Solutions as we’ve worked together previously on a 5G project. Our new partnership has enabled us to deliver the app to a group of unpaid carers, giving them the chance to start conversations with other people on the network and feel less cut-off. 

Who else might want to hear about Push to Talk?

We’re also in conversations with other local councils to help bring Push to Talk to a national level. If you have anyone in your network who works in the following areas and would be interested in hearing more about the project, please have them get in touch via 

  • Those working in health and social care
  • Medical and mental health professionals
  • Fellow innovators and technologists
  • City council members
  • Care home providers
  • Housing associations

Many Webinar Appearances

Our MD Jen has also had the opportunity to speak on multiple panels about Push to Talk, helping us to spread the word to many new audiences. Huge thanks are due to Menai Science Park who welcomed us to discuss our project on their webinar earlier in the month – you can still catch Jen’s talk. We’ve also been invited to speak on a panel with Business Cloud UK on May 20th which aims to discuss how HealthTech has responded to COVID-19. And, as if that wasn’t enough – Jen will also be speaking for IoT North on June 2nd – make sure you tune in!

Plus, we’re hosting our own virtual round table; Tech Can Save Us.

As if Jen wasn’t webinar-ed out, we’re also hosting our own event on Thursday May 28th. Some of the North West’s brightest minds and progressive companies are coming together to have a lively discussion on how we can help some of our most vulnerable citizens during the COVID-19 crisis. We discuss how they’re keeping at-risk communities safe and connected through innovative uses of technology. We’ve got an awesome line up of speakers including Tracy Paine, Deputy CEO of Belong, James Chapman, Co-Founder and MD of Safe Steps and Katie Dean an Economist for Liverpool Combined Authority. They’ll all be joined by our own MD Jen and host Dawn Paine from The Extraordinary Club. Be sure to book your tickets. 

We’re so proud of everything we’ve achieved and we look forward to updating you all again soon. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and connect with Jen and Pat on LinkedIn. We hope you can become part of our Push to Talk community.
