Welcome to talk about local

At talk about local we help people find a powerful online voice. This work ranges from consultancy for large international organisations to individuals and communities seeking to connect in their neighbourhoods.

With digital inclusion and participation fast becoming the norm and it is our aim to help people with the digital skills they need to be included and participate digitally. Whether you’re the CEO of a multinational or on the organising committee of a village hall, the need to understand the digital world and the opportunities it presents has never been more apparent.

This is why we work with local and national government, commercial organisations, charities and voluntary groups to help form policy around digital skills, participation and inclusion.

We have a strong public service ethos and the unique network of people we work with run their own local websites. Because of this, over  many years we have built up a great deal of expertise and knowledge about the so-called hyperlocal sector and are often called upon to comment in the media and speak at conferences and forums about the challenges and opportunities of this sort of independent publishing.

You can find links to our last few post below but please visit our blog for more posts about our work, news from the sector and opinion plus our events listings will let you know where we’re to next be found.
