Simon will give a talk titled “When we share, do they care? Using Impact Assessment to understand how our digital presence changes lives.” He will concentrate his presentation on the Balanced Value Impact Model, and how focusing on the ways we change the lives or life opportunities of our communities should affect our investment of digitization, digital presence, and user engagement.
