Virtue & Virtuosity

A new, weekly podcast from charity tech guru, and CITL Deputy-Chair of Trustees, Stuart McSkimming.

Join Stuart each week as he interviews CIO’s, CTO’s, business leaders, tech experts and industry leaders  about their experiences of how charities and not-for-profits are embracing the opportunities and managing the challenges of AI.

Stuart McSkimming chats with Tree Hall, CEO of Charity IT Leaders about the podcast, and interviews Caty Mueller, Technology Director at the National Trust to hear about their strategic plans with AI.

Episode Two - Ivan Wainewright and Jon Fox

Episode two is co-hosted with Ivan Wainewright, a virtuoso of the charity CRM world. We discuss the parallels between AI and CRM implementations. Stuart interviews Jon Fox from the Alzheimer's organisation and hears about their uses of AI, including how they are using transcription to improve how their helplines operate.

Episode Three - Mary O'Callaghan and Rob Way

Mary O'Callaghan joins Stuart as this week's co-host, where they discuss benchmarking across the sector and how charities effectively share knowledge. Stuart interviews Rob Way from the British Heart Foundation and hears how they have embedded AI into their strategic approach.

Episode Four - Small Charities

In this episode Stuart is focusing on small charities. He talks with Ivan Delany, a digital trustee with Cambridge House, and with Pratish Kotecha, an adoption consultant. Ivan describes his five priorities for leaders, trustees and digital specialists to focus on in smaller organisations, and while Pratish talks practicalities, sharing how you can implement AI tech in your organisation.

Episode Five - Karin Woodley

Stuart discusses the bigger picture on AI, and where it is going. Stuart talks with Karin Woodley, Chair of the Race Equality foundation about her concerns with bias and AI - and also what the charity sector, governments and the tech industry can be doing about this.

Starts at the Top

Way back during lockdown, Starts At the Top began as a podcast about digital disruption. But very soon, co-hosts Zoe Amar and Paul Thomas realised that leaders were telling them about something more important and urgent: how traditional ways of leading had changed, forever. Zoe and Paul speak to leaders who are carving out new ways of leading, covering topics from emerging tech to inclusion, remote work, mental health and climate change.

Their podcast isn’t about shiny corporate case studies. It’s about the lessons learned and progress made the hard way – and how that can inspire others.
