Comic Relief Implements Convene

Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK which strives to create a just world, free from poverty. Founded by comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis and comedian Lenny Henry in response to famine in Ethiopia in 1985, their mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment.

Comic Relief has raised millions of pounds through two big fundraising campaigns – Red Nose Day and Sport Relief which are now prominent events in British popular culture.

Comic Relief was looking for a digital meeting solution for their board and internal meetings. Liz Warner, who was appoint Chief Executive in October 2016, was very keen to embrace the digital world for board meetings.

There were many concerns about security and access when it came to printed documents, which is easily solved by Convene’s 2048-bit SSL encryption and fine grained access control.

Using Convene, compared to printing meeting documents, has proven to reduce meeting costs and is a sustainable way to run meetings.

Convene is constantly developing its digital meeting platform. With the help of Comic Relief and other clients, we are developing new features to make digital meetings accessible to all employees in an organisation.
