About Me - Jason Ojukwu

I graduated from the University of Derby with a degree in Enterprise Management. One of my first digital roles was a new business manager for the digital gaming agency Squidsoup. Later on I was hired by the digital design agency, Deepend London. Following downturn, I moved back to enterprise where I was employed by Hoxton incubator, Hoxton Bibliotech and the University of East London. In 2016, I joined Arthritis Research UK.

I am a trained digital business advisor and achieved SFEDI accreditated status. As digital project manager, I am a blend of Scrum Master and Product Owner but I have a varied experience, working within digital publishing, advertising, games, email and web. I love the variety of my roles, and I tend tend to achieve peak performance when I can imprint my methodology to best benefit the organisation that I have been hired by.

I am a certified Scrum Master and Product Owner.

This was a fun project that was commissioned by Umbro to tie-in with the closure of Wembley stadium (home of the Engalnd football team) before its refurbishment.
Umbro (England's kit manufacturers) wanted a small web-based game that could be played by football fans but which also highlighted Umbro's global appeal.

The Charity's website was built to help The Charity achieve its triple goals of making civil servants aware of the financial support, helpline support and also the remote-support via digital services that were available to them.

Carers Trust New Website

Format: New website
Employer/Client: Carers Trust
Industry: Non-profit
Project Goals: Deliver new website using agile principles
Summary:
The Carers Trust website was built and delivered to enable the charity to reach more carers online due to the often remote nature of carers and caring. With financial support from The Queen’s Trust and its title as The Co-operative Charity of the Year - the charity sought to encourage more young and young adult carers to use its online communities.

As part of the strategy to reach and support more carers via their help, information and online services, Carers Trust redesigned the main website for carers, Carers.org, to create a highly carer-focused, accessible and mobile responsive site. The project was shaped by an an initial discovery phase where we arried out consultations with key stakeholders including carers of all ages and with varying caring experiences. However due to the list of required features and the array of user-stories, this Drupal-built charity website used Scrum as its agile technique to get approval of core feature via demonstrations of features which had been completed.

Versus Arthritis Email Lead-Generation Campaign

Format: Autoresponder email campaign
Employer/Client: Versus Arthritis formerly Arthritis Research UK
Industry: Non-profit
Project Goals: Generate new leads based on creation of video content
Summary:
This email lead-generation campaign looked to acquire new leads.

Users chose the area of the body that user wanted exercise and pain tips on.

Each day (for five days) the user got an email with video exercise content based on their choices.

At the end of the email journey there was a small request to user to sign up for more information to Arthritis Research UK newsletter an/or to make a donation to Arthritis Research UK.

Although this was initially a simple idea it was an incredibly complex procces which generated 9,000 new email subscribers.

The stand-out lessons from this project were that great relevant content will always being held in high demand from user, but use of the right tools and processes can make something good - even better.

Versus Arthritis Events Registration Form

Format: Booking and payment form
Employer/Client: Versus Arthritis
Industry: Non-profit
Project Goals: Delivery of new events registration and payment form
Summary:
Which is trickier? Running a marathon or creating the marathon runner's submission form?
Requirements, requirements...most charity content managment systems allow you to create a form fairly easily. However, how you create a form which requires a users online payments, capture of user data which is then passed to the charity's whilst all the while keeping the user engaged in the process?

We looked at building a bespoke solution, however this had inherent costs. So we took all the requirements and broke them down into user stories, spoke with event and finance teams, analysed user pain-barriers on the current form and proceeded to have discussions with payment form providers.

Following the recommendation and selection of the winning vendor. We began the process of uploading fields to the forms, testing that the data pulled through to the CRM and that payment was actually being recorded by our finance team. Deployment of the forms was smooth and without too many hitches and following the introduction of the charity 's new brand identity the forms were customised to relect the new brand.

Versus Arthritis Online Community

Format: Online forum
Employer/Client: Versus Arthritis
Industry: Non-profit
Project Goals: Delivery of new online forum and migration of forum members to new forum
Summary:
How do you migrate 12,000 users from a vibrant health discussion forum to a new platform with minimal disruption?
With a team...and a methodology.
Following the merger of two charities, Arthritis Research UK and Arthritis Care - there was an opprtunity to reinvest in an enhanced mobile-responsive forum to help forum users post comments, read discussions and improve engagement and awareness of the charity's other support services.

Using an agile Scrum method, we broke down the requirements into user stories, spoke with stakeholders, put the requirements into a tender which was won by a North American forum provider and moved through the discovery to design to development and to deployment.

The feedback from users since its February 2020 launch has been encouraging and the team are looking forward to the next release.
