11th October 2009 (Ayden’s Birthday) – Six Months Blogging, two years on Twitter, three years on Face Book, four Years on LinkedIn.
I’m still nowhere close to being a social media “expert” or “guru”. But I do have some views and personal insights (Who am I ? Check the About “Building Better Connections” section). I’ve been doing some practical sessions (speeches, workshops, consultancy) in the third sector on the subject of Social Media over the last 8 months. I’ve been speaking to the public sector and civil service too, getting to know folks in that sphere. Finally, of course I’ve met with a good handful of private sector (profit focused) organisations too. There are some great people with some great ideas and case studies in all the sectors, but not really any experts/guru’s yet IMHO.
There is definitely a very healthy appetite to learn about Social Media in all the sectors, so 140Characters.co.uk has a “reason to exist”, which feels very cool I have to say.
Even better, industry peers and conference organisers have placed their trust in me to share my views and insights at various conferences during October and November 2009. Here they are in date order:
