Social Media for Social Good – Glasgow 5th Dec 2014

Scotland’s third sector social media conference returns to Glasgow on 5th December 2014. I’ve worked with GCVS to programme the line-up of speakers and workshops – which is pretty damn impressive if I don’t say so myself. The focus is very much on learning, debate and making connections. We’ve kept ticket prices low so it’s accessible to all budgets. You’re welcome along whether you work in the charity, public or private sector.
