5 reasons I’m excited about Social Media for Social Good Glasgow

Scotland’s third sector digital media conference returns to The Albany Learning and Conference centre on 17th May and I’m pretty bloody excited. Here’s why…

1. We’ll get the inside track on how the #EqualMarriage campaign harnessed the power of social media

{Jump to 4.08 to listen to Tom French who will be speaking at our event}

2. Stephen Naysmith, The Herald, will be openly exploring how charities and social entrepreneurs can use social media to effectively connect with ‘traditional’ journalists.

3. We’ll have workshops centred around real-life case studies from the likes of National Trust for Scotland, Young Scot, Scottish Athletics, Youth Football Scotland and Leith Library.

4. It’s a chance to meet other third sector professionals interested in getting the most out of their online presence.

5. Leah Lockhart, The Improvement Service, and Marc Bowker, formerly Quarriers, will be looking at the often overlooked issue of how social media fits within your organisational culture.
