We’ve teamed up with Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector to bring you an amazing line-up of speakers and interactive workshops to help you get the most out of digital media for your charity, community group or social enterprise. 

Social media has transformed the way the third sector campaigns, raises funds, sells, recruits volunteers and raises awareness. The online world has truly transformed the way we engage with our beneficiaries, the public & key influencers.

Social media is no longer a ‘nice to have’ element of your marketing, PR, campaigning and fundraising mix – it’s an essential tool which can transform the way your organisation connects with the world.

Our one day conference will be anything but dull, we’ll be exploring key case studies, the latest digital media trends and providing you with the skills you need to make a mark with social media.

As well as being an amazing learning experience, ‘Social media for social good’ is a great networking opportunity. Our event is suitable for charities, community groups, social enterprises and other third sector organisations as well as public or private orgs looking to connect with the sector.
