My presentation for the Glasgow Third Sector Forum launch

For the launch of the new Glasgow Third Sector Forum I gave a presentation on social media myths and misconcpetions, followed by a workshop where participants created the world’s quickest social media strategy. A few attendees have asked for the slides – I’ve embedded these below, along with a few links you might find useful.

If you’ve got any questions about what we covered in the presentation/workshop please drop me an email: ross[@]thirdsectorlab.co.uk
