Listen & #Daretogive: Social Media in meetings & events
Gerrit Heijkoop will take you on a journey that will grow your confidence in how to approach new social technologies when organizing your next meeting or event. During his session he will help you understand the new ‘ground rules’ of online Social Networking. He will explain why Social Media are such powerful tools around live events and meetings. Based on real-life case examples, Gerrit will guide you through several ‘Social Scenarios’. A ‘Social Scenario’ is a combination of a storyline, tools and operations, specifically designed to support a certain business process. This will make it easier for you to determine whether you should consider Social Media at all for your next meeting or event, which resources you need, what to do with them and how to get results.
