    Manchester Social Media Surgery Events: an Introduction Manchester Social Media Surgery Events: an Introduction Presentation Transcript

    • Introducing Manchester Social Media Surgery
    • Presented at Social Media Cafe Manchester #smc_mcr by @realfreshtv on Tues 1 st December 2009 Venue: BBC Cafe, Manchester
    •  
    • Why the need for Social Media Surgery events in Manchester?
    • Making sense of it all
    • “ Social media are media designed to be disseminated through social interaction, created using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques”.
    • What #%!$!...?
    • “ I Want Me Mum!”
    • What is it?
      • Social Media Surgery events are:
      • Informal afternoon meet ups
      • Social Media ‘clinics’
      • Panellists discuss problems
      • presented by audience
    • Why?
      • The inspiration:
      • Lots of people not sure where to start
      • Agencies and consultants in the region cannot service this need
      • on their own
    • Doing Something
      • Social Media Surgery events are:
      • Backed by Manchester Digital, MDDA and Creative TIMES
      • Informal, collaborative business development for the sector
    • At the event we agreed that
      • Social Media Surgery events can be a gentle introduction to Social Media Cafe Manchester
      • The target audience is people who have little experience of social media but need to know more for their work/business/organisation.
    • When
      • 2 nd Tuesday of the month,
      • starting next Tuesday, 8 th Dec 09!
    • When exactly?
      • Which time is best?
      • 12:30 – 2:30pm
      • vs.
      • 2pm – 4pm
      • 2pm – 4pm works best as it allows people coming in from out of town to attend an afternoon event, work needs permitting.
      • 12:30pm – 2:30pm implies it’s a working lunch event.
      • Lunch is *not* provided!
      At the event we agreed that
    • Where
      • Venue
      • MMU’s Business Incubator
      • Innospace on Chorlton Street
      • www.innospace.co.uk
    • How it works
      • Sign up via Social Media Cafe Ning
      • Post a social media ‘problem’
      • ‘ Doctors’ discuss this at the surgery
      • We will begin with an hour long ‘open surgery’ session where a case study is presented and audience input invited.
      • After this we will have an hour long ‘clinic’ of one-to-one meetings with the ‘doctors’.
      At the event we agreed that
      • 8 th December event is a soft launch.
      • We are trying out the venue and the concept.
      • Will invite @sweetmandarin to be video interviewed for the first case study (action for @realfreshtv).
