Social Media for Change - prepared for Charitycomms, 22 Oct 08

3,621 views

Published on

I produced this for a mainly communications audience and wanted it to have visual impact, as opposed to a load of text and bullet points - particularly as it was only 20 minutes long. Unfortunately, that means a lot of the context from my commentary on the day is absent. Shame it wasn't recorded! There is, however, a podcast featuring interviews from the event here: http://www.charitycomms.org.uk/events/charitycomms_seminars/20081022/charitycomms_seminar and an article to accompany the slideshow here: http://www.charitycomms.org.uk/articles/insider_secrets/why_charities_need_to_use_social_media (you may see Page not found when and have to refresh)
