Your Social Media Tool Box (Happy Hour Speed Learning) – June 7th 2010
When: June 7, 2010, 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Where: Oasis Restaurant, Holiday Inn Airport at Gulf Coast Town Center
Sponsor: Elemental Stone and Waterworks, Inc.
For the next Social Media Club of Southwest Florida event, learn the nuts and bolts of online networking. If you don’t know a tweet from a blog – or if you’re looking to fine tune skills you already have – you’re sure to learn many helpful tips and tricks.
The format is going to be a little different. Instead of the usual lecture and panel Q&A, expect to engage in lively interactive “speed learning” roundtable sessions, each facilitated by a different SMCSWFL steering committee member. You may bring a laptop if you wish, and feel free to roam from session to session to get the most out of this dynamic educational event. Be ready to ask plenty of questions. It’s all about you and your specific needs.
Each 20 – 30 min session will focus on a particular online platform. Each is listed below, along with its facilitator:
LinkedIn – Gail Lamarche, Director of Marketing at Henderson Franklin Starnes & Holt, P.A.
Twitter – Michelle Hudson, Social Media Editor at the News Press
Foursquare – Chris Silk, Social Media Editor and Theater Critic at Naples Daily News
