Exciting times at Blink Towers just now. On Monday I was invited to give a talk on Blogging and Social Media at the Charity Retail Association‘s Annual Conference, held at Keele University. It was an amazing event and a wonderful insight into this very important world. Thanks to all of you who came along, and for all of the lovely feedback. Can’t wait to hear about all of your progress.
I was also a judge for the ‘Innovation in Charity Retailing’ award and was utterly amazed at all of the brilliant, creative and, well, innovative approaches being undertaken by charities of all scales. Congratulations to Scope for winning this particular award. Here’s their winning campaign #StripforScope, inspired by the classic Levis laundrette ads and featuring the rather lovely model, Jack Eyers.
Then on the 13th July I will be heading down to Somerset to give a talk about Social Media at the beautiful Babington House. If you are a member then please do come along. It’s a 60 minute affair talking about the differences in the key platforms and how you can make the most of them. It’s a great introductory session which should leave everyone feeling able to flash those ‘@’ and ‘#’s about with confidence!
All of this leads me rather nicely on to the fact that we have the July ‘Introduction to Blogging and Social Media’ workshop coming up. This is being held at Parlour in Kensal Green over two consecutive Tuesday evenings, the 7th and 14th July. We still have a few spaces left which we are offering at a 50% off last minute discount. Just quote ‘BlinkDisco’ when you contact us to book. You can see all about the workshop right here.
