Social Media Experts

miagi

There are none!

(WORLD) Today in a discussion with a potential client, who were looking for social media experts with the aim of making them just the same, I came out with this juicy takeaway:

…strive to become expert students not just experts!

Everyday I learn something new about online platforms and technology, and their potential application. I think I know a lot (and there are obviously people who know more than me) although I am aware I don’t know a lot more.

For any individual or organisation/company, it’s not about becoming an expert but fostering an environment and attitude to know there is always more to learn—thus enabling a process of exploration and forward approaches rather than reliance on what you know now (because I guarantee in this ever-evolving-web-world it will).

Cultivate Part Two

One day review.

(GBR) A quick video review from our one day corporate training with a group of arts professionals in the East Midlands region—we had lots of fun and presented lots of social media ways to engage, promote and market their activities:

We were delighted to programme MediaSnackers training for the East Midlands cultural sector to present and explore a full range of possibilities in social media and online platforms. The session had energy and was inspiring and successfully bridged the gap between theory and practical application. Many left wanting more of the same and the training will ultimately help to bring the cultural offer to new audiences across the region.

S4C Internal Masterclass

Sianel Pedwar Cymru.

(WAL) Today I’m delivering an internal masterclass session for the guys at S4C—the Welsh language channel.

Attending will be officers from Business Affairs, Commissioning, Legal, Marketing and Press, Research plus the Web team. My session kicks off a series of internal ‘myth-busting’ seminars.

We asked MediaSnackers to open our eyes to what’s out there on the web, and highlight the opportunities we’re missing out on. Response to DK’s session has been great—the pace was fast and exciting, the group was energised and enthused, and it’s served well to trigger debate about taking different approaches to communicating and networking. We’re now working on how we can integrate the opportunities into our planning processes… and looking forward to maximising the potential of the media across the full scope of our work.

Delyth Griffiths, Director of Business Affairs
