Shift Happens Interview

shifthappens

Riffing on the approach to take with this social media stuff.

(GBR) After keynoting the second day of the Shift Happen 2.0 Conference the other month, I was interviewed by lovely guy named Ian Aspin. This week the resulting video appeared on his Really Good Thinking blog.

Even though the context of the questions was around arts and cultural organisations, the answers I gave can be transferable across all sectors and industries:

Thanks Ian.

Cyfle Training

Lovely Scrummy training.

(WAL) We're in Cardiff at the funky offices of Cyfle, a training company for the Welsh Television, Film and Interactive Media Industry (amongst other things).

After a little orientation session with them last week we're back delivering a days training.

An excellent day of inspirational training! MediaSnackers delivered an energetic and challenging itinerary of knowledge share via creative missions that enabled Cyfle staff to fully interact with the exciting world of Social Media, whilst demonstrating the simplicity of digital tools to create stories to tell the world.
