(GBR) I'm up in Lancashire today speaking at the Wigan Youth Service conference.
The brief is to inform and engage the audience in 'new' media and technology of the 21st Century to enable services to communicate effectively with young people (times two as delivering the same seminar twice).
The purpose of the event was to introduce the concept and uses of social media to the widest audience possible—from the Director of Children and Young Peoples Services, face to face youth workers to young people in two session. As our guide, interpretator and 'expert' DK was exceptional providing the history, knowledge and practical applications of social media in a medium that was accessible to all, immediate and relevant; all the participants were motivated, challenged and engaged.
DK allowed us to begin to think what Services for Young People need to do to communicate with young people in a rapidly evolving media age, this is a highly recommended input, so good we have invited him back.
