Be Good Be Social as you know it returns on 17th May 2012 6-9pm at Big Lottery Scotland HQ in Glasgow. We’ve got three great speakers lined up and, for the first time, a panel Q&A session.

We’ve always taken on board feedback from Be Good Be Social attendees – we crowdsource all the speakers and we ask your opinions on how we should structure the evening.  We had tons of feedback asking for more practical hands-on social media training so I’ve put together a workshop programme in partnership with GCVS.

As well as the requests for training lots of people seem to like the idea of an all-day event, encompassing both inspiring talks and practical workshops. As luck would have it we were approached by GCVS recently to help them put together a digital media event and Social Media for Social Good was born.

Social Media for Social Good (still a working title) will take place all day on 26th April 2012 at The Albany Learning and Conference Centre, Glasgow. The event itself will be packed with amazing talks and a selection of practical workshops, encompassing topics such as video for the web, better blogging, facebook and twitter tips , social media strategy, online fundraising and more. We’re keen to keep the conference affordable so tickets will be under £100 – they’re going to be available via the GCVS website from 1st March onwards. We’ll let you know the full speaker and workshop line-up soon.

Don’t worry, Be Good Be Social as you know it will continue to run bi-annually but if our all-day event is a success we may continue to run these as well. Watch this space!
