All rights reserved by Trixta Photography1. We’re livestreaming the whole night.
From 6.30pm on Thu May 17th, after everyone has had their sarnies and wine, we’ll be livestreaming the speakers. Simply hit LIVE on this website to watch the speakers and join in the chat via the #begoodbesocial hashtag on Twitter. Huge thanks once again to Beyongolia for working her video wizardry on our event. As well as the livestream we’re also lucky to have professional photographer Rich Dyson giving up his time to help out. The photos will be up on our Flickr group and the videos will be on our YouTube channel post-event.

2. Big Lottery Fund Scotland are hosting again
If you managed to secure a ticket get along for 6pm on the night to ensure you get at least a glass of wine! Things kick off at 6.30pm sharp. You’re looking out for 1 Atlantic Quay, the big building at the bottom of Robertson St.

3. You can talk to Blackbaud about all things fundraising & mobile
Our lovely sponsors, Blackbaud Europe, will be on hand to chat about your fundraising needs and how you can use mobile to good effect. They really know their stuff so have a chat with them on the night.

4. Our speakers are pretty damn impressive
We don’t mean to blow our own trumpet but the speakers for this event are good, very good. We’ve got Louise Mcdonald, Young Scot Chief Executive, talking about what it means to use social media as a CEO. John Popham is making the trip up from England to speak to us about using social media to connect national and gloabal audiences with hyperlocal events. In particular John will be dicussing his latest, Nominent Trust funded, project Celebration 2.0. Our third speaker is Ally Tibbitt, as well as his work with STV Local Allly is founder of Greener Leith – run by local volunteers the group is dedicated to making Leith greener in every sense. Ally will be sharing his experience of using social media to bring about real change at a local level. So yeah, a pretty bloody impressive lineup. You can pose your questions for our speakers during the panel Q&A at 8.30pm by tweeting using the #begoodbesocial hashtag.

5. #BeGoodBeSocial is an ongoing conversation
We like to think of Be Good Be Social as more than just an event – it’s an ongoing conversation. As pretentious as that sounds it’s true, people use the hashtag to ask third sector related social media questions all year round. That makes us very happy. So tweet away using the hashtag #BeGoodBeSocial on the night, share photos/videos, ask speakers questions and join in the debate – whether you’re there in person or sitting at home in your jammies.
