Founded in August 2010 by Ross McCulloch of Third Sector Lab, Be Good Be Social brings together third sector professionals interested in social media for social good. The events are a chance to learn, debate and connect with others working for non-profits, charities and social enterprises. Unlike traditional conferences Be Good Be Social combines networking, inspirational talks, practical workshops and, importantly, the chance to collaborate in a relaxed, friendly environment. You’ll hear real-life case studies, ground breaking new ideas and hands-on solutions.

The events are for social media newbies as well as the digital die-hards. Coming along to Be Good Be Social will help you understand:

– The practicalities of where to start with social media.

– The benefits of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, blogging and beyond for third sector organisations.

– The risks involved in your organisation’s social media presence.

– Strategies for effectively engaging with supporters, donors and partners.

– How you can measure your social media success.

Be Good Be Social wouldn’t have evolved as quickly as it has without the support of the third sector sounding board which includes Stuart Glen (One Kind), Marc Bowker (Quarriers), Hugh Wallace (Scottish Museums), Sara Thomas (MND Scotland), Clare McDowall (Small Change Fund, Canada), Rosie McIntosh (Oxfam Scotland), Julia Morrison (SCVO) and Marie Duguid (The Melting Pot).
