Social Media for Social Good Events Coming to a City Near You
While the rest of you have been enjoying the summer partying on the beach, TechSoup’s NetSquared organizers have been plotting and scheming in front of their computers. The sacrifice has been worth it. Now, we’re now ready to launch our biggest event series yet: Social Media September.
During our month of social media for social good-themed events being held in cities across the globe NetSquared organizers are offering free workshops and events.
Want to get one-on-one help with your social media? Join a Social Media Surgery in Vancouver and Peterborough, Canada; Guatemala City; or Cambridge and Manchester, United Kingdom.
Live in the USA? There are also surgeries in Naples, FL; Portland, OR; Traverse City, MI; and the Research Triangle, NC. You’ll know you’ve found a surgery when you see one of our volunteers in full surgeon costume!
Maybe a social media workshop is more your style? We have events scheduled for Douala, Cameroon; Adelaide, Australia; Wellington, New Zealand; Philadelphia, PA; and Honolulu, HI. And if you’re a fan of ridiculousness and are living in Chicago, join us for the Doctor Who Guide to Social Media Strategy.
However, what if you have the terrible misfortune to not have a Net2 group near you? There are several virtual events scheduled, including a global tweet chat on September 18.
Find your local
#nptech tribe by joining a NetSquared Local group.
