I’ve got a few speaking engagements coming up over the next few weeks, plus here are a couple more interesting events, too. Here we go:
On Thursday in Washington, I am keynoting the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network’s “Social Media for Social Good conference.” This sold-out event promises to create 150 jazzed up, super excited communicators out to change the world.
In addition, on Wednesday through Thursday DC nonprofit folks will be attending the Bridge conference. I hope to see you there tomorrow!
On Monday next week, I will be in Montreal (a little R&R) and am participating in an informal lunch tweet-up. If you are in town, please touch base with Adele McAlear for information.
Kevin Dugan and Richard Laermer are increasing their Bad Pitch Blog efforts and having a tele-seminar for anyone who needs to improve their media relations — and by default social media. It’s called “Bad Pitch Night School (During The Day).” More details are at their demi-famous NEW url, http://crappypr.com, and it’s on Wednesday, July 29 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.EDT. The duo is giving out – count them – 10 free scholarships to some folks between jobs and some students who are student-like. And every registrant receives a free, electronic copy of “Full Frontal PR,” which, as Richard says, doesn’t suck.
Comcast is hosting its Social Media Seminar for Nonprofit Executives on August 4-5 in Philadelphia. This one has a pretty serious line-up of heavy hitters. I will be appearing on the panel dedicated to Choosing Your Social Media Strategy.”
Another conference full of heavy hitters: Mashable’s Social Good Conference is this August 28 in New York City. At this conference, I will be speaking on Social Media for Social Good again.
Finally, DC Twestival will be held on September 10 here in Washington. Place is yet to be determined, but our charitable beneficiary will be Miriam’s Kitchen, an organization that feeds and provides case management services to the homeless. I am working on the committee for this fall’s event, and promise more details. Until then, please save the date.
