Firstly sorry again for not being able to make the first event (v.annoyed at the flu taking over.)
Whilst the format of the first Cornwall Social Media Café was relaxed, we’ve had mixed feedback on the format going forward. Ideally we’d like to alternate a more informal event, with one that is more structured with speakers sharing their knowledge on all things social media etc.
I’ve already made an approach to Lloyd Davis, founder of the Tuttle Club, (the original Social Media Café and London’s Friday morning get together) to ask if he might be able to come down and speak/share his knowledge with fellow social networkers in the west! He’s really interested, but just needs to be able to justify taking time out of the big smoke. He’s going to keep me posted if he has a business meeting in the SW that he may be able to coordinate with coming along to CSMC.
In the meantime if you’re new to Cornwall Social Media Café and wondering what exactly the point of it is, or just need reminding, Lloyd has published an Annual Report explaining:
- How it started
- Some of the thinking behind it
- What’s happened in the past year
- Where things might go next
Well worth a read, download the Tuttle Club Annual Report here.
I’d like also like to mention a quick thank you to the media for their support prior to the first event and I know many of them have expressed an interest in coming along to future events, which is great.
