The next meeting of the Cornwall Social Media Café (CSMC) will take place from 6pm on Wednesday 21 October at CUC’s Tremough Campus in Penryn. (map). The room is Seminar Room L in the Daphne du Maurier building, and it will be clearly signposted ‘Cornwall Social Media Café’.
It’s a bit of a special one, and we’re very excited about it.
We’re delighted to announce that we will have a VIP guest speaker in the form of Lloyd Davis, the original founder of the Social Media Café / Tuttle Club concept, and legendary man-about-the-social-media-scene in London. You can read more about Lloyd at his blog www.perfectpath.co.uk, and follow him on Twitter at @LloydDavis.
Lloyd will be delivering a talk on social media collaboration earlier in the day to students at UCF, and will stay on at Tremough to talk to the Cornwall Social Media Café in the evening. He’ll share with us the history of London’s Tuttle Club – on which CSMC is modelled – and give his expert view on where he sees social media heading in future.
I’ve attended a couple of events hosted by Lloyd in the past and I can personally vouch for the fact that he’s a very engaging, knowledgeable and inspiring speaker, as well as being generally a lovely person. Definitely worth making a trip to Tremough for!
Lloyd’s talk will be followed by informal networking, giving you the chance to catch up with other CSMC members and make new friends and contacts from Cornwall’s business, academic, media, not-for-profit and public sector communities.
If you’ve never attended a CSMC event before, this would be an excellent one to start with. You’ll get a great introduction to the Social Media Café concept from the founder himself, as well as getting to know other keen social media users from across the county.
CSMC events are free to attend, and new members are always very welcome. All we ask is that you register your attendance in advance so we have a rough idea of numbers on the night.
Teas, coffees and biscuits will be served on arrival.
In the meantime if you have any questions, please contact Aren, Laura or me.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 21st!
