FREE SOCIAL MEDIA FOR CHARITIES SEMINAR
Thursday 27th September 2012
Gill Akaster House, 25 Lockyer Street, Plymouth, Devon, PL1 2QW
Alistair Gleave, Speaker, SocMed Entrepreneur and co founder of GrowMyCharity, provides an entertaining and illuminating talk about how Facebook can be used to engage – and disengage – with people! The ups and downs, the do’s, the don’ts and the downright ugly!
Using case-studies, campaigns and a warts ‘n’ all expose of this popular SocMed tool, Alistair will guide you through the steps of using Facebook to engage and promote your charity.
Building your charity and communicating your cause is crucial to your charity’s development.
So you’ve got facebook page – how are you going to incorporate this in your fundraising/communication strategy and really make it work for your organisation?
Social Media is growing at an amazing rate and this Masterclass will help you build your knowledge and develop your skills.
As with all our training seminars, interaction and participation are encouraged and we welcome all charities who want to learn how to make better use of these new media technologies in a fun and challenging way.
Our event sponsor, Santander, will also be talking about the Santander Foundation which funds local, regional and national charities for their work within the UK. They are committed to helping disadvantaged people through their two charitable priorities. Formerly the Abbey Charitable Trust, the Foundation was set up in 1990 and has given more than £36 million to charities in the UK. In 2012 the Foundation will be increasing its grants budget to £4.5 million.
As part of our commitment to Charities across the South West these events are provided by Gleave Media and Shine Charity Recruitment. Gill Akaster solicitors are supporting this event with the provision of the seminar venue.
