Really Useful Day: Social media for councils | London | May

15 May 2015 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

We’re sorry: this event is now full. However, we have another identical event in Tunbridge Wells on 22 April.

  • Do you work for a local authority or a voluntary organisation?
  • Are you interested in learning more about how social media can help get your messages across?

Local Direct and London Tri-borough are running a Really Useful Day on social media in London that could help you.

This is an identical event to the London Really Useful Day in February, and has been laid on because twice as many people applied for that event as we could fit in.

As with all Really Useful Days, the event will be practical and hands-on, with the emphasis on enabling councils and voluntary organisations to network, share knowledge and develop new skills.

You’ll hear from local authorities who’ve been doing interesting things with social media.

You’ll also work on an emergency flooding scenario and discuss topics including dealing with abuse on social media and evaluation.

This event is free, with lunch and refreshments provided.

The event is hosted by Ed Garcez, Chief Information Officer of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council ICT shared services.

How to apply for a place at this event

We’re sorry – this event is now full. However, you can join an identical event in Tunbridge Wells on 22 April.
