Are you a web professional working for a local authority? Are you interested in learning more about social media and how it can help get your messages across? Local Directgov is running a Really Useful Day on social media in Northallerton, North Yorks. It’s free, with lunch and refreshments provided.
As with all Really Useful Days, the event will be very practical and hands-on, with the emphasis on enabling local authorities to network, share knowledge and develop new skills. You’ll have the chance to hear from:
- Louise Kidney from the Government Digital Service (GDS) on open policy-making and what to do when social media goes wrong
- Diane Sims from Kirklees Council and Andrew Wilson from Thumbprint Co-operative on engaging communities using social media
- Sarah Lay from Derbyshire Council on social media evaluation
We’ll also be working on scenarios to develop your thinking, including an emergency flooding scenario.
Some comments from previous Really Useful Days:
“It was a 4 hour journey but well worth it.”
“V customer focussed – refreshing.”
“Excellent and really informative.”
“Like the practical, workshop style format.”
