It’s the last one of the season! After this the SSMD’s will be taking a hiatus until August and then returning with monthly events in Glasgow and Edinburgh (on fixed monthly dates no less!) but let’s talk about that in August. For this event, at Moo Cafeteria, 9 Brandon Terrace, Edinburgh, EH3 5EA (go look at the posh cheese on toast!) we have three speakers, providing us with a bit of sunshine and entertainment:
Talking about the recent social media fuss over BP buying keywords on Google (which I’ll blog about later as well) will be the very knowledgeable Tim Barlow. Tim has been a great speaker at the New Media Brekkie events. Tim is the MD of internet marketeers Attacat and their website is well worth spending 30 mins on reading the case studies.
Donald has held senior public relations management positions in both the finance and manufacturing sectors. He has also managed consultancies in technology and general sectors and is now a Senior Lecturer in Public relations and Organisational Communication, in the School of Communication at Charles Sturt University. Donald’s interests include ethics in modern PR – so he’ll be the guy heckling Tim, depending on what Tim says about BP – and the impact of technology in PR, so it makes perfect sense that he’s coming to the country where getting a signal for Foursquare can be a challenge in itself.
Murray has tread the perfect path of many a digital warrior, starting off as a journalist before moving into digital news and then leaving Australia to come to Scotland where, after working with Nixon McInnes for a while, set up Digital Mud which is so far ahead of the game when it comes to social media metrics and using them for positive customer engagement it’s just frightening. Murray also has a MBA, so between that and Donald I think this is the most brainpower we’ve had at one SSMD.
Now, due to the cost of airfares, the cost of this dinner is £400, but if you book before Friday at noon you can get it at the slapdown bargain price of £25 and you can do that by clicking the button below or this link.
As always with Moo, it’s BYOB/BYOW so worth remembering that. (and if you come to all the Edinburgh SSMD’s it might be worth getting a Moo loyalty card!)
Any questions, as always drop them in the comments section and hopefully see you next Tuesday night. And, yes, the Twitter hastag #ssmd will be in use for those who can’t make it.
