Social Media in the Conversation Lifecycle

Toronto, Canada/ Social media is not an isolated event, nor is it the sole avenue in facilitating a conversation. This presentation will look at how social media is a strategic element in the conversation lifecycle and when used effectively can offer valuable insight at varying states of development (product or service). Attendees will gain practical tips on using social media and other channels to improve their organization’s overall conversation (how to involve them, when to involve them, why to involve them). Attendees will also gain insight into where in the lifecycle social media could be most effective. This presentation will use feedback and examples from Twitter-posted questions and will encourage attendees, registrants, and non-registrants to participate in the Twitter questions. Questions will be projected from our physical office to reach passersby and tweak an interest in the conversation.

VENUE INFORMATION: Akendi’s Toronto office (30 Duncan Street, Suite 203) will host approximately 45 guests to attend the event in-person. It will be a seated presentation, classroom style. We will also stream the event on our website as we have an office location in London, UK and they would like to participate as well.

Design Thinking in Social Media

Ottawa, Canada/ Social Media Breakfast Ottawa. This month's speaker is a bit different from our usual marcom and social media expert-types. Joining us will be Dominira (Dom) Saul who is the Director of User Experience Design with Akendi, a human experience design firm. Yes, that's right, we've invited a designer in to learn from this month! And what we hope Dom will teach us is a little bit about design thinking. Wikipedia presently defines design thinking as: ". . . a process for practical, creative resolution of problems or issues that looks for an improved future result. It is the essential ability to combine empathy, creativity and rationality to meet user needs and drive business success." As Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto would suggest, the way the designer thinks and solves problems can be applied to how business is conducted -- social media practitioners included! In his presentation entitled Design Thinking in Social Media, Dom will introduce us to design thinking ideas and showcase a methodology that he follows in his work. Having worked on Flip video camera software, Dom will use it as a case example to illustrate design thinking concepts, tools and techniques in a relatable way. To make these concepts useful to you, he'll apply these design thinking concepts, tools and techniques to the business strategies you might use with social media as part of your tactical plans. Want to learn from Dom Saul? Sign up today by selecting the 'Register Now' button!
