Earlier this year in Vancouver, my wife/partner/co-conspirator Alexandra Samuel led a workshop jointly with Jason Mogus for the Hollyhock Leadership Institute. The topic: Web 2.0 and what it means for your organization. The approach: hands-on and intensive. The response: overwhelming and delighted.
So why not spread this Web 2.0-y goodness? Thanks to the good folks at the Centre for Social Innovation, Alex and Jason are bringing the social web gospel to Toronto. The scoop:
Web 2.0 and Your Organization
July 24 & 25th, 2007
Centre for Social Innovation
215 Spadina Avenue, Toronto
How can your organization use social media tools to deepen your relationships with supporters, reach new audiences and raise more money? More than twenty people discovered the power of social media tools like blogs and wikis through a workshop I co-taught with Jason Mogus on Web 2.0 and Your Organization. Jason and I had so much fun teaching that March workshop in Vancouver, and got such a positive response from participants, that we will be offering the same workshop in Toronto this summer.
Here’s the skinny:
Are you interested in how online communities like Flickr, MySpace, and YouTube can empower your members and customers to carry your message out into the world? Could your organization benefit from deeper collaboration among your team members, clients, partners or the public? Could better knowledge-sharing, stronger relationships and closer communications inside your organization and with your core supporters foster more efficiency, insight and effectiveness?
The latest generation of “Web 2.0″ or social web strategies and tools offer powerful opportunities for organizations to improve the way they work, communicate their messages, empower others, and serve the public. In this workshop you will learn how the latest tools for online collaboration and community building can make your organization smarter and more effective.
This workshop is designed for communications strategists, marketing managers, and webmasters who are interested in how this evolution of the web can help evolve your organization’s online strategy. We will give you the tools, knowledge, and most crucially, the vision for how your organization can use the web as a stronger agent of change. Weâ€™ll also cover the nuts-and-bolts, introducing the latest tools so that you know which options are most promising for your needs.
This workshop will take place from 6pm to 9pm on July 24th, and from 9am to 5pm (with lunch break) on July 25th.
