A toe in the water… {revisted}: Comms2Comms presentation

At the Comms2Comms network meeting in Wellington on 27 May 2009 I made a presentation on “A toe in the water”. The focus is on using social media for good causes.

My talk was a follow-up to an article published in Foresee Communications “Fundraising in New Zealand”, called “A Toe in the Water: using social networks for good causes” in September 2008.

See my blog post about the presentation: “Facebook – straight from the horses mouth”.
