WORKING DIGITAL DAY 3
Day 3 of Working Digital – well what to expect? After Day 2 of Working Digital, I didn’t think they could top it. To be honest, they didn’t, but they did make a damn good effort!
The final day did feature some of the most useful talks from the whole event…Namely one from Ryan Bell, an American who’s head of Corporate Sales at Hubspot – based in Dublin (the lucky lad). Hubspot’s one of the biggest inbound marketing companies in the world. They distribute a ton of FREE resources that are helpful to SMEs the world over. Well worth investigating them if you haven’t come across them yet.
The other helpful highlight of the day for me personally was Dan Spicer (right), Community Lead, from Hootsuite. As someone who uses Hootsuite Pro everyday, I figured I might get a tip or two…
Like Ryan, Dan had a good, humorous, informal way of delivering his brand of social media trends and tips. Plus he offered promotional codes for people looking to try out HootSuite’s Pro version and their University.
There were a few other speakers on the day as well – such as Guillermo Amodeo from IBM and the final keynote delivered from Michael Williamson. Michaels talk, Tracking Your Digital Footprints, was one that would make you wand to revert back to your Dumb Phone. Many-a-cautionary tale was rattled through at break-neck speed. No one tweeted – out of respect for privacy of his work
If you missed out on the day, then it might be worth watching some of the Working Digital 2014 presentations on the internet. And make sure you do your best to make it along next year…assuming it goes ahead again. A big well done to NSDesign and East Ayrshire Council too for making it happen again this year.
