Social Media Breakfast NH #2: Now on 3/27
An update for everyone on the state of the SMB NH # 2: It won’t be in Portsmouth on 3/20. The road blocks to getting this going in Portsmouth were astronomical, and in the end I decided to stick with one of the two more welcoming cities I’ve been working with: Manchester and Kingston. To that end the new date and location for SMB NH # 2 is March 27th in Kingston, NH.
I put up an EventBrite page for sponsor sign ups here: I’m looking for 2 sponsors (or one willing to take both slots) at $500 each. I am confirming the three speakers I had on the new date now – keep your eyes peeled for that announcement later as well. I’ll open up regular registration once I know if I have one or two sponsors.
The theme is still loosely Government 2.0. The speakers I have are going to be discussing things like clean air initiatives and how they’ve worked with governments and municipalities to make them happen as well as how public works is using social media to reach out to the people in their communities. It should be educational, and I’d like to encourage you to invite your local government officials to sign up – you don’t have to be in social media to gain or share knowledge this month.
The venue is a restaurant owned by a new client of mine, Rick’s Pond View. It does have WiFi, but as always I encourage speakers to bring a copy of their presentation on flash drive or CD in case the WiFi gets overloaded, as sometimes happens when you have many iPhones and laptops running. It is located right on the 125 in Kingston (92 Rte 125), ten minutes north of I 495, ten minutes south of Hwy 101 and at or near the juncture of Rts 111, 107, and 108. 30 minutes from Manchester and Portsmouth, 20 from Newburyport and Amesbury, 15 from Haverhill and 45 from Boston.
I’ll announce the sign up page link later today.
