Theme for the second Social Media Breakfast: Government 2.0 (how utilities, organizations for the environment, and more work with and from municipalities and other entities using social media to achieve goals)
The second Social Media Breakfast NH (hashtag #smbnh) will be all about topics related to Government 2.0. In this struggling economy and shifting paradigm we need to be working together to be more successful and better weather the storm. We should be pulling in all aspects of technology, new media, old media and social media to succeed. This meeting will help us lay the foundation for a richer, better education, tech and new media community in NH.
In addition to myself, who will be your host and MC for the morning, you will have three speakers giving three brief presentations on topics relating to the theme for the morning.
‘Electric Tweets‘ – Why @psnh followers increased 1,700% in one week Public Service of New Hampshire’s Martin Murray will discuss the electric utility’s use of Twitter and other social media.
Boston Police Department is sending John Daley to discuss their web outreach efforts via Twitter and other new media.
Now or Never Media‘s Bill Rogers and his partners in clean air initiatives will discuss how they use social media to get the word out and reach out to municipalities for change.

In addition to preparing for the next Social Media Breakfast NH on 3/20 (hashtag #SMBNH), I’ve also been prepping for two speaking gigs this week and doing some buzz building for Pete Yorn’s 3/15 show (I’m going, so I want to make it a loose tweet up if possible.

At Geek Girls Camp I will be teaching two workshops and giving one presentation. There are still tickets available for this as well at this link. My workshops are ROI is Not Money and Managing Work Flow in Social Media and my presentation will be on Blogging 101. I hope to see you there!
For the Pete Yorn show you can grab tickets here – let me know in comments if you are coming so we can plan something!
The first Social Media Breakfast was a success! Thank you all for coming – we had a packed house in spite of the weather. (Link to recap with video and audio)
The next Social Media Breakfast will be on 3/20 in Portsmouth, NH, venue TBD.
The theme is Government 2.0, with a focus on how local government is using social media, how charities and organizations are using social media to work with government, etc. I am still lining up and adjusting speakers, once I have finalized the roster I will post it here.
Please let your local government know about this – I’d love to have a mix of social media types and government there to share ideas and talk out the issues – remember, in 2009 we want to reach out beyond our social media bubble.
To discuss possible speaking slots or sponsorship, please call the 800 # in the nav bar above or drop a line via email. If you have a venue idea, or other ideas please put them in the comments.
Hashtag continues to be #SMBNH
I want to extend a warm thank you to our sponsors: venue and equipment sponsor Southern New Hampshire University, and food and drink sponsor DimDim. As an added bonus, DimDim will be live casting the breakfast! Details on how to watch the live cast will be posted to the FaceBook Group for Social Media Breakfast NH and on the Uptown Uncorked FaceBook Page when we get closer to the venue.
Yes, I can confirm that there will indeed be WiFi for your laptops for note taking and live tweeting the event – I will be giving the password and username out the morning of the event. DimDim will have the hardline for a smoother live cast.
I plan to start things off with breakfast buffet and mingling from 8:00 to about 8:45 AM, then have speakers making brief 10 – 15 minute presentations and Q&A sessions, with more mingling after they are done. The event is scheduled to end at about 10:00 AM. It will be in the Hospitality Center Ballroom on the Southern New Hampshire University Campus in Manchester, NH.
I am awaiting confirmation on the last two speakers, so stay tuned for updates on this post, but we have confirmed that Jen Zingsheim, Vice President of Products and Services at Custom Scoop, will be presenting on bridging the gap between old media and new media.
I am very excited to meet many of you for the first time, to see some of you again, and to share ideas.
Upcoming Social Media Breakfasts will be touching on topics such as how to effectively work with programmers and other professionals to get your projects off the ground, government 2.0, working with various generations (millennials, gen x, boomers) and more.
