Talking about social media


Back in October I gave a presentation about social media to Canadian Women in Communications.

As a result I was invited to talk about social media to the staff of On Screen Manitoba.

A colleague of mine attended my Canadian Women in Communications presentation and came up with an idea: to present a series of workshops delivered by me and hosted by my employer, National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI).

Beginning January 2010, the National Screen Institute in Winnipeg will hold three lunchtime workshops covering Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

This is the start of something I have aspired to do for a long time: to share some of my knowledge about all this internet stuff I read about and practice daily in my job as website manager and online content producer.

This blog is one place where I do that but I’ve learnt that I love to present in person and social media gets me pretty excited.

There are further plans in the pipeline which I’ll share when I know more.

I had my annual review with my boss last week. I told her how lucky I feel to have found my passion. Most of us wait a long time to discover a career we truly love. I’m so pleased to have found mine.
