Social Media Breakfast Edmonton #11, 8:30 - 10:30 a.m., Friday, Oct. 28th, 2011, CBC Centre Stage

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2011) - The Edmonton Social Media Breakfast (SMBYEG) is pleased to announce Nadine Riopel as this month's guest speaker.

The topic for the October SMBYEG is:

Utilizing Social Media Communication for Social Good

A new philosophy and new technological tools are reshaping the way we communicate with each other and with organizations. Meaningful content is king, being interested is as important as being interesting, and everyone has a voice. Ask yourself, as an individual, "what can I do to make a difference and to put more positivity out into the world?"

In many ways, charities themselves are lagging behind in this revolution; resisting the transition away from uni-directional flow of information and towards engaging and meaningful conversation. The bad news is that this limits our ability to make good things happen through them. The good news is that the power to change things for the better lies in your hands. Join us for some simple strategies and a candid discussion on October 28, 2011.

Stay after the discussion to network and share ideas within the realm of social media. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new-media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend.

Seating is limited and fills up quickly so hurry to RSVP on Eventbrite.com.
