I am doing the ending key note at the Social Media 4 Nonprofits Conference in Silicon Valley today. Here’s the description:
How nonprofits can stay focused given all the distractions inherent in today’s attention economy? Social media doesn’t have to be overwhelming– you can take control back. This session will teach you some techniques that you can immediately put into practice and help you work more efficiently and effectively, enabling you to achieve more in less time and ultimately increase the return of your efforts.
My talk is a call to action to nonprofits to be more intentional and mindful in how they curate and consume content from social networks. I’ll be talking about the art and practice of good curation and also share some techniques for staying focused while doing working on social media for practitioners.
