“We are looking for experienced, dynamic real-time pros to suggest and lead TWTRCON Workshops at TWTRCON SF 2010,” says Tonia Ries, CEO and Founder of Modern Media, “TWTRCON SF 2010 is our fourth TWTRCON, and we have always received an overwhelming number of great speaker and topic suggestions while we are building the program. For our return to San Francisco (where we held our first event), we wanted to find a way to include more of those topics, and also to offer attendees the option of participating in sessions that were more in-depth, how-to and educational.” TWTRCON SF will take place on November 18, 2010.
TWTRCON Workshops are designed to let experienced Twitter business practitioners explore real-time applications, tools and platforms. If you think you have an area of expertise to share, here are the details:
- Topics should be related to the practical application of Twitter or other real-time tools in a business context.
- The material should be presented in an interactive, how-to format. Think education, as opposed to presentation. If you can incorporate examples, worksheets and demos, even better.
- All workshop instructors should be prepared to provide hand-outs or other session material that can be given to workshop participants onsite, and then posted online after the event.
If you would like to apply to lead a workshop at TWTRCON SF 2010, please submit:
- your name and contact information
- suggested topic for your workshop (“How to ….”)
- a brief two-sentence description of why the topic is important, focused on the bottom-line benefits of your topic
- what specifically attendees can expect to learn from your workshop
For examples, please see some of the TWTRCON Workshop topics here. Proposals should be sent to John Eckhouse at email@example.com and are reviewed as they are received. Workshop instructors are asked to prepare a 40-minute session. Note: Instructors will have free admission to the conference, but will be responsible for their own travel expenses.
“We are really excited about this new part of the TWTRCON program, and are really looking forward to seeing what kinds of topics people suggest. Our first workshop on Twitter Chats will be led by Angela Dunn, aka @blogbrevity and @odomandco — and we want to extend a huge thank you to Angela for helping us to develop the format and structure for the new TWTRCON Workshops,” says Tonia.
So, healthcare and pharma tweeters, what expertise could you share with others in the community?
Odom & Co would like to wish Angela Dunn well as she moves on to a consulting role providing her expertise in idea design for digital/social innovation to digital agencies, healthcare organizations and businesses. Please welcome Heather Welch, digital assistant, who will keep you updated via our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
