#nmbrek #edinburgh: 30 reasons to attend the September Edinburgh New Media Breakfast
Self promotion is very uncomfortable however you look at it, but equally it’s nice to bathe in a glowing feeling sometimes too, especially after a hiccup.
There’s no show without Punch
Gordon White and I have been presenting a good number of the monthly New Media Breakfasts recently. (Too many probably as it has been 3 out of the last 4, which is partly why we are inviting more guest speakers for next year).
The first of the three, “Facebook for Business” was very well received so we are repeating it in Fife this Thursday and are also using it as the base for next week’s webinar as well as taking it to Renfrewshire.
Last month however, we tried something a bit different for the “Social Media – Back to Basics” breakfast and it received mixed feedback. Whilst many first timers enjoyed it, some of our more experienced regular attendees were disappointed and, however hard you try, you can’t help but dwell on the negative comments.
This was why, after presenting the “Content is King” breakfast in Glasgow, Gordon and I were so pleased to see a sea of positive comments appearing on Twitter. So much so in fact I screenshoted them to show Mrs Barlow (reproduced below). Sad but true.
Back on Track
So we definitely won’t be repeating the “Back to Basics” one (at least in the same format!) but the “Content is King” breakfast will come, in association with WinningEntrepreneurs, to Edinburgh as planned next week. Hopefully the feedback from Glasgow will convince you to come.
Thanks again to all those who tweeted and made my day!
