Are you a non profit organisation in Ireland and interested in exploring solutions for some of the leadership and management challenges many non profits are facing in 2011?
Then check out the Partnering For Success conference being orgganised by Microsoft Ireland that takes place on the 5 May 2011 in Dublin.
I am delighted to have been approached by Microsoft Ireland to speak at the conference about how you can integrate social media into your business processes to support your organisations goals – whether they be lobbying, raising awareness of your campaigns, attracting and keeping connected to volunteers or fund raising – and I have invited to join me on stage The Special Olympics Ireland to share some of their insights on what it has meant to them to start to integrate social media communications into their organisation.
There is also an exciting opportunity for two non profit organisations who attend the conference the chance to win the opportunity to be mentored by a department within Microsoft Ireland for one year.
Date: 5 May 2011Time: 9:00am – 3:30pm Venue: The Morrison Hotel, Dublin Investment: 30 euro
