Something to SIMPLY SMILE about


By Matt O’Neill


A few weeks ago, I was flattered to be asked to run a session at Simply Communicate’s “SMILE 2013” conference.


SMILE is an acronym for “Social Media Inside the Large Enterprise”. It takes place on Monday 23rd September and will be the largest event of Social Media Week London.


Amongst the heavyweight speakers, there will be some great comms people moderating other topics on the day. These include Neville Hobson,Benjamin Ellis, Rachel Miller, Luke Mepham, Ezri Carlebach, Wedge Black, Kevin Ruck, Chris Elmitt, Sobia Aslam, Dana Leeson and Sean Trainor.


ModComms (50% shareholder in EventExtra) will be there representing the business to run a discussion group aimed at exploring the value of Social Media for Internal Conferences. Its real advantage is in facilitating a lifecycle around events. We’ll have an opportunity to look at how Social tools can be used before, during and after events. And perhaps most importantly why this matters!


I always feel we should practice what we preach to those we work with. With that in mind, we’ve created the short video above which gives a little consideration to some of the issues we might discuss on the day. If you can’t see it below, go directly to it here.
