We’re always excited when the next NFPtweetup comes round, but this time we’re *very* excited as there will be a live stream of the event allowing people to watch and listen in from the comfort of their own home!
So if you missed out on a ticket or didn’t fancy the trip to London this Wednesday 16 February, then the live stream is definitely for you. You can watch the next NFPtweetup event here and join in the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #NFPtweetup. Details of the line-up and speakers can be found here and at the end of this blog post.
What is NFPtweetup?
NFPtweetups are quarterly meet-ups for those working in the charity sector who are interested in digital and social media, and other new technologies. You can check out a beginner’s guide here. They are part learning, part sharing, part social, collaborative, casual and very friendly. There’s lots of great case studies and I always come away having learnt something new.
The events are deliberately very different to traditional conferences and seminars, bringing charities together for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and networking in a fun, informal setting.
