Scared of social media? Start being comfortable with the new way to build community and relationships - join attendees at New media Dayton's monthly unconference-style meetup this evening, Saturday, 02/13/2010, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at the Pub at the Greene (http://tinyurl.com/yeynqun). You'll learn how social and new media can be helpful to you and your business, whether you're an individual, employee, manager or owner.
Guest host and Realtor Gina Kay Landis (@GinaKay on Twitter), and presenter Brad Ditzell (@BradDitzell) will be leading the event. Ditzell, store manager of MacWorld at the Greene (http://www.applesales.com), will present "The Art of Listening."
If you haven't yet decided to attend, post your questions on Twitter with the #NMD hashtag and they will be posed to the host, speaker, or audience! Attendees may also ask questions or offer suggestions during the event opening and the interaction segment after Ditzell's presentation.
Sponsored by 252West Salon (http://www.252WestSalon.com), a Pedi-Party for 4 people will be gifted to the person using @252West in their Twitter updates 1 time per day, the most days in a row, prior to the event. One winner will also receive a 1-hour massage.
The informal nature of an unconference (loosely structured conference) means there's plenty of time for chatting, networking, sharing ideas and asking questions about social and new media. The event happens on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Check with Carole Hicks (http://www.carolehicks.tv or @carole_hicks on Twitter) for details so you don't miss out!
