I’ve been on a new learning curve over the past several days, having said blithely to some colleagues that a recorded Skype video would be forthcoming. Sooner said than done.
The video was needed to help promote the one day Social Media Roadmap workshops I’m presenting next week and the week after, in Brisbane (Sept 29) and on the Gold Coast (Australia) (Oct 2), in tandem with my friend and colleague, Associate Professor Michael Rees of Bond University. The workshops are being coordinated by Bond University’s Centre for Executive Education (CEE) and there are more details on the CEE website. (Update: Brisbane event now postponed to a date to be fixed; Gold Coast event proceeding as planned.)
The video up on the web now – and embedded below in this blog post, but there were definitely some anxious moments and while it is quite short there have been literally hours of learning and experimentation in turning the idea into reality.
One thing we learned was that Skype wasn’t up to the task – our pictures “froze” with our voices still going – but ooVoo was (there was a fee, but it was worth it). I’ll write more about the whole “adventure” in a separate post.
In the video we talk about what the workshop participants can expect and we emphasise that the day is focused on helping those attending acquire information and tools they can put to work immediately.
In a separate post I will be sharing some of the things I learned about the practicalities of recording and uploading the conversation.
