This event is sponsored by
Fierce Earth and Metapod Connect
Fierce Earth are happy to be sponsoring this months BSMC and to introduce Metapod Connect
Metapod Connect is a four-day course that will look at how to build strong, resilient and effective networks. Specifically it will break down, in manageable and achievable steps, how to do that both online (using social media and other internet tools) and “in the real world”. The course has been devised by Helga “network Nancy” Henry and Pete Ashton – artist, award winning blogger and happy resident of cyberspace.
Please speak with Dean on Friday if you have any questions or look here for the factual “booking details”, and some of the thinking behind the course and the material that it is going to cover is here.

Have you been before? If you’ve come along before then you’ll know that you’ll find a group of interesting people working in lots of different areas, all using (or looking to use) social media in what they do, whether that’s for promoting, collaborating or creating things online.
Are you new? If you’ve not come along before then you might like to know that it’s a very informal, friendly and chatty gathering – we try to make new folks feel as welcome as possible. Just come along, grab a drink and join the rest of us for a chat. If you don’t know anybody there, just come and say Hi to event organiser Karen Strunks who will introduce you to other attendees 🙂
