Free Digital Media Clinic – 25 September

teaandbiscuitAnnouncing the second free Digital Media and Communications Clinic
Friday, 25 September 2009
Kings Cross, London

About: The Digital Media Clinic is for anyone who would like a short burst of free one-to-one consultancy.

The sessions are in 3/4 of an hour bursts and will be held at a venue in Kings Cross, London on a first come, first served basis. They are run by Kathryn Corrick. For those who live outside London, do contact me, and we can take things from there.


What? Digital Media and communications clinic. Que? One to one sessions of 3/4 of an hour, covering all areas of digital media and communications – social media, PR, advertising, marketing and business development. Think of it as a cosy, modern-day Miss Marple chat – problem solving over cup of tea (and may be a bit of cake).
What kinds of problems can you help with? I’ve worked professionally in the digital and communications space since about 2000. Take a look at the kinds of things I’m involved with and do here or have a look at my LinkedIn profile as a possible starting point.
In the first Digital Media Clinic issues discussed ranged from business development and campaign planning through to SEO and social media. The kinds of companies who came along included a telecoms start-up, interior design company, PR agency and a social enterprise.
Where? Kings Cross, London
When? 10.00-17.00, 25, September 2009

A course in spreading the word: version II

A good time was had by all last week in the two day course on viral/spreadable marketing held at the Stephen Lawrence Centre, London for Ravensbourne College of Communication and Design.

I have to particularly thank Gavin Williams (or @wineoftheweek as he’s known on Twitter) from Classic Wine Direct, who came to speak to the class on Friday afternoon and help with the judging of the final team pitches. His talk really helped bring to life how an SME can use social media effectively to launch a product, service or company and gave insights into the importance of passion and personality in brand identity.

The presentation below represents the structure and main parts to the course, but it should be emphasised that a lot of discussion and work in groups also forms a large part of the course content.
