Social Media Year in Review – April 2010 Victoria BC

Rod Cooper organized BC Social Media Summit April 7th as a fundraiser for his participation in The Ride To Conquer Cancer . Speakers included Chris Burdge, Rod Phillips, Tracy McAllister, Paul Holmes, Terri Davies, Rob Cooper, Ross Dunn, Janis La Couvée. My presentation “Building a Brand, Lessons Learned from Twestival Victoria” is here.  


Evening tweetups continued sporadically. We met at the Bard and Banker on April 17th for a great evening out.   

April 14th also marked the beginning of the very successful “gents #victoriatweetup” organized by Frans Jonker. These continue on a regular monthly basis. Contact Frans for more details. 

April’s Social Media Club meeting topic was “Traditional Media Meets Social Media” with participation from Deborah Wilson (CBC), Dana Hutchings (CHEK News), Bryan Capistrano (the Q! and the Zone), Amanda Farrell (Monday Magazine) and Sarah Petrescu (Times Colonist). The discussion and debate were lively! Here are Yule Heibel’s original and follow up posts. Did you attend? What did you think?
