Be Good, Be Social

22 February 2011

Increasingly, BIG in Scotland has been using social media channels like Twitter and Facebook to develop a discussion with our customers, stakeholders and the public about our shared aspirations. We think that hearing what others have to say about us is as important as telling others about BIG, and this is essential to helping us meet our goal of helping communities and individuals most in need. It’s been an exciting journey so far but we know that we still have much to learn from social media and how it can help our organisation to develop.

Be Good Be Social

That’s why we are delighted to have been chosen to host the next Be Good, Be Social event on 7 April at our Glasgow offices. These events bring together third sector professionals from all across Scotland who are interested in social media for social good. They are a chance to learn, debate and connect with others working for non-profits, charities and social enterprises all across Scotland. We have been a supporter of Be Good, Be Social since the beginning and have already made a number of new contacts with whom we have shared our learning, not to mention 1,200 Twitter followers!

We’re looking forward to welcoming our friends to our Clydeside office on the 7th April for what I am sure will be an inspirational, educational and enjoyable event. And who knows we might event gain a few new friends to join us in our social media revolution!

    We’re glad Be Good Be Social is being hosted by Big this year. It was always going to be tricky to match The Melting Pot, it’s such an amazing venue, but I think we’ve managed to find an inspirational space hosted within an organisation that’s a big part of the third sector – no pun intended.

    Cannot wait until 7th April!
