There’s lots happening in Toronto in the next several weeks. Here’s a roundup of just a few of the communications- and social-media-related events.
Toronto Twitter Workshop (a Deep Dive), February 19
This workshop answers just about every question you have about using Twitter for business or the nonprofit world. You will learn to use Twitter to follow news, connect with influencers, uncover business opportunities or spread your nonprofit organization’s message. After this workshop, you will be on your way to becoming a Twitter power user. More info here.
Podcamp Toronto 2016, February 20-21
Despite the name, this free unconference, now in its 10th year, is about more than podcasting. Come out to Ryerson University to meet and learn from people who have a passion for digital media. As the website says, “All perspectives are welcome, and we have regular attendees ranging from brand-new podcasting hobbyists to seasoned digital marketers.” I will be speaking at Podcamp Toronto about the business of podcasting (the concept) as well as The Business of Podcasting (the book).
I will announce the date and time as soon as the Podcamp people publish the schedule. I will be speaking in room 361 at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 20. More info here.

Get known, get remembered, get business – with social content, March 10
I’ll be presenting this session at the IABC/Toronto Professional Independent Communicators group meeting. We’ll cover how to develop a strategy before you start thinking like a publisher, and how to make social media and content marketing work together for you. More info here.
