A Conference called SPEAK


http://www.areyouspeakingto.me/If you've been following my thoughts here, or on Twitter or Facebook for any amount of time I hope you'll have picked up that I am keen on thinking how the Church and individual Christians and organisations can get to grips with this 'new media' world we live in - so when I was asked to put an ad on the blog for something coming up in the near future that directly addresses this I couldn't resist. It's being arranged by someone I follow on Twitter called Darrell Vesterfelt or @dvest as he's known and he writes this:  



"I am hosting a conference on September 8th called Speak.  Speak is a conference by Sheepish Design focused on your church's online communications. The goal is to engage in relevant conversations around using your website design, facebook, blog, twitter, youtube, mobile website and email marketing better. This will happen through short TED style talks on each topic by specialists in their field. The event is designed to be a conversation starter and will only be 2.5 hours long. You can check the website for more information."


This event will be in Minneapolis, but will also be streaming live online for free.  We are hoping to spread the word a little bit about this event, as it is our hopes to equip the church as much as possible."

The emphasis above is mine - as it sounds good to me - too good not to let you all know about it...
