Some news and client updates

Who knew that running your own business could keep you too busy to blog all the time? Well, okay, most people know that, especially my clients. So to make up for it, here’s three kinds of updates.

1. Not for profit work and presentations

I’ve always been keen to use the skills that I have to help not-for-profit organisations in the best way that I can, whether that means collecting on the street for Women’s Refuge, or providing web advice. When So Content becomes more financially sound, I want to spend at least 10% of my time on charitable projects. For now, while I’m trying to generate paying business, I don’t have a whole lot of time to seek out pro-bono work, but I’m always happy when people approach me. In that vein, I was honoured when David Barrow from Comms2Comms asked me to come and present to the group:

” All of us have awareness of Web 2.0 tools and some are implementing them already. Others want to but need to know a bit more about how to actually go about it – they need help as opposed to going there and having a go themselves. It’s more like we’re ready for Social Media 102 now, us all having passed Social Media 101. Many have launched blogs as a feature of new websites. I know you had a lot to share”

So here’s the presentation I prepared for them. It’s short on words because I talk a lot on top of the slides.

2. Some client updates

3. Finally, a me update:

I’ve  just accepted a full-time three-month contract at Customs which will be starting soon, so accordingly, I won’t have a lot of time to accept new clients, but if you’re thinking I could help you with your business, get in touch anyway and we can probably work something out. Hurray!
