Off-the-record conversations with social media leaders like you
Join a room full of smart social media leaders for 32 peer-to-peer, off-the-record conversations.
Unconferences are real-time, relevant discussions about the issues that matter most to you. There are no guest speakers, no PowerPoint presentations, and no podiums.
You set the agenda, you pick the topics that matter most to you — and you do it all in a room full of people with jobs like yours, at companies like yours, with challenges like yours.
During this meeting, you will:
- Meet lots of smart, generous people
- Learn actionable insights you can implement right away
- Collaborate with social media leaders like you
- Realize you’re not alone and that there’s a whole community here to help
- Talk about the issues that matter to you
- Experience a meeting that runs on time
- Have a productive work conference that’s actually fun
Our proven unconference meetings have been developed over seven years, 63 meetings, and the experience of thousands of participants.
No conference of speakers or panels can be quite as good as simply sitting down and talking with the people who have actually been there and done that. There’s no challenge you’re facing, no project you’re launching that someone else in this room hasn’t already worked on.
This is what makes these meetings so great — and it’s why so many SocialMedia.org members make sure they can get to as many as possible.
Why this meeting is so special
We’re talking about issues in real time
Every conversation is relevant to what you’re doing right now — because we’re picking topics on the fly during the meeting. It’s always about what’s most interesting to you, and it’s always better than topics picked months ago by professional speakers.
You’re with people just like you
There are no panels, presentations, or theoretical talks. You’re going to sit down with people just like you, with jobs just like yours, at companies a lot like yours — and you’re going to talk through the challenges you’re all facing. This is where everyone shares their wins and losses. These candid, off-the-record talks will leave you with practical, actionable ideas you can take back to your company.
It’s all about you
As a social media leader, you’re always on call to help with other people’s issues. Someone tweets something, someone puts up a blog post — and they own your day.
This is one of those rare chances to focus on yourself and the challenges you’re facing with people who understand exactly what you’re doing and want to help.
This is a day for you.
This is the biggest and best unconference of the year.
You’ll have more topic choices, and this is the one meeting where you get to collaborate with other Councils.
If you’ve been to an unconference before, you’ll notice this one is a little different. This is your opportunity to mix with other Councils, and it’s the only unconference with multiple morning topics to choose from.
Instead of being divided up by your Council, each unconference will have a unique morning theme — and you pick the unconference you want to join.
