Help program speakers and topics for Third Tuesday

Third TuesdayWho would you like to hear from at a Third Tuesday social media meetup? What topic would you like to hear discussed?

One of the great things about Third Tuesday is that we can program the speakers and topics to respond to the interests of you – the Third Tuesday community. So, I’m asking for your suggestions of the speakers and topics that you are most interested in and that you think other members of the Third Tuesday community would also be interested in.

Have you seen someone speak at a conference who absolutely blew you away? Have you read a book that gave you new insights into social media, community, search and the future of our online life? Is there a blogger who is writing great content that should be shared with others? Is there a company, organization or person who is using social media in a creative and cutting edge way?

Your suggestions will guide the programming for the winter sessions of Third Tuesday. So, please have your say and let me know who you think we should invite.

And thanks to our sponsors – CNW Group, Molson Coors Canada, Rogers Communications, Radian 6 and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts – we’re able to bring these speakers not just to Toronto, but also to the other Third Tuesday cities across Canada. Already this year, we’ve brought Shel Israel to Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. And just last week, we were able to bring Katie Paine to Ottawa.

So, who would you like to hear from and what would you like to discuss at Third Tuesday. Please offer your suggestion as a comment below or a tweet to @thornley.

  • Consider inviting Alex Langshur of PublicInsite as a speaker for the Tuesday meetups. In particular his tracking of social media during this H1N1 outbreak is providing great insight (no pun intended).

  • Would be cool if you could get Brogan and Julien Smith to come talk about Trust Agents!

  • The meetup on Social Media and Customer Reviews looks pretty interesting, but that is since I run my own sites which allow people to review products.

    It will be interesting to see how others have approached this and the results they have seen.

  • Would be interested in hearing/being a part of a panel on turning SM, marketing, PR campaigns from online to offline. Creating live functions, launches, etc. based on campaigns that satrted online and how to carry across the msg from the web to live in person.
