June 2014 Lancaster Social

Our second Lancaster Social meeting. Reconnect with familiar faces or make new contacts, mingle, chat and learn something new from our ten minute speaker who will give you the low down on a free or low cost online tool that you might find useful. Each meeting you’ll learn about a different tip, trick, tool or topic!

After the quick talk, there’ll be time to grab a brew and do some networking with the other attendees and whilst you’re at it, if you have any burning business questions you’d like to try and get answered you’ll be able to write them down. After the networking everyone returns to their seats and we’ll all find out what the questions are and throw them open to the audience to see if anyone out there knows an answer.

The Lancaster Social meeting is an open cross sector networking opportunity and a great way to potentially improve your own knowledge base.

February 2014 Lancaster Social

The first Lancaster Social event.

The Lancaster Social is an event held three times a year in the Lancaster district as an open forum. Any individual, organisation or service are welcome to join us, our hope is to create a broad network for the cooperative cross-pollination of experience and ideals. Each meeting has a specific format incorporating a QA session where you can bring your digital/social media queries; a short introduction to an open tool to use by yourself or your organisation; and the chance to meet and make connections in a relaxed environment.
