The Network We Cannot Live Without

“If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter.”

T.S. Elliot might have been a master of the written word, but even he knew that whittling business initiatives down to 140 characters or less wouldn’t be easy.

You might have tested the surging waters of social media already, or maybe you deem the words “follower”, “friend, “tag” and “trend” to have no meaning outside of the Oxford dictionary. Never fear — the INFORUM group has mustered some of the country’s top Tweeters, Diggers and Tumblrs to shed light on the network your business can’t live without.

The group, founded by Jenny Garber and Fiona Coogan began last October and hosts quality forums with expert speakers on a wide range of topics – so far guests have met Marion Hume (International Fashion Editor, AFR) and in the future, topics planned range finance and property management, confidence and communication, cultural appreciation and health and well-being.

Next week you can chew the virtual fat with Laurel Papworth, one of Forbes magazine’s Top 50 Social Media Influencers globally, and Lachlan Harris, former Senior Press Secretary to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

Over a two-course lunch at @ivybar they’ll discuss the reach of social media, and the opportunities it creates for digital tête-à-tête with wider communities.

There’s some priceless advice up for grabs here, so RT RT RT.
