Special guests for June’s Teacamp

by on 14 June 2012

For our fourth Teacambs gathering, we are extraordinarily lucky to have the presence of two very special guests.

We have Jane O’Loughlin from Cabinet Office/Government Digital Service. She also convenes the Teacamp London gatherings in Whitehall. If you have any questions to ask about Cabinet Office’s new guidance on social media, she is the person to ask. For those of you coming to Teacambs for the first time, you may want to consider what this guidance – and the direction of travel as stated by the Minister for the Cabinet Office means for your organisation, given that it is now being applied by your organisation’s parent department in Whitehall.

We also have Jonathan James, Head of Customer Services for Cambridge City Council coming along too. 

We have not asked either of them to do formal presentations – these gatherings are informal by nature. We’ll be confirming the venue in the next week too. My suggested theme for this gathering is “Changing public sector organisational culture towards social media” – mainly because both of our special guests have got direct experience of this and my anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that some local organisations are still ‘far behind the curve’. 

The blog “A dragon’s best friend” has already scoped some of the issues out in a local (to Cambridge) context. What are the challenges facing you and your organisation? How can a gathering such as Teacambs help you overcome those barriers?

If you are coming along, please can you let us know either in a tweet to @Teacambs, via our Facebook page, or sign up via our EventBrite page. (If you cannot access any of these, please leave a comment in the comments field of this post or send an email to antonycarpen [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com)

A couple of you have said you are unable to come to this month’s event. Feel free to send an enthusiastic substitute in your place – yes, even if they are not in your communications team! Being passionate about digital and/or social media more than qualifies them, even if it is outside of their day job!
