Teacambs for February 2013 – A report from CommsCamp13

by on 27 February 2013

Hello everyone

This month’s Teacambs gathering will have a couple of us feeding back from a massive gathering of local government social media types in Birmingham – CommsCamp. Well over 100 people came along to the event, which brought together the great and the good from local government together for the first time.

Given that the event was over-subscribed several times over, it looks like there is huge appetite from those interested in and/or doing social media in local government and the wider public sector to gather in an unConference format.

One of the challenges that we face in Cambridgeshire is that trying to sell ‘informal’ gatherings such as unConferences – especially given that they don’t have an agenda – to staff, is not an easy thing. How do we try and get people in local government and the public sector in Cambridgeshire to engage in the informal nature of social media when so much of the culture and structures re-enforce the opposite? 

Interested in your thoughts.

Teacambs – 4:30pm, Thurs 28 February, John Lewis Cafe, 3rd floor, Grand Arcade, Cambridge
