Meeting mumtrepreneurs

On Friday afternoon, I took time away from business-to-business PR and marketing, volunteering to do some one-to-one advice sessions at a “Mumtrepreneurs” coffee afternoon at a primary school in nearby Welling. Around a dozen businesses took part, getting an overview of marketing from University of Greenwich lecturer Charles Oham before selling some products or services, …

Clippings.com – the architecture/design equivalent of Pinterest

It’s perhaps no coincidence that an AEC-oriented social scrapbook service has been launched hot on the heels of a surge of interest in Pinterest. Earlier this month, I got my invitation to join Pinterest. It was, apparently, the hottest things since, er, the last hot thing in social media, and I was quite looking forward …

Social & Mobile Business conference could have been more, er, social

On Tuesday, I attended an Information Age conference on Social and Mobile Business, held at the swanky Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel in Cadogan Place, Knightsbridge, London. [Update (17 February 2012): Peter Swaby’s review of the event, and links to presentations.] Business-like… It featured some excellent speakers – I particularly enjoyed Jonathan Brayshaw‘s talk on creating …

Most ‘authoritative’ Tweeters on sustainability

Earlier this year I wrote several blog posts about PeerIndex groups and their value in identifying individuals and organisations as ‘influential’ on Twitter in areas such as architecture and construction. Today saw the publication of a new PeerIndex of people or organisations who are seen as ‘authoritative’ on Twitter about sustainability. The launch was hosted, …

The half-day event, held fittingly at The Georgian Group in Fitzroy Square, was developed in conjunction with James Mott of Projectbook who has worked hard to build up an extensive community of heritage sector people. The intention was to help building …

Entrepreneurs and social media

Last week I spoke at an evening meeting of the Cass Entrepreneurs Network (an alumni group of Cass Business school at London’s City University) on entrepreneurs, PR and social media. The event, hosted at the CIPR’s headquarters in Russell Square, attracted a mixture of Cass and CIPR people, and, judging from their answers to my initial …

The pwcom blog – reborn

After six years of blogging with TypePad, I have just migrated my tech blog, ExtranetEvolution.com, to a new blog platform. This self-hosted installation of WordPress also supports my other sites, pwcom.co.uk and this blog, previously run on WordPress.com. I hope you like the new look and feel of the site(s). There have been some issues with migrating …

Fuelling the CIPR conversation

I already overuse the word “conversation”. I frequently use it in my preferred short definition of Web 2.0 or social media: “People having conversations online.” Indeed, I repeated this in a presentation I gave to the Kent IoD marketing group yesterday, and I frequently talk about exchanges on Twitter and blogs as “conversations”. Now it …

Constructing Excellence Social Media Forum

It says something about the construction industry that, given options to focus on ethics or on social media, there was more take-up for a forum on social media, but at least it meant that we had a good turn-out for Constructing Excellence‘s first social media forum, held at Arup’s Fitzroy Street offices in London yesterday. …

Make that blogging connection

Just before Christmas, I was invited to write a guest blog post (Fitzrovia, the construction industry and social media) for Fitzrovia News, a blog about a particular part of central London where I have worked and have since visited countless times. This came about through social media. I had posted a photograph of a pub – …
