Sometimes we’re just as confused as the next NGO. What’s the difference between Vimeo and Youtube? How do I control the message if I let my supporters tell it? Is there more to Pinterest than hair and recipes?
As with most things (like the Mad Men season finale), we think the best approach is to gather around the water cooler and share notes.
We’re launching a tweet chat series that aims to bring us, as global health NGOs, together to ask questions and share tips on social media. We’ll have a special guest for each session and a topic of conversation. Our first series is Thursday, June 14th at 2:00 EST and features Mo Scarpelli. She’ll help us discuss how to use multimedia for effective storytelling.
Mo is a Brooklyn-based filmmaker and multimedia producer. From journalistic coverage to non-profit activism to conveying the ethos behind a brand, Mo uses stories to connect people, purposes and ideas. Mo spent more than two years directing, shooting, editing and producing major media assets and campaigns for the non-profit organization charity: water. Before that, she managed multimedia content and reported for The Wall Street Journal. With a Bachelor’s in Journalism at the University of Missouri, Mo spearheaded multimedia storytelling for traditional news outlets such as KOMU-TV 8 (Mid-Missouri’s NBC affiliate), KBIA radio and The Columbia Missourian before moving to New York City.
The twitter event will be held 6/14 at 2:00 EST and use hashtag #GHchat.
Feel free to submit questions before the chat or join us for the live hour. An archive of the chat will also be posted on our EndtheNeglect blog. If you are interested in participating or looking for more ideas on how you can incorporate social media into your global health promotion, be sure to check out the event on Twitter.
