I was invited to speak at the Green Is: Digital networking and conference event in NYC this December 5th at 1 pm. I'll be talking about "Socializing Green Media": Learn how to more effectively use social media to start conversations in the environmental space. I'll be sharing some of my experiences here with URTH Guy and The Daily Green, as well as in the larger environmental and digital space.
The laid back, salon-style event will take place at the lovely, comfortable Meet at the Apartment space in downtown New York City, at 101 Crosby Street. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door (ticketing info). Event founder Virginia Chu describes it:
"Green Is: started with the simple idea that sustainability can be accessible to all. But it has to be economically feasible to provide a win-win situation for both consumers and businesses alike. Green Is: Digital hopes to facilitate that concept by showcasing experts in the green digital space who will share strategies, tactics and case studies to address the challenges of staying green and profitable. Whether it is business or personal, you will walk away with a better understanding on how certain business best practices can affect your sustainable bottom line.
"We love for you to join us for the whole day or even part of the day. The idea is to get people to learn, network and perhaps even collaborate after. Our salon style event is an informal but professional opportunity to hear speakers who will speak on topics such as building social media communities, trends and successful digital marketing strategies for your business, greening your technology, and the benefits of going paperless."
Other speakers include Daniel Schutzsmith, a digital strategy consultant and professor at the School of Visual Arts; Christopher Conway, president of GreenT Digital; and Anurag Ahuja, co-founder of PageTurnPro.
I hope to see you there! Also let me know in the comments below what I should talk about!
