The morning session 9:30am - 12:15pm is focusing on Social Media for Dispelling the myths for the 3rd sector. In the afternoon, session is to genuinely encourage greater community engagement & empowerment.

Hampshire Economic Partnership joins with Ed Gould, Creative Director of award winning marketing communications agency Carswell Gould to deliver the essential best practice guide for social media use.
The talk will bring together best practice theory and working case studies to introduce and develop delegates understanding and approaches to social media

In the current economic climate the voice of local communities can often be lost and engagement with the public sector can be a difficult task.
Yet there are many examples of best practice around the region and across Europe showing how the local communities have either taken their own initiative or developed new ideas in making their voice heard.

There will be two case studies: Peter Reed-Forrester, MD of CommunityUK.net who will highlight how his organisation will use their unique "Community Networking" initiative to drive sustainable regeneration in communities across the UK. 

Katleen Vermeiren, MANUS Project who will highlight how local people have worked with local government in Belgium to create job opportunities in true partnership.
