Good morning and welcome to a new week with lots of exciting developments in Social Media, though none as exciting as our news, of course! 😉
Below is a copy of the Press Release regarding #doncasterhour:
Doncaster’s 2-year-old #doncasterhour takes on a creative new direction with Ryan Oldfield of Utopia Creative
The management of the successful Twitter networking hour, #doncasterhour, which receives over half a million impressions in a typical week (Source: Keyhole.co ‘Social Monitor’) is moving into the capable hands of the Utopia Creative team from 30th September 2014.
#doncasterhour was set up by Social Media Marketing Angel’s Frederika Roberts in July 2012 and Frederika has continued running this popular weekly business networking hour for over 2 years. Due to her growing workload as a Social Media Marketing Trainer and as a Professional Speaker (‘The Happiness Speaker’) and Author, Frederika has handed over the running of #doncasterhour to Ryan Oldfield and his team at Utopia Creative, the growing Doncaster-based design and social media agency that founded and runs the very successful #UKBusinessHour on Thursday evenings.
“It has been an honour and a privilege to create #doncasterhour and see it grow over the past two and a bit years, with many local businesses relying on this networking opportunity every week. I am confident that I am leaving #doncasterhour in great hands”
says Frederika Roberts.
Ryan Oldfield is looking forward to taking the reins and has exciting plans for the future of #doncasterhour:
“I want to build on the success of this great local networking hour and extend it beyond the virtual realm offered by Twitter. The face-to-face networking event, ‘#DoncasterHourLive’, will take place every first Tuesday of the month, starting on 7th October, at the Diamond Live Lounge. The event will be free to attend and run from 6.30pm to 9pm, with a live Twitter feed from 8pm. Raffle prizes will also be available”.
#Doncasterhour is an online networking hour that runs on Twitter every Tuesday from 8pm to 9pm. For more information on the history and how to take part, go to bit.ly/doncasterhour
