After two and a half years my contracted work with Drake Music, providing social media support, has come to an end.
For the past 18 months, I have been working with Drake Music on its use of social media tools to help market what the organisation does and also to help colleagues stay connected.
I’ve just compiled a Storify of what Drake Music shared in June 2014. I really should rename the Storifies ‘A month in the life of Drake Music’ as that is what they are.
Well, we have reached the end of our organisation-wide connecting and amplifying ‘experiment’. In this post I want to share what Drake Music colleagues have shared in April and in May
We are just over half way through our sharing and amplifying experiment, which you can read about here. And you can see what we shared in January here.
In my last post I shared some details about Drake Music’s sharing and amplifying ‘experiment’ in which colleagues are aiming to share at least one thing about their work, both internally and externally, for the next couple of months.
Over the last few months, I have been working with colleagues on ‘experiments’ using social technology to help us better share our work internally and externally.
Tomorrow Drake Music is having a team get together and ahead of it we have been discussing how we can better use social media tools to stay better connected internally and also to better share our work externally.
It was a first for me and it may well have been a first for Drake Music and everyone else in the meeting. In last week’s national managers meeting we decided – I say we – I think it was Danny and Jonathan – to tweet our discussions. You should be able to see the tweets and images and links we shared here.
From short tweets, great things emerge. That’s what happened when Drake Music’s head of R&D Gawain Hewitt set up a Twitter profile for his work at the charity. Little did he know what he would achieve by posting a few tweets.
