Despite the general awesomeness of the Like Minds event, one element leaves a rather sour taste in the mouth – The Like Minds Summit. The summit is all about bringing together the best social media case studies, a white paper will be drawn up to form “the industry standard in Social Media implementation”. All sounds great so far. The problem is you’ll need to cough up Â£1.5k to join the summit and have your case study included.
As Richard Baker points out this isn’t going to be short change to most UK charities. Richard’s blog post has sparked a healthy debate on this matter and Trey Pennington has generously agreed to assist any charity wishing to take part:
“In the unlikely event that a non-profit organization submits a case study which meets submission requirements and is selected (the submission process is free and open to all), and they cannot afford the Â£1,500, I will make a contribution towards their fee and do the fundraising to get the balance for them.”
That sounds like a challenge.
Dogs Trust, Bullying UK, Quarriers, ENABLE Scotland and the many other non-profits effectively using social media…why not take up Trey’s offer and showcase what you’ve managed to achieve?
