@daveharte #wawwt really good event this morning. Great line up of speakers. All fast and pacey like an event should be. Well done!
Participants were media professionals, students and academics featuring real life accounts from the recent Egyptian revolution. The programme provided a practical exploration of how social media is being used to drive change, tell stories and provide a commentary on our lives, the speakers considered a number of recent high profile world events.
Key speakers from a range of backgrounds explained how social media influenced those events and discussion considered what lessons we can apply to our own lives.
