Since my very first post over a year ago I rarely talk about my work on this blog, bar announcing Radiothons, but this week we have a pretty exciting event on and so I am going to share it with you.
First-ever Autumn Forum Brings Hospital and Media Representatives Together for Children’s Care
Tomorrow marks Children’s Miracle Network’s first Autumn Forum at the Edinburgh Marriott Hotel.
Attendees can look forward to interactive, information-packed sessions as Children’s Miracle Network brings together the brightest minds in fundraising, marketing and media.
“This forum is the first of its kind in the UK and Ireland,” says John Hartman, chief international officer for Children’s Miracle Network. “We wanted to create an opportunity for hospital relations teams and media partners to connect and uncover new ways to benefit sick and injured children in their community.”
The Autumn Forum line-up of speakers include the following:
Steve Bridger, Buzz Director – online consultant to the British Heart Foundation, the Labour Party, and the Church of England; coaches organisations to use social media to effect positive change
Steve Reynolds, Talent Coach – one of the most respected radio consultants in the United States; this is his only speaking engagement outside of the US over the next two years
Drayton Bird, Marketing Guru – acclaimed speaker and best-selling author of Some Rats Run Faster and Commonsense Direct Marketing; former Chair and Creative Director to O&M Direct, the world’s largest direct marketing agency network
Participants include representatives from children’s hospitals and foundations, as well as media personalities and planners across the UK and Ireland. The seminar runs from Thursday, Sept 17 until Friday, Sept 18 and thanks to Foresters for their ongoing support.
