Twitter Hashtags and Meeting Presentations

Big shout-out to Doug for nailing the details on how to use Twitter and other social media before, during and after a speaker makes a presentation at a meeting.

Twitter can reflect true value for any meeting, event, or education class as long as the meeting planner understands first what a hashtag represents, and second how to use it effectively.

This post has a very clear, step-by-step, guide explaining how meeting organizers can use a hashtag to spread the word about their upcoming conference and boost registration.

Doug also lists the many creative ways organizers can add value during and after the event. He suggests everything from using Twitter to alert people about program changes to posting links to attendees blogs and re-tweeting messages of interest.

Hopefully Doug’s post, and the guidance in Cliff Atkinson’s great book The Backchannel, will encourage more meeting planners, and professional speakers, to embrace the many ways social media can magnify the impact of a presentation beyond the walls of the auditorium.
