CFN Hosts Social Media Breakfast #81

The Social Media Breakfast here in Calgary has been ongoing since November 2009. The monthly meeting of social media enthusiasts, is at a different location each month with venue sponsors providing space and speakers donating their time. Started by Scott Baird nearly 7 years ago, the event quickly grew from 20 or so participants to upwards towards 100 attendees monthly. Events continue to attract 100 + people, the steering committee has expanded to 9 members, and the brand now has 8 regular sponsors. Social media oriented guest speakers share their experience and expertise, followed by an opportunity to network with a community of like-minded individuals. SMByyc connects the local thought leaders with social media practitioners.

Hosted by the one and only Twitter Guru and Super Volunteer Donna McTaggart, today's SMBYYC venue was held right here at CFN. Following the amazing hot breakfast put out by CFN's totally awesome EthniCity Catering and a welcome from Donna and CFN CEO Anila LeeYuen, we started with an authentic conversation class as CFN's very own Irma McDonald gave the crowd on hand a great lesson in Afrikaans. This was followed by a panel discussion on social media, this month talking about separating personal from professional social media accounts and the importance of authenticity online. A big thank you to everyone for coming out and we look forward to seeing you at the next SMBYYC! For more photos of the event CLICK HERE.
