First BCSMC of 2010: 19th January

January 18, 2010

It’s been a long time coming, but the first Black Country Media Cafe of 2010 is tomorrow:

2:30pm -4:30pm Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Lock Works Bar, Light House Media Centre

Chubb Building, Wolverhampton

[On Google Maps]

As well as the usual talking and mingling, this month’s cafe will also focus on the future plans for the cafe.

From previous excursions of BCSMC around the region, and responses to The Future of the Black Country Social Media Cafe post, we have found that everyone wants something different from the cafe. Some want a return to  afternoon panels, some want evening socials; some want us to move around the region, some want us to stay in the same place.

At tomorrow’s meeting we will try to come up with a solution that will please as many people as possible. I will be proposing:

1) Odd months – Panel discussions in the same venue each month (possibly Lock Works). The panel discussions have provided the opportunity for the cafes to be more than just a networking event, with everybody learning something.

2) Even months -An evening social event moving around the region. Moving around the region has given us the opportunity to meet a host of people who wouldn’t have made it otherwise.

3) The BCSMC moves from the second week of the month, to the third (as it has this month). We have just been clashing with other events (especially Brum Bloggers) once too often.

If you want an input into the future of the Black Country Social Media Cafe, or have some ideas for future panel discussions, please come along to the Lock Works tomorrow afternoon. If you can’t make it – don’t worry- you can keep up with all the proposals and give some feedback by following the #bcsmc hashtag on Twitter.
