For this 'casual' Highland Social event, sponsored by OpenBrolly we are going to be visiting the lovely Cafe Artysans in Inverness for an informal morning of coffee, cupcakes (well breakfast muffins and pastries) and chat!
It will be a very laid back affair with a quick round the room intro session, a short talk from our guest speaker, David Sim from OpenBrolly, some social media discussions and lots of quality networking. It will also give you all a chance, if you haven't already been to Cafe Artysans to check this amazing local social enterprise for yourselves.
The Highland Social events are all about learning more about social media and how you can use it effectively for business whilst making some great business contacts and friends at the same time.
Our special guest speaker for this event, David Sim from OpenBrolly has got a very interesting topic he plans to cover as follows...
Sex and Social Media
We know that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. But is it true that men love Android and women love iPhone?
David Sim has researched the use of internet technologies for the last 20 years. In this all-new, light-hearted presentation he provides an exposition of how men and women approach technology and media. To make sure you get your money’s worth and to ensure the presentation is tax deductible, there’s a serious message for organisations looking to target customer groups more accurately.
How do you genuinely, although not literally, get into bed with your customers through specific use of tools and language?
From Facebook photographs to apps and devices, modern technology is dissected and analysed for its applicability to selling and engaging with men and women, taking into account differing approaches to consuming information and conversation.
David is CTO at OpenBrolly. He has spoken about the implication of information technology advancement to audiences across the UK, France, Belgium and the Baltic States and once nervously served canapés to a convicted murderer.

When & Where
The Highland Social first began back in April 2011 at Contrast in Inverness and was set up by Michelle Russell of Snow Marketing to allow businesses from across the Highlands to meet up 'socially' and share their experiences and stories of using social media for business.
Due to success of the first few events the Highland Social was turned into a bi-annual main event with mini seasonal 'Social's' and casual 'Social's' happening in between to keep everyone up to date with the latest social media news!
In 2013 we also introduced the #socialroadtrip which takes the networking events and social media workshops to the road and out across the Highlands.
Each main Highland Social event features the famous 'social' cupcakes by Cupcake Creations Inverness and go down very well!
Sponsorship opportunities are available for all events and more information can be found on the website.
The hashtag for all Highland Social events is #highlandsocial
The nominated charity for all main Highland Social events is The Archie Foundation based in Inverness.
