Ed Goodman of Cambridge Business Lounge and Andy Bargery of Klaxon Marketing give two examples of people meeting through social media who take their relationships off line to meet face-to-face and create new opportunities for learning and business.
Listen to Ed talking about how the Twitter meeting #CambsHour gave him the idea to invite the participants to the Cambridge Business Lounge to meet and take part in a whole day of free talks in #CambsHourDay
Andy Bargery has been one of the hosts of London Bloggers MeetUp for over six years with nearly 2,000 bloggers. They meet monthly to share wine and beer and ideas and tips. Andy talks to Eric Swain about where blogging sits in content marketing.
