A SPECIAL talk will take place this Tuesday in the Hunt Museum, focused on using social media for social causes.

Run by BNest, Ireland’s first social enterprise innovator, campaigners, activists, and non-profit companies will be given the opportunity to learn how to use social media for positive social change.

The special guest speaker on the night is Craig Dwyer, the founder of 'ForaChange – Digital Strategy for Social Change'.​ He will share his experiences on the importance of an effective digital strategy to succeed in your cause, along with simple practical lessons that can help you succeed without the need for large budgets.

BNest founder Eamon Ryan  said: “When I attended Craig’s talk on digital media strategy, I was really impressed with his knowledge and positive attitude. The idea of inviting Craig to one of our monthly open events came to my head instantly and we’re delighted Craig found time in his busy schedule to come to Limerick to share his knowledge and experience in such an important matter.”

The free event takes place downstairs in the exhibition area of the Hunt Museum on Rutland Street, Limerick on Tuesday, January 15 from 6:30 pm to 8pm.For more information, please contact kasia@bnest.ie, visit www.bnest.ie, or telephone 061-332929.
