Expressions Of Interest Requested For Social Media For Librarians Workshops In February/March 2013

I am requesting expressions of interest for a hands-on workshop about social media for librarians with DK, to be scheduled in late February and early March 2013.

The course can only run in locations where there has been enough interest to ensure that we meet our break even number of 15, which is also the maximum number of participants for the workshop.

If you reside outside the main centres and would like to see the workshop run in your area, use your professional networks to gather participant numbers and email me. We will always endeavour to bring an event to a location that meets the break even number.

Please read the workshop information below and complete the form attached here and email it back to me as soon as possible at 

Expressions of interest will close on Friday 25 January 2013


DK is a social media guru with an international reputation.  He was a very popular keynote speaker at the 2012 LIANZA conference, where he also held a short social media workshop. His popularity was such that I had a number of requests to ask him to do more workshops for LIANZA.  DK is moving away from presenting face-to-face workshops, so this will be your only chance to benefit from his experience and enthusiasm.

The workshop will be hands-on, immersive and inspirational with a focus on raising confidence/competence around using social media for the benefit of your library and your own professional development.
Limited to 15 people to ensure everyone gets the time and attention to play/learn.

Attendees will leave with:

  • a deeper understanding of social media

  • confidence to use several dynamic platforms

  • strategies for professional development using these spaces

  • ideas for colleagues and use of digital and social technologies in their libraries

  • concepts of user engagement for their services

  • smiles

Late February/early March 2013

Welcome tea/coffee at 9am for a workshop start at 9.30am, finish 4.30pm.
Catering includes a welcome tea/coffee, morning and afternoon tea and lunch.

$273.70 (LIANZA member), $391 (non-member)
PubSIG will sponsor four of their members to attend events at half the LIANZA member cost  - $136.85 (PubSIG member discounted rate).
The discounted PubSIG member rate will be given to the first four PubSIG members to register for each event.



If you are Professionally Registered, you can record this learning under BoKs 2, 3 and 4.

I believe in making people  think and / or smile.

With an educational background in communications and media, plus a professional background in local government (DK was the UK’s first and only, at that time, Corporate Youth Officer… oooh!) and has been running his own business(es) since 2004.

Social Media For Librarians Workshops In 2013 with DK

Thanks Maree for bring this workshop with DK to Librarians around NZ This is a must workshop for all Librarians using social media. You will be amazed at what you can do with Social Media and DK will amaze you with this hands on class just how simple and easy it is. I highly recommend it. I attended his masterclass at LIANZA 2012 Conference. He is highly entertaining yet his teaching style enables eveyone to learn easily. I will be be there.
