Social Media Resources

Since joining Rotary in 2008, I have been one of the most vocal and active champions of social media.

I have:

  • given numerous talks at Rotary clubs (and they were generally VERY resistant to the topic in the early years!)
  • written a variety of articles for the Rotary Down Under magazine
  • conducted training seminars ranging from one hour to a full day around Australia and overseas, including keynotes and break out sessions at the Rotary International Institute in Bangkok (2012) and the Bangkok (2012) and Sydney (2014) Rotary International Conventions
  • been a panelist in every social media webinar put on by Rotary International (while Antoinette Tuscano was the staff member looking after social media there)
  • founded a social networks fellowship to actively provide resources for Rotarians and Rotaractors to safely and effectively use social media (though I am no longer involved with it; I have now moved many of the resources I compiled to this website so they will not be lost!)
  • served as both a member of the International Organizing Committee and Promotions Committee for the Sydney RI Convention, specifically because of my social media expertise.

That’s a lot of training! 🙂 (And time poured into practising what I preach!) I have uploaded a number of the resources I have put together on SlideShare – a selection of those are below.

I have also authored the first “SNetiquette” Guidelines for using social media in Rotary.

I have also authored a number of more in depth articles on how to use social media more effectively:
