Social Networking at the Tuttle Club

Read Time:1 Minute, 28 Second

Possibly one of many self-organising groups that are emerging on the back of the social networking revolution, I attended the Tuttle Club Breakfast yesterday, organised by Lloyd Davis. It was (of course) a great opportunity to meet new people, discover interesting new projects and make new friends. I’m starting to think that “Web 2.0” and “Social Media” are becoming clichés but these were the memes that ultimately connected us. To use Lloyd’s words:

Social Media and the new world of work. Many of us are either working on our own or else in loose associations or else within an organisation but in partnership with a range of independent suppliers and contractors. None of us expect our careers to be anything like those of our parents’ generation. How do we make sense of it, how do we keep our heads above water and how can getting to grips with social media help us out?

The event was run along the same lines as an Open Space, where attendees gravitated towards the topics proposed by – well – those who had a topic to propose. These included things like:

  • Building a list of interesting folk to talk to BERR (Jane O’Loughlin)
  • Combining relentless creativity with social media (Steve Lawson)
  • Turning your passion into something that makes money (Pippa Crawford & Dan McQuillan)
  • Finding new clients online (Rebecca Caroe)
  • Business podcasting (Mike O’Hara)
  • Organisation Lite (David Wilcox & Jemima Gibbons)

I believe there is much yet to come from this eclectic assembly of talent and skills – a lot of latent energy just bursting to innovate! Many of the breakfast goup have been meeting regularly every Friday morning as part of the Social Media Cafe. (also Facebook Group). So – watch that space – or better still – join in!

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
