Think Social Coffee Chats

Think Social Coffee Chats


Social media is an amazing tool for marketing, networking, connecting with your audience and creating awareness around your brand and products. Grab a coffee (or in some cases a glass of wine or a beer), hang out with new friends and lets chat about making social media marketing simple. #ThinkSocial

Write a Book Using LinkedIn (and Gain a Huge Social Following) in under 12 Months: a Fireside Chat with Calvin Simpson

Everyone has a book in them. For some, they already have an idea. For others, it’s just waiting to be hatched. Join me for a light-hearted and in-depth Q&A with Author and smile-maven Calvin Simpson as we explore the simple system you can use to write a book, explode your following and open never before thought of doors. All in 6-12 months using LinkedIn.

Attendees will walk away completely aware of what it takes to write a book and pumped up that it is really not that hard – not to mention having met a few new friends, too.

The Collective 12|12  @ 1212 9th Avenue SE

The Collective 12|12 is a newly renovated co-working space in the heart of Inglewood.
We provide all of the companies working from our space with a desk, access to a boardroom and a breakout room for meetings, internet, a community of entrepreneurs with deep experience in a variety of fields, coffee, RedBull and Village Brewery beers. We are currently looking for full time and part time entrepreneurs that need a cost effective and scalable working space and access to the energy and community of their peers here in Calgary.

(many, many thanks to our first location – Kaffeeklatsch and second – Vine Styles.)

What’s the deal?

The goal of the #ThinkSocial Coffee Chat workshops is to train, inform and engage individuals working in small to medium firms on how to utilize social media more efficiently in a casual, friendly environment. We want you to leave with the tools you need to be more comfortable using social media.

The mini-series is a series of different workshops, or chats, held once a month, each presenting a new social media-related topic. Each Chat has no more than 12 people registered so the workshop can be more engaging and the attendees have a greater opportunity to ask questions and interact with each other and speaker.

Have a topic in mind? Send it our way to be considered for the next Coffee (or wine) Chat.

Sign up to our email list, follow us on social media and don’t miss next month’s Chat.

Your Chat will be led by David Wald (most of the time), Chief Idea Guy at Social Sesame Inc.

David Wald

David Wald started Social Sesame when he saw a need to help companies in the Calgary area “do” social media better. After four years of working with some of the coolest companies, he’s gotten to know a thing or two about social media and the tools and techniques required to make it all worth while. David’s a nice guy too, which should make asking questions easy.
