Talk addresses the power of social media

13th September 2018, 9:07pm | By Ros Griffiths |

Wiltshire Council is hosting the next in their series of EPIC Talks, which is about how social media can be a positive force for change.

Natalie Sherman, founder of the Naturally Social communications agency, is speaking at County Hall, Trowbridge, on 25 September from 5:30pm.

The company has supported over 150 businesses with their social media strategy since it was founded in 2015.

Among her work, Natalie led a social media campaign that helped Wiltshire Air Ambulance raise £10,000 in under 72 hours.

Joanne Pitt, director of human resources and organisational development at Wiltshire Council, said: “We’ve been delighted with the feedback received from the previous EPIC Talks we’ve hosted. We are trying to cover a range of topics that inspire debate and conversation. Social media is prevalent in most of our daily lives – either directly or indirectly – so this talk from Natalie will be topical and very worthwhile.

“We’re also very excited about the other great speakers we’ve got lined up for future talks.”

Natalie Sherman, said: “I’m really passionate about how if done well, social media can motivate and inspire our communities, so I’m really excited to be sharing this message in a public sector environment”

The event is the latest in Wiltshire Council’s EPIC Talks series, which aims to stimulate debate and learning by inviting inspirational speakers to share their knowledge.
