Details

Our next Third Tuesday sees the return of one of our most popular speakers, Gini Dietrich. (http://twitter.com/ginidietrich) Gini will be doing the Canadian launch of her new book, Spin Sucks (http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/books/spin-sucks-communication-and-reputation/9780789748867-item.html?ikwid=spin+sucks&ikwsec=Home), at Third Tuesday.

We live in a world where content farms, Internet spiders, and fake accounts have the potential to ruin one’s experience online.

It certainly would be easy – and quite possible to even make some quick money – by sitting back and gaming the systems.

But, just like the Justice League, Gini prefers to fight evil with good.

At Gini's Third Tuesday session, you’ll learn how to communicate honestly, responsibly, openly, and authentically…and truly earn the trust of your customers, stakeholders, investors, and communities.

Gini will talk about what is wrong with:

• Whisper campaigns;

• Astroturfing;

• Media manipulation; and

• Unethical business practices.

Then she’ll provide case studies on the organizations that are doing things ethically and responsibly…and winning.

Agenda

5:30 p.m. Doors open, meet new and old friends

6:00 p.m. Presentation, followed by Q&A session

Thank you to our sponsors

Third Tuesday is supported by great sponsors - Cision Canada (http://ca.cision.com/) and Rogers Communications (http://rogers.com/) - who believe in our community and help us to bring speakers not just to Toronto but to Ottawa as well. Without the sponsors we couldn't make Third Tuesday a truly Canadian affair. So, thank you to the sponsors of the Third Tuesday 2014 season: Cision Canada and Rogers Communications.

We want students to be able to attend

Third Tuesday is a great opportunity to hear about the latest developments in social media and to network with business and thought leaders. And we don't want students to miss out on this opportunity. So, if you are a student and would like to attend, don't let the admission fee stop you. Simply present your student ID card at the time you sign into Third Tuesday and we'll refund your admission fee, courtesy of Thornley Fallis (http://thornleyfallis.ca/).
