Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Comms by the Coast is back and even bigger for learning, sharing and eating pastries.

A networking & information sharing event for staff and officers involved in Students' Union communications organised by Jo Walters and hosted by the University of Sussex Students' Union.

Tactically scheduled for the end of the week so you can make a weekend of it by the seaside if you'd like.

Comms by the Coast isn't a big glossy delegate pass sort of conference, it is an informal but tightly focused chunk of information and interest.

The schedule is shaped by your suggestions and information is pitched higher than generalist 'you could try using a hashtag' sort of level.

The hashtag for this event (and all students' union communications chat) is #sucomms

Thursday 3 August

10.30am refreshments for 11am start until 4.30pm

A structured day of speakers from Unions and outside our little bubble. The day includes a nice long lunch so you can get together and chat or just sit around and soak up the sunshine.


Evening social (location tbc)

Friday 4 August

10am - 12.30pm

Website user group meetings: MSL, NUS Digital

1.30pm - 4.30pm (but feel free to head home earlier if you'd like)

A fairly unstructured afternoon which will allow attendees to talk about topics they're interested in based on the unconference format.

Note that lunch isn't included as this option hasn't been a popular ticket option in the past but there are plenty of places to buy lunch on campus or you can bring your own.

The speakers & agenda are subject to change

Share your visual stuff

If you have anything visual you'd like to share with everyone at Comms by the Coast please email digital copies/photos to me - jo@joannawalters.co.uk - as it'd be great to have a slideshow running during the breaks to inspire everyone.

You can send me image files (artwork/screenshots/whatever) and I'll put together a little slideshow. If I'm very organised I'll even send it round to people afterwards to spread the magic even further.

If you have print stuff you want to bring along and hand out or show off on the day that is also marvellous too.
