Building Community: Online and in the Real World

One of the greatest benefits of social media is its ability to create or enhance communities. Our panelists are each involved in building communities through social media that also make an impact upon Waterloo Region. In some cases, the community exists in the real world first and they have used social media to enhance it and strengthen the connections.

Learn how they do it, lessons they have learned along the way and how their personal use of social media to build community influences what they do professionally.

Social Media Breakfast: Waterloo Region

We are the Social Media Breakfast for Waterloo Region in Ontario. We mainly serve Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and the surrounding townships but no matter where you live if you can make it to one of our sessions, we'd love to see you.

We are committed to presenting sessions that can benefit everyone from those testing the social media water to those who are fully immersed. Each session offers information that is valuable for people and organizations using social media while offering plenty of chances to share tips, tricks and expertise with others. We have a variety of formats from speakers to panels to small group discussions. Each event also offers opportunities for networking.

By its very nature nobody knows everything that there is to know about social media due to the sheer vastness of what is out there and its ever-changing nature, so in short, everyone has something to learn and something to share.
