This October HootSuite has been working with our brilliant partners and ambassadors to spread our favourite HootSuite tips and tricks. Strengthening ties with our Owls across the country, HootSuite Community Captain Shain Shapiro and Ambassador Allan Blair Beaton have been getting involved in some exciting activities across the UK and planning ahead for 2014.

Here is a peek of what we’ve been up to and events that you can get involved in:

#FestivalHootUp — Oct 15

HootSuite UK loves all types of festivals! Managing one’s social media properties as a festival organizer is one of the more challenging tasks given one must also coordinate talent, location, logistics and other matters.

That is why we teamed up with the UK Festival Awards for a one-stop shop briefing on ‘social media organization and the modern festival’ aimed at festival organisers, lovers and goers!

Headed up by Allan and Shain, along with UK Festival Awards boss James Drury, the HootSuite London team delivered an exciting few hours of social media tips and tricks. You can read more about the event here.
