A Summer of Heatwaves + HootUps, UK Event Roundup


Our nest of owls is growing rapidly and they have been hard at work spreading the Hoot love all over the country this month for HootSuite’s London team. With the UK heatwave shining down, we tore ourselves away from the beach to spread the word on how HootSuite can help save time, allowing you to spend more time catching rays!

HootSuite Community Captain Shain Shapiro, UK Ambassador Allan Blair Beaton and our expanding team of owls have also been planning some exciting activities throughout the UK for the coming months, as well as working on new projects and partnerships.

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