Yesterday, was the first Digital Festival run by the crew from Visit Somerset at the Grand Pier in Weston Super-Mare. From our point of view, a very successful day, if not just for the fact the Beast from the East didn’t raise its ugly head and spoil our fun. As members of the organisation, we get the opportunity to share our knowledge with members and non-members. Rather than harp on about video and how we make it, our chosen topic was business storytelling. We would much rather share knowledge than do a boring sales pitch.
The other presenters included, Itec talking about wifi networks in your business and how to get something back for its use, Albert Goodman, running us through accounting in the cloud and many other social media presentations. The sun shone and we got to meet some fabulous businesses and really enjoy the lunch supplied by the pier.
What made the day extra special for us was the collaboration with Weston College who leant us two media students to help film the day. The two students were a credit to both themselves and their College.e look forward to seeing all of the footage we captured and making into a promotional piece for the next event. Thank you to you both.
