On Tuesday Viadeo and Dell hosted a Public Sector Innovation Huddle as part of Social Media Week London.
We took the opportunity to have a quick chat with Simon to find out his advice for public sector organisations on making the most of social media, his thoughts on the major challenges facing the sector and what the future holds for the use of social media within the public sector.
Alexandra works as a social media, digital PR and marketing consultant for professional service firms, SMEs and public sector organisations. We asked her about her thoughts on the value of social media to the public sector, the way press offices and policy teams will have to adapt to the changes bought by social media and the biggest challenge facing government departments in their adoption of social media.
Tim is helping to promote social media use within the NHS by holding a weekly online discussion group to facilitate knowledge-sharing and resolving issues that NHS staff members are facing in using social media. We asked Tim how the NHS is already using social media, the challenges facing the service in adopting it as well as its potential value.
