39 Family Businesses from Europe

Social Media WorkshopTwo weeks ago I was in Kaunas. Christine, who manages these wonderful European projects, in this case Family Business, offered me the possibility to give a workshop about Social Media.

I was a bit unsure what to do because the project partner are coming from Turkey, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales and France and the cultures are quite different. My experience with different countries so far is that social media are used very differently in each country and people live in kind of different "time layers". The availability of high speed internet access, the penetration rate of mobile phones, even the politics in countries like Turkey were a true challenge.

Where do I put my donut?

I remembered a graphic I saw on twitter with the name "Where do I put my donut" and decided this could be a good base for the workshop.

The basic idea was to show possibilities and during the workshop (two times 90 minutes) we asked the participants too to tell about their business and we looked at several websites and social media accounts. After the workshop we visited four family businesses arounf Kaunas and it was very interesting for me to see "The Reality" (not in a bad sense) :)

After the workshop one of the turkish partner decided to create a facebook group to discuss and keep in contact. So far I havn't found that group but I hope we can use it to fill the gaps in my listings :)
