Women, Business and Blogging Conference

Women, Business and Blogging Conference, on Friday 8 June 2007 at De Montfort University: how blogging by women and for women builds networks, improves customer reach, monetizes creativity and infuses business with Web 2.0 goodness!

Business is becoming increasingly interested in social media and especially in blogs. In Europe over the last year several conferences have explored the potential of Web 2.0 networks to increase business opportunities – LIFT (Geneva) and
Le Web (Paris) for just two examples. But there have been no European events focusing specifically on women and social media -until now.

Women, Business and Blogging is organised by NLab at De Montfort University, Leicester. NLab was developed in the Faculty of Humanities by Professor Sue Thomas to connect creative businesses with writers and generate pioneering partnerships. In 2006 NLab ran a series of professional workshops and seminars on blogs, wikis, games and new media writing. In 2007NLab is proud to present this first-ever European conference for and about women who read and write blogs.
