It is still early days for Twitter as a fundraising tool and we don't pretend to grasp it all.
But if you're looking for practical ideas and a helping hand, Howard Lake has over 14 years' experience of reporting on, thinking about, and training charities in using the Internet to fundraise.
Join us at the The Teacher Building for live demonstrations of Twitter in action. Bring your own laptop if you want and get online using the venue's wi-fi system. Laptops not required of course - just curiosity about whether Twitter can work for your organisation.
NB. Ticket prices are £75 + VAT, and £150 + VAT. The VAT will be included when you pay on Paypal.
