24Notion Communicates for Good

Downtown Portland’s Elliott Center got a whole lot of good vibes at Meyer Trust’s Resource Fair at the Communicating for Good event.  The gathering attracted an amalgamation of impressive non-profits from Portland, Salem, and Eugene –all built from different missions and structures, but all increasingly interested in social media, PR, marketing, video broadcasting, and more.

24Notion’s philanthropic endeavors have caught the eye of the Meyer Trust Foundation, as 24Notion was invited to compile a table presentation about what we do and how our services can help the 100+ non-profit representatives that showed up for the event.  We presented next to notable companies like Pagatim and TechSoup in a beautiful outdoor courtyard (taking a few indoor breaks to escape the heat, of course!).   With company cards, a business card raffle for free consultation services, and 24Notion stickers our booth got visits from almost every attendee!

The event included two, hour-long presentations from Amy Sample Ward of Non-Profit Technology Network on Strategic Communication and Social Media and Laura Mansfield of Pagatim on Brave Authentic Storytelling.  Below are the some take-aways from the presentation:

 

-  Social Media is not about the amount of “likes” or “tweets” you get.  Instead, it depends on what your goal is as a company.  Maybe it is not the amount of “likes” but reaching out to a certain group.

- Stay organized – write down goals, strategies, and social mediums at least every week.

- 1 in 4 people will download a podcast every week, showing we cannot overlook the power of audio sharing.

- While your brain shuts off from visual stimulation from video production, in contrast your brain is stimulated from audio production

All in all, the event had great food, fantastic people and was a great chance us to show off what we have been working hard on here at 24Notion!  Check back soon for the results of our hour-long consultation give-away from the event and coverage from OSCON at the Oregon Convention Center.

24Notion Goes Bicoastal

It was a busy week of panels, tweets, and excitement for 24Notion and CEO Ivo Lukas last week.  From the east coast to the west coast, 24Notion was making their presence known in the Sizzling Miami Tweet up in the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami and the Girls in Tech Career Expo in the foggy city of San Francisco.

In Miami, 24Notion started the week off right as a sponsor of the hottest celebration of social gathering and social media.  And it was not only Miami residents that joined in the fun – the #SizzlingMiamiTweetUp went virtual with tweets, statuses, and posts from all over the nation.  Check out the conversation here.  Keep your eyes open for some of the influential leaders that flocked to the sunny city to support the night of tweet up:

And of course, make sure to check out @24Notion’s presence at the Tweet-Up along with @MsSonicFlare.  Overall, the night was a huge success with our little social media hearts beating fast.

As if that was not enough, 24notion’s trusted leader, Ivo Lukas, took a quick jump across our grand nation and ended up in San Francisco, as a feature for the Girls in Tech Panel Discussion on Landing the Perfect Job – and Keeping it.  The panel discussion included females who have longed proved that they know what they are doing in the career world.  Lukas and Girls in Tech were joined with leaders in Microsoft, Facebook and Anita Borg Institute.

The event hosted 350 eager attendees who gained ‘how tos’ on writing a resume, social networking, and maneuvering in the technology field sector.  The event also touched based on some common interview mishaps and inspired women of all ages that their qualities and skills can land them the perfect job with a few helpful tips.

Lukas was honored to be a part of such a crucial and influential panel discussion – proud that Girls in Tech are taking the steps needed to begin to close the gender gap that reigns in STEM careers.

In the end, 24Notion’s bicoastal adventures were a huge success — receiving lots of love from both coasts.  Check back soon to see what is thrown our way next.  One thing is for sure — it does not look like we are slowing down!

We hope you all had a happy and sunny fourth with lots of food, family, and fun.
