Roundup of the 3rd Social Success MicUp

Madlen Nicolaus

Posted by Madlen Nicolaus


On Thursday 25th April we hosted the third edition of our SocialSuccess Mic-Up, a social media meet-up with a twist. The theme for the evening was “The best thing that ever happened to you because of social media”. We were looking for stories of adventures, re-connection, personal projects and dreams – all made possible thanks to the power of Social Media. Attendees could tweet their topic ideas in advance and we picked five to take to the stage for their five minutes of fame, open-mic style!

If you couldn’t make the event or would like to watch some of the talks again, we have posted each of the chosen speakers talks including the opening speech by Caleb Storkey below. If you would like to join us for the next MicUp in London in September, follow the hashtags #Socialsuccess #MicUp or sign up to our Social Success newsletter.
