I hope readers won’t mind me indulging in some shameless self-promotion.
I am chuffed to have been asked along to speak at the next meeting of the Scottish Press Club, which takes place tomorrow (Thursday 3rd May) at 7.30 pm in the Griffin in Bath Street, Glasgow. (Across the road from the King’s Theatre). Full details are here.
It is not just for journalists and PR people – anyone is welcome to attend. After all, they let me in!
Admission is also free, but it keeps the owner of the Griffin happy if you buy a drink or two.
I will be speaking about blogging, citizen journalism, the decline and fall of Western Civilisation, and possibly Rangers Football Club PLC (in administration). However I don’t guarantee to cover all of those topics in my allotted time slot!
It’s my job to lead off, so don’t be late. (That is an admonition to myself, rather than to any readers!)
Dr Carol Craig, of the Centre for Confidence and Wellbeing http://www.centreforconfidence.co.uk/ is the main speaker.
She is the Centre’s Chief Executive. She is author of The Scots’ Crisis of Confidence, Creating Confidence: A Handbook for Professionals Working with Young People and The Tears that Made the Clyde: Well-being in Glasgow. She blogs on confidence, well-being, inequality, every day life and some of the great challenges of our time.
I am very much looking forward to hearing Dr Craig speak.
For more information on the Scottish Press Club, it can be found on Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/ScotsPressClub and on Facebook http://tinyurl.com/3pn9uln.
It should be a good evening, as I am sure that at least Dr Craig will be entertaining and enlightening (unlike the other speaker.)
