With not a social media agency, expert, consultant or guru in sight...well, maybe just one or two that we've hand-picked, but they'll be worth it!



Here's who you can look forward to seeing -

Come and hear from: 

  • Chris Difford, the Co-founder of the band Squeeze

...and many, many more.

The full programme of events runs from Monday 22nd September to Friday 26th, and will be held at the brand new Crowdshed at 18 Hanway Street, W1 (details), right in the heart of central London, 2 mins. walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station.

At each morning session, from 8am-10am, we're looking at the impact of social media on a particular industry and how the different players in those industries are responding and adjusting to the "€˜social" opportunity. And in the afternoon sessions, from 4pm-6pm, we will be discussing how social media is shifting our relationship with these industries, and the effect of consumer behaviour above and beyond marketing - and what the future holds for them.

We do hope you can join us for some of these events, if not all ;-) and would love it if you could share them with your colleagues, contacts, clients, networks and communities to let them know about Social Media Week too - Please share and tweet these events using #LikeMinds and #SMWLDN

Like Minds unites innovators, thinkers and doers together through its series of thought leadership events and co-working spaces.

We were founded in August 2009 amidst the boom of Social Media, where communication was drastically changing, and knowledge was overflowing – creating both the opportunity and the necessity for us to act and turn our ideas into reality. Our mission is to create a platform where participants can join fellow like minds in order to inspire one another and make those ideas happen, all on a level that is accessible both financially and structurally.

“Like Minds is an intellectual playground where thinkers, strategists, agents provocateurs, innovators, challengers and mavericks can open up, share ideas and be inspired in a warm, welcoming and world-wide environment. If you haven’t been, go. You’ll see the future there; most likely, yours. - Robert Bean, The Robert Bean Branding Company
