THE CLONMEL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE are the first professional association in Ireland to conduct a live Google Hangout on Air. It happened this morning in a social media #protip workshop and the first one is visible below the break.
Before the Hangouts, I heard local businessmen explain how they increase footfall through clever tactics online as Brian Cleary, Pat Quirke and Fergal O'Keeffe explained how social media has changed some of focus for time management in their lines of work. Orla Nolan presented an overview of Connect Ireland to more than 50 people attending the event, getting some straightforward suggestions from the floor along with attracting a posse of influencers who should echo the "jobs for Ireland" message.
Elana Kehoe shared emotive memories with the group, recalling the difficulty in unlocking her deceased husband accounts on his passing last year. Paul O'Mahoney gave a miniature master class in Audioboo and won the award for "most entertaining" presentation of the day. He won an iPad charger for his efforts, to be collected at 3D Camp this Saturday on the campus of the University of Limerick.
