Introducing myself as your new Communications Manager

Some of you might recognize my avatar!

Two and a half years have past since I was facilitating the telecentre-europe community from Fundación Esplai and here I am again: still in Barcelona, and very excited about my new part-time job as the Communications Manager of Telecentre-Europe AISBL!


What can you expect from me?

- facilitation on the publishing and presenting of content that could be of great interest to you and the community

- help in making the online communication around this community as effective and useful as possible

- a lot of "personalized" guidance on the use of all the Social Media involved: our ning site (everybody involved should be a member), our Facebook page (don't tell me you haven't "liked" the page yet!), our Twitter account (just click on "follow"), our Youtube channel, ... and Ian even started a group at LinkedIn.

- a lot more that I haven't yet figured out


What's first?

- you will soon receive a brand new Newsletter made by Freddy, the icon of one of web 2.0's best email marketing program: MailChimp (check some reviews: 1, 2, 3,...)

- we will change the server and - who knows - even the Content Management System of, just to make you even more proud about being part of its community.


What else?

Tell me what YOU think would be useful to you. This is your chance! Right here under her blogpost, tell your community manager what she should manage on this community!

Hi Rodrigo! I'm confident we soon will have an opportunity to meet. By the way - I followed your tweets during the meeting and they surely have contributed in writing this resume! Thanks for that!

Hi Lize.

Welcome to your new professional challenge. Last friday, in the Experts meeting about the future of Telecentres in Barcelona, we haven't had the chance to talk... I hope to meet you again soon.

Best regards,

Hi again Lize, welcome back!

Thanks to all of you for your congratulations and very valuable feedback!

Stéphanie: I fully agree on the "platormitis" of  too much "web 2.0-ism" - I will INMEDIATELY research the possibilities of Facebook & Twitter integration into ning, so members can use the same logins on different platforms

Richard (& Stéphanie): In the early days we had no resource centre (now we seem to have a moodle), so the forum feature of this ningsite was "hacked" for this reason. Now that I read all this "eager" to discuss items online, you can bet I will give you the forum back!

Gabi: Social Media is so HOT today you simply will get swallowed by it. Just like email was a decade ago;)

Pawel: two years and a half is a long time for fast moving technology but not enough to change personalities - here I am: still the same!

hugs to all of you and hoping to meet all of you in person soon!

They say that "you can't step to the same river twice" and I'm sure that it will be very much different this time... All the best for you, fingers crossed!! xoxo

Thanks a lot for the post Lize. It is sure good to have you back and working together. I remember the time when we first worked together and you encouraged me (against my constant complaining) to try new social media stuff out. I am still email dependent, but looking forward to more encouragement to properly jump into the web 2.0 wave. Good luck with all the work! There sure is loads to do!

Lize, welcome back!!!

Lize, this is the most exciting and demanding time of change, indeed a paradigm shift since advent of Digital Access Europe, in which to takeover your Communications role for Telecentre-Europe; with the nature and importance of the role of Telecentres set to escalate, into that of a Community leadership role - both within and between Communities everywhere. In this regard, I really like the 'Online and Open' idea contributed by Stephanie below, perhaps even extended from 'Partnership' to many kinds of 'Collaboration'. Richard
