17:30 - 18:00 Networking 

There was 30 mins at the start to get settled in, find somewhere to sit, say hello to people you know and meet some other people you didn't know yet.  Drinks and nibbles were available from this point and for the rest of the evening. Everyone tweeted to say when they had arrived!


18:00 - 18:10 Introduction 

There was a short introduction to the event, alowing us to get to the interesting stuff as quickly as possible. We had to tell you important things like where the toilets and fire exits were, and we ran through how people can take part online.


If you were tweeting - either from the event, or from home, office, train, pub (or anywhere else) - it was reminded to include #NFPtweetup in every tweet, so that they were clearly associated with the event and were easy for everyone to follow.


18:10 - 18:30 Slideshow: 'Something good your organisation has achieved using Twitter' 

We ran through the slideshow of examples submitted prior to the event (shared here on Slideshare). If you sent a slide in beforehand, you had the opportunity to say something about it - in fact, anyone was free to comment on or offline.


18:30 - 19:00 Charity case studies: 'Our experiences' 

How we got started on Twitter, what we've learned along the way, what's worked and what hasn't - including opportunities to ask questions.  Case studies from Women's Resource Centre and Diabetes UK.


19:00 - 19:30 Group break-out session 

Group facilitators aimed to capture the key discussion and learning points from their groups to share at the end of the evening and so that they could be made available online for reference afterwards.
