In November 2013, Microsoft brought 80 nonprofit representatives together in Christchurch and Wellington, New Zealand, for a full day of training on the effective use of social media.

Heather Mansfield, principal writer at Nonprofit Tech for Good, conducted the training to rave reviews. "This was the best social media presentation I've attended, and I've done a few now," said Richard Parry of Stand Children's Services. Alan Royal of SeniorNet Wellington agreed, "An outstanding day. The speaker was fluent, informative and showed an awareness of New Zealand content.”

We had the chance to catch up with Dave Greenberg from Life Flight Trust and Justine Storey from Plunket to ask them what they thought of the day.
