Two Cleveland-based nonprofit groups — Leading Hands Through Technology and The Workmen’s Circle Educational Center – Ohio District — have joined forces to present a virtual, interactive educational conference called “Radically Rethinking Your Social Media for a Better World.” The event’s keynote speaker is CoolCleveland founder Thomas Mulready.

“In a world inundated with online communications, nonprofit organizations can benefit from a novel approach to social media in order to build capacity and public support,” says Leading Hands Through Technology founder and president Marc Majers. “For our fourth annual Better World Day event, our first virtual event, we’re excited to bring together researchers, technology experts, nonprofit leaders and fundraising professionals to learn how we can use transformative approaches to social media to improve our world.”

Mulready created CoolCleveland more than 15 years ago, and now as CoolCleveland Networks LLC leads a multimedia network utilizing blogs, podcasts, videos, e-blasts, and mobile apps to promote economic development, arts, culture and technology in Northeast Ohio under the flagship CoolCleveland. After creating the Performance Art Festival+Archives, he co-founded the Ingenuity Festival of Art and Technology, and has served as Senior Vice President of National City Bank and worked at Management Recruiters International, Richardson-Vicks, and Campbell Soup.
