      Come to the <http://www.nlabwomen.com> Women, Business and Blogging Conference
      on Friday 8 June 2007 at De Montfort University to find out how blogging by
      women and for women builds networks, improves customer reach, monetizes
      creativity and infuses your business with Web 2.0 goodness!

      Business is becoming increasingly interested in social media and especially in
      blogs. In Europe over the last year several conferences have explored the
      potential of Web 2.0 networks to increase business opportunities - see
      <http://www.liftconference.com/2007/index.php> LIFT07 (Geneva) and
      <http://www.leweb3.com/leweb3/> Le Web (Paris) for just two examples. But there
      have been no European events focusing specifically on women and social media -
      until now.

      Women, Business and Blogging is organised by <http://www.narrativelab.org> NLab
      at De Montfort University, Leicester. NLab was developed in the Faculty of
      Humanities by Professor Sue Thomas to connect creative businesses with writers
      and generate pioneering partnerships. In 2006 NLab ran a series of professional
      workshops and seminars on blogs, wikis, games and new media writing. In 2007
      NLab is proud to present this first-ever European conference for and about
      women who read and write blogs.

      Who should come?
      This event is for small businesses, individuals, researchers, nonprofits,
      artistic and educational organisations interested in:
      - women bloggers
      - women in business
      - women customers
      - social media and networking
      - creative communications
      - innovation and cooperation
      - customer relationships
      - opportunities of Web 2.0 and the Long Tail
      - usability

      And, just to be clear, men are definitely invited. All the speakers are women,
      and we'll be talking about women users, readers and bloggers. But everyone is
      welcome to attend the conference and participate in the sessions.

      Join the conversation
      We'll be blogging right up to the day and beyond it too. Join the conversation
