Introducing Nehmi Klaassen
Nehmi Klaassen. “I am a media and communications professional with a passion for harnessing the power of social media to build networks. Having worked for a congressional office, IBM and a large civil society organization; I have come to value and understand how both the private and public sector work. Through the creation of cross industry partnerships and collaborations, organizations within the third sector can engage new audiences, raise awareness and inspire action in the most unlikely of places. As a “Third Culture Kid”, I grew up in over 5 different countries and learned that communication is key. Given the dynamic digital era we live in, it is even more pertinent that we know how to communicate, listen and engage in positive, constructive ways. It is through an event like Be Good Be Social, that we invite people to share and learn about how we can use social media tools to better our future.”
Be Good Be Social is an event that centers around using social media for social good, specifically for the third sector. Originating in the UK, the event is now moving to Amsterdam, where the full day will bring together third sector professionals, digital advocates, open data experts, social entrepreneurs and even social media newbies. Nehmi Klaassen: “As an enthusiast of the digital platform myself, I was very excited to be asked to bring Be Good Be Social to Amsterdam. Hosted at Knowmads Amsterdam, a school for young entrepreneurs, Be Good Be Social Amsterdam will become a platform for creative ideas and collaboration, inviting everyone who attends to contribute, learn and connect.”
