Wiltshire Council to launch #EPIC Talks


Wiltshire Council are launching #EPIC talks, an exciting new series of free public lectures. The first talk ‘The impact and influence of Social Media’, will be delivered by Dr. Charles Kriel Specialist Advisor to the DCMS (Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) Select Committee on Fake News at the House of Commons. Dr. Kriel is from the Corsham Institute, whose work focuses on education and research to promote lifelong learning in the digital age.

“It’s fantastic to see employees at Wiltshire Council working together in their own time to organise and support the delivery of  free public lectures from experts and inspirational speakers. We believe these #EPIC talks will stimulate learning, interest and conversation within our communities as well as being great fun to attend.”  – Joanne Pitt, Director – HR&OD, Wiltshire Council

The event, which aims to highlight current and future trends in social media and their impact on society and individuals, will take place on 26 March from 5.30pm to 7.00pm at County Hall, Trowbridge and is free for everyone to attend.

#EPIC talks originated from a member of Wiltshire Council’s #EPIC employee engagement group (Empowering People, Innovation and Collaboration) where employees work together to deliver innovative engagement initiatives in their own time.

Through #EPIC talks Wiltshire Council hope to stimulate debate and learning, inviting thought leaders, academics and inspirational speakers to share their knowledge on a range of topics.

These lectures will be recorded and uploaded to the Wiltshire Council YouTube channel.
