New Media Breakfasts

We co-host the monthly Edinburgh New Media Breakfasts with our partners fatBuzz, winners of our 2013 High Growth Company of the Year Award.  The New Media Breakfasts are open to both MEMBERS and NON-MEMBERS of WeDO and are for entrepreneurs, business owners, start-ups, marketing professionals and decision-makers in the private sector as well as individuals working in the public and third sectors.  They provide up-to-date information about social media and how the adoption of a digital approach can transform your business or organisation.  The Edinburgh events take place in Tigerlily at 125 George Street in Edinburgh and repeat in Glasgow the following day.

The New Media Breakfast events are strongly focused on why to rather than how to and are designed to allow you to make more informed choices about introducing a digital culture and social media participation.  At each breakfast, there is a presentation on a specific topic followed by a question and answer session.  There is plenty of time, both before and after the presentation for networking and to find out what others are doing with social media in their businesses and organisations.

In the past the New Media Breakfast topics have included subjects such as;

  • Facebook for Business
  • Blogging
  • Social Media and the Bottom Line
  • Video for Business
  • Google Analytics and Pay-Per-Click Advertising
  • Podcasting
  • Social Media in the Workplace
  • LinkedIn and Brand You


SPEAKER: Gordon White, fatBuzz & Michael Graham, Strategic Partnership Manager, Lead Forensics

Buy tickets for May New Media Breakfast - Lead Forensics


Lead generation has become a very sophisticated exercise, especially for businesses operating with sales teams. Regardless of whether you operate in a B2B or B2C environment, or even the charity sector, lead generation should be a major marketing consideration.

The May New Media Breakfast will look at some of the ways you can increase the volume of leads you get, and how you can convert them to revenue. We will look at examples of ‘lead hooks’ and how you can use useful information to generate data. We will also explore paid platforms like Facebook Lead Generation Adverts and LinkedIn Inmail Advertising.


Imagine if you could take control of your lead generation activity and convert ready-to-buy prospects, before your competitors even get close?

Lead Forensics is the widely adopted software that reveals the identity of your ‘anonymous’ website traffic, and turns them into actionable sales leads. In real-time. So, no more guessing who it is that is visiting the website, or which pages they are looking at, Lead Forensics can provide valuable insights to your online traffic and the user journey.

Lead Forensics is ideal for organisations and companies operating with sales teams who require a steady flow of good quality leads.

Michael Graham, Strategic Partnership Manager at Lead Forensics will be explaining how the system works and the level of information and reporting they can provide.

However, acquiring the information is only half the story, taking action on these leads in a positive manner can be a challenge. Gordon White will look at ways to follow-up on the information provided by Lead Forensics using platforms like LinkedIn and Mailchimp.


The breakfast session will be presented by Michael Graham, Strategic Partnership Manager, Lead Forensics and Gordon White, Managing Director, fatBuzz. You can view Michael’s profile here and you can view Gordon’s profile here.
