@SMCliv has been running since June 2010 on a not so monthly basis but has had some fantastic events and talks from across the Social Media spectrum. Their latest event on the 2nd August at Static Gallery and will consist of a series of talks on Open Data and Open Data projects.
Open Data has enormous economic potential, from developing new markets to creating services for local government.

Liverpool based Community Interest Company Pencil Trick Productions have created a brand new initiative in creative networking events.
These bi-monthly forums will be held across Liverpool and aim at connecting all sorts of creative people who have a "story to tell" with those people who have a means to tell them.
They are looking to to link scriptwriters with directors, bands with video producers, artists with gallerias, to name but a few. On a larger scale they also want to put local community groups and social enterprises who have something to tell the world in touch with the production companies, writers and videographers who can help them.
So if the Kin networking events aren't for you and let's face facts they aren't everyones cup of tea then this looks perfect.
