Birmingham News Room was built for Europe’s Largest Local Authority Birmingham City Council and is an award winning website which has won the following awards…
The website was also shortlisted for the CIPR Awards 2010
The idea was thought and outlined by Geoffrey Coleman who is a Press Officer at the Council. I was bought in as a Web Developer/Social Media Specialist to start development works on the News Room Project.
Birmingham News Room went live in June 2009 and transformed the way Birmingham City Council used online media to deliver its news.
Whilst maintaining the infrastructure of the News Room, I was in charge of building and delivering the Council’s E-bulletin on a weekly basis and in regular meetings to think of new ways Birmingham City Council can use online social media in campaigns and generally in-house.
