Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name is Timo Lüge and I’m the owner of “Social Media for Good”. I’m an independent communications expert who is helping humanitarian organizations and NGOs to solve their information management and communications challenges, including the effective use of social media.

If you haven’t done so yet, please have a look at my “Hire me”-page. It contains a list of recent clients and projects.

My background:
After working as a journalist for eight years, I’ve spent four years working for the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement in Geneva, Haiti and Liberia before starting my own company. Since 2012 I’m working as an independent communications consultant.

You can find a list of my clients and projects here.

Prior to that:

  • In 2011, I worked as a protection delegate for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in rural Liberia.
  • From 2007 to the end of 2010 I was the deputy manager of the media unit of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). I was also responsible for the website and all social media activities of the IFRC. Following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti I was seconded as a spokesperson to the Haiti Shelter Cluster.
  • from 1999 to 2007 I worked a journalist for a German wire service and for the online- and radio-news of a public radio- and tv-channel.
