Benefits to you and your organisation
Delegates will gain a practical understanding of how social media can be deployed to radically change the way organisations communicate with their customers, prospects, suppliers and employees. They will be introduced to the role of different social media platforms and will receive practical tips and ideas on how to introduce social media programmes into their own organisations.
A good balance of sliderocket slides, practical exercises, group discussions and handouts. The day is very 'hands on' and delegates are required to bring a laptop or iPad / tablet with wifi capabilities. You will be working on your own business, and therefore there will be a networking opportunity to connect with others on the workshop.
