28th September | 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Join us for our charity drinks and networking event, where you’ll be guaranteed an interesting, fun and sociable evening!
In the last decade, social media has exploded into our daily lives and fundamentally changed how we communicate with each other. It has become a marketing tool that no organisation can ignore.
New channels are emerging, old ones are innovating and creating new opportunities and billions of people worldwide are communicating 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It’s not surprising that for many developing a strategic approach to social media marketing can be overwhelming.
In this session, Ruth will share the process of how to create a social media strategy for your organisation that will help you use your time and resources efficiently.
