This workshop for business professionals and senior managers, will show through interactive exercises and 'masterclass style' demonstrations, how a range of social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, as well as tools like multi-media blogs ( with video and audio) can be used professionally to showcase business activity, create content and deliver services online, inspire and engage staff and clients, develop new networks and business leads, and access free professional development.
