Is social media an intrinsic part of your marketing strategy? Do you want  to optimise your use of key social media channels to enable you better achieve your business/marketing goals in 2016?

This 1-day workshop with Social Media Expert, Krishna De, will help you attain that objective.

Who this workshop is for

This programme is for entrepreneurs who have been using social media as part of their marketing and wish to optimise their use of key social media channels to support achieving their business goals in 2016.

This programme is not relevant for newcomers to social media (this will be covered in a programme later this year).


Workshop logistics

The workshop is open to a maximum number of 20 delegates to ensure that you have time to ask questions of the tutor to help you with your specific social media marketing challenges.

Prior to attending the workshop, you will be asked to provide us with some information about your objectives for using social media so that the agenda can be customised to the attendees of the programme.

You are invited to bring your laptop, tablet or mobile device to the event should you wish to refer to your own social media platforms during the workshop.
