Course content: In today’s world social media is a must for any business in order to reach a wider audience and have a bigger voice. If you can encourage your customers to become your advocates you’ll achieve higher growth and increased revenue. But how do you achieve this through social media? This full day workshop will show you how to leverage LinkedIn and Twitter to build an online network referring people to your venue and events.

LinkedIn: This is the most 'professional' social media platform out of the top seven most popular platforms. It serves as an online portfolio where professionals can 'link' in a proficient manor. The tone and style of LinkedIn is very different to platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

Is your profile optimised to its full potential and is your company represented correctly? This workshop is ideal to help you outrun your competitors and help you to make valuable connections.
