Hands On Social Media Workshop: September 9 and October 7th

By upcoming

The dates for my next workshop are September 9th and October 7th (both Wednesdays) from 9am to noon. After some great feedback from the attendees of my last workshop, I have revised the format and split the workshop into two sessions with a 4 week “Action Phase” in between. This will give all attendees the chance to put their strategies in motion with my support and regroup for a follow up session to discuss everyone’s experiences and address questions. As always I am keeping my attendance to only 10 participants. See below for details.
