Workshop: Social Media for Communicators

From tagging to tweeting and all the stops in between.
One-day workshop, Nov. 9

At this point it’s pretty clear that social media aren’t going anywhere; it’s time to learn more about them and how they are being used by organizations and corporations. This one-day workshop is aimed at experienced communicators and marketers who are looking to add social media to their toolboxes but need a little more information on how they work and what they can offer or those who are familiar with the tools and just want to further explore the ways in which businesses and groups can put them to use.

This hands-on session will:

  • Provide introduction to theories behind social media
  • Give statistics on usage in Canada
  • Show examples of organizational / corporate use of popular tools
  • Discuss risk management for communicators in the social sphere
  • Walk through elements of a social media strategy
  • Provide an opportunity to get your hands dirty and actually experiment with the tools discussed

If you’ve got a laptop or netbook computer, please bring it along, but there will be plenty to experience for those who prefer to take their notes the old fashioned way.
