Social media – if you’re in business you can’t afford to ignore it.

Which is why we’ve created 3 evening workshops designed to cut through the hype and help you make the most of the social web. Come to one or two, or book your place on all three at a discount. Fantastic value – places are limited and each session includes time for networking and discussion.
3 evening events this autumn
Why bother?*

- Two thirds of the global internet population visit social networks
- Time spent on social networks is growing at 3x the overall internet rate
