Social Media Workshops and Training

By | Networking, Social Media, Training, Workshops | No Comments

Wow. March has been a busy month here at Rich Graphics – not just with branding and design work – but an with abundance of workshops, seminars, presentations and training sessions in Social Media as well.

At the beginning of the month, I hit the road with the NSAR (Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS®) as their keynote speaker as they did their annual meeting in each region of the province. My role was to present my ‘Using, Branding and Integrating Social Media for REALTORS®’ presentation to each.

The presentations were roughly an hour long, and were delivered to six regions in five days. I presented in Sydney, Antigonish, Truro, Halifax, Bridgewater and Yarmouth. Halifax was by-far the most intimidating venue, with over 220 in attendance, and people parking on the street of the hotel due to lack of room in the lot.

The presentations were very well received, with guests taking notes and asking plenty of questions. A few have even contacted me since, for private training, to attend a more in-depth workshop, and even to begin planning and management of their social media strategies.

The middle of the month marked my ‘Hands-On Social Media Training Workshop‘ where I had nine in attendance. The workshop consisted of three-hours of hands-on training, with attendees logged into their facebook, LinkedIn and twitter accounts, learning to set up and use them properly. I also touch on a number of management tools, websites and apps to leverage these tools and take their Social Media to the next level.

And rounding out the month, yesterday I presented ‘Using, Branding and Integrating Social Media for Business’ at the Bconnected Trade Show that took place at Taboo in Halifax.

When I started this business three years ago, I had no idea I would become a sought-after trainer. In fact, I wasn’t all that comfortable speaking in public. It always amazes me to see the direction my business takes. It’s an ever-evolving entity!

So, if you’re looking to learn more about Social Media – please contact me today. I have been ‘in the trenches’ for the past three years, and am always happy to share my knowledge. In fact, keep an eye on the Hands-On website for upcoming training dates and be sure to book early. They tend to fill up quickly.

Till next time, keep on tweeting!
