The Sessions

Social media is 90% of your job and only 1% of theirs. Help them do more with that 1%.

You are the brave and sometimes lonely person that leads social media at your institution. You are tasked with managing the main accounts and providing internal support where possible. How can you really build capacity without cloning yourself?

Once upon a time, not so long ago, my institution offered 1 monthly social media training for the internal university community. Lo and behold those attending our sessions had varied skill sets and there was an opportunity to refine the learning experience. In the past year I have revamped our approach and now feature 5 unique training sessions including easy entry points for beginners and dynamic sessions for those on the cusp of #winning.

The outcome will be creating a customized social media workout plan that will help everyone at your school get into great digital shape! This session will help you get a better variety of content, more outreach from your experts and increased collaboration.
