Social Business 101 workshop with Dion Hinchcliffe on Thu 17th May, 2012

The social media era has arrived and organisations are looking for ways to grapple with the many implications to their business. Companies are increasingly seeing the benefit and need to approach social media activities with integrated external and internal efforts. Professionals can no longer rely on point solutions and isolated activities — no brand, department, or employee is an island in the social landscape. Today, firms can learn from the lessons of early adopters and craft a solid plan for success that includes formulating a winning strategy, applying appropriate game-time tactics, and measuring for meaningful return on investment.

This session provides a cohesive and readily approachable introduction to social business that is immediately actionable by executives, line managers, and workers.

Participants at this session will learn:

  • What social business is and why it matters
  • The key tenets to social business success
  • Strategy and tactics to apply your own situation

When: 9am-12pm, Thursday 17th May, 2012

Who should attend: This workshop will be relevant to people working in different management roles, including sales & marketing, customer service, HR and operations.

Where: Headshift Asia Pacific, East Sydney.

Cost: $275 (excl. GST) per person (includes a signed copy of the book).

Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
