Twitter has transformed the way we communicate in business yet many business leaders struggle to use it as an effective business tool and to successfully incorporate it into their standard work and business practices. It is a language made up of 140 character bursts, punctuated by hashtags and a vocabulary full of “@’s” and “RT’s”. Is it time for you and your business to brush up on your Twitter?
This hands-on workshop by Athena Media is for busy professionals keen to engage with Twitter and use the micro-blogging platform as a means of communications, marketing, sales, brand awareness, strategy, advocacy and information.
This express workshop will involve looking at case studies, exploring best practices, business strategies, an easy to grasp guide to twitter usage and most importantly it will outline the legal and rights based issues for businesses and professionals. The workshop will be led by skilled communicator and practitioner, Athena Media’s MD, Helen Shaw.
