Social media has become one of the most prominent sources of information and news, making it an invaluable asset to businesses.

For organisations working with schools, this is even more crucial, as there is a wide network of educators and teachers active on the platform, forming a captive community for you to target.

This seminar, delivered by Mango PLMR, will briefly cover the basics of social media, before looking closely at higher level strategies for increasing your audience and their engagement with your channels. This seminar will suit anyone who is currently using social media within their organisation but feels they could be using it a lot more effectively. Leading the seminar will be:
