Each of our speakers will be teaching you a different aspect of their social media platform and will then take questions from you.
This way you can be provided with the information you need the most to increase your knowledge and skill set for your business or personal social media accounts.
You will also be able to tell us about your knowledge on each platform beforehand so we can make sure you can be placed with attendees with the same skill level.
