Workshop 2: The Power of Social media

  • Theme: Create and implement a social media strategy and plan for your issue or brand

Laurel Papworth, Founder, World Communities

I’m going to spend an hour with people building out a social media campaign and highlighting the various elements. A bit more hands on than usual. Though not as hands on as my one day corporate social media campaign course that I’ve been running at the University of Sydney for a few years now, it should still go through the main features of campaigns in the social media space.
