Social media has changed the way people communicate – giving organisations an amazing opportunity to truly engage supporters, reach new audiences, influence key decision makers, build new partnerships and to promote their services.

Hosted by Ross McCulloch, Founder of Third Sector Lab & Be Good Be Social, our social media workshop cuts through all the hype and jargon, helping you think strategically about Twitter and Facebook, blogging, video for the web and more.
