Would you like to boost the effectiveness of your online communications?

This interactive workshop will provide you with the skills and knowledge to create interesting content and share it effectively within your organisational context.

This training session will start by outlining six essential questions to ask before communicating online.

You will learn how to create engaging content and work with existing and new partners to widen reach, as well as how to monitor interaction with your messages.
