About this workshop series

Did you know that the average person bounces between seven different social networks per month?

As of January 2022, 4.62 billion people around the world use social media, with 424 million new users having come online within the last 12 months.

Over the past two years, we've also seen a shift in the way businesses and brands promote their products and services via social media. As social media popularity continues to grow, there's an increasing necessity to lear the tricks, tips and techniques businesses are using to build brands, engagement and revenue.

Whether you have experience in social media or are looking to get started for the first time, this workshop will put you on the fast track to honing your social media skills.
