Managing Your Online Brand: A Vancouver Workshop
It’s time for another workshop on the topic of promoting yourself and your professional brand with the responsible use of social media tools. If you haven’t gotten on the blogging bandwagon, don’t worry. Blogging is on its way out, replaced by microblogging and social media. Or is it? The music is not in the violin, the saying goes. Instead, the music comes from the way the musician plays the instrument, either eliciting the sweet strains of a symphony or cacaphonic screeching. The same applies to the social media tools you choose and use to network, advance your career, and connect with those who consume the content you publish.
The workshop in May was a great success. A friend had asked me to run a workshop because she felt she’d gotten so busy doing her work that when she looked up, there were all these new career “things” she was supposed to have kept up with, and she could use a crash course in how to figure all the pieces out. If you’re in that same boat and want to kick-start your public presence, for for yourself, your consultancy, or small business, I’ve put together an inexpensive, 1-day workshop that you can take this month.
The workshop is limited to a maximum of 16 participants, for maximum learning and interaction.
