Public sector social media training in Glasgow

Public sector social media training in Glasgow

This Thursday I’m up in Scotland running a social media training course on behalf of Public Sector Forums.
The workshop will:

  • Provide an overview of social media in the UK today
  • Explore the different social media tools and how they can be used in public sector communications and engagement
  • Provide a practical introduction to how to introduce social media into the public sector communications mix
  • Discuss real examples of social media in action in the public sector – good and bad practice
  • Give delegates the knowledge and skills to start using social media in public sector communications and engagement.

Previous courses run in Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff have been well received by delegates – here’s feedback from Kam Mistry at Stroud District Council:

“This was an exceptional workshop/seminar – perfect for my needs. For a while I have wanted to get a comprehensive understanding of all the relevant social media options and how they could work for an organisation such as ours. I, like many others, simply don’t have the time to research this area properly. This seminar meant that I could get to grips with everything in one day. The agenda was well thought out and the seminar delivery by Simon Wakeman was excellent. It was also very reasonably priced compared to others I have seen! Definitely ten out of ten. A very productive day.”

This time around the workshop takes place this Thursday, 13 May at the Glasgow Thistle hotel. There are still a few places left on the course, so if you’d like to join us email Nick Hill at
Previously booked delegates please note the change of venue – this course now takes place at the Glasgow Thistle hotel, not the Mitchell Library, Glasgow.
