Social Media Bootcamp - B2B Sales & Marketing Professionals (Syd)
Tuesday, May 24, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Sydney, New South Wales
In the Web 2.0 era, 'Customer 2.0' is informed, socially engaged and totally in control of the conversation - Social Media is fundamentally challenging the way that we market and sell.
In this 1 day action oriented 'bootcamp' your team - of up to 3 individuals from your organisation - will focus on creating a framework for a Social Media strategy to suit your unique business needs. In doing so, you will map Social Media workflows to buyer behaviour and preferences.
To help ensure the successful implementation of the resulting action plan, each team will receive individual follow up from the instructor after the session.
Presented by Bruce Rasmussen, Managing Director, Carpe Diem Consulting.

From previous participants "Thank you Bruce - demystifying Social Media is no easy task and you successfully covered all the areas most relevant to business today - right from understanding through to action. By highlighting the array of tools and resources (content!) available I left knowing exactly what I have to do and implement now with a lot more confidence. Highly recommended!"

I would highly recommend this to anybody from beginners to experienced users of Social Media."
