Social Media - sold out!

SOLD OUT!

The world of Social Media can be a daunting one. Especially when everyone is so obsessed by it these days. It's a whole new techy language and the likes of a like, tag, RT and hashtag are now common everyday phrases and apparently everyone is just expected to know what they mean.

But fear not, we have teamed up with the fabulous Claire Culley aka 'She's called Claire' one half of Super+Super to host this event to prove that social media doesn't need to be as scary as you think it is and if utilised correctly is actually the perfect tool to promote your business.

Claire started a vintage style blog in 2010 and within a year had over 1500 twitter followers, 600 Facebook fans and commissions from big Fashion labels with social media buzz being largely responsible for this. 

Focusing on the advantages of different social media outlets and top tips on the best ways to use them, this talk is the perfect opportunity to learn more about this key aspect of having an online presence.

Smaller focus groups will then be available at later dates for those who would like more one to one advice and help to create and develop their social media skills.

His unique take on brand building uses the principle of fieldwork to explore how natural systems and processes can provide the inspiration for growing future-proofed meaningful brands. 

Mark will explain why he decided to leave a dream job to follow his passion and how you can grow your brand around the things that inspire you most.
