Thanks to all those that attended the presentation on social media that I delivered early o’clock this morning at Newcastle Business School at Northumbria University. Hosted by the Institute of Directors, the presentation was attended by over 30 people representing a range of businesses from one man bands to the heads of DFDS Seaways, Port of Tyne and Go North East. Thanks to you all for your interest.
In addition to those that attended, we tweeted the key points via #iodsocialmedia and received lots of interaction and questions. Great stuff!
The presentation covered how to plan a social media strategy and useful tools in doing so. I promised I would blog with my top tools that I use, so here they are but even better than that, please find the presentation below:
