Breakfast Sponsor: RARE PRESENTS SOCIAL MEDIA SUMMER SCHOOL

Social media is a vast and ever-growing industry that expands in both size and influence every day... and yet, there are still so many businesses who aren't doing it well, and it's hardly surprising, because GOOD ADVICE AND DIRECTION IS HARD TO COME BY.

The Social Media Summer School takes the "give a man a fishing rod" approach to Social Media education. We will give you the tools by which to understand the Social Media landscape, understand what opportunities each platform can give you, and strategy and concepts that can evolve with the platforms.
