Progressive project professional: maximising opportunities that social media present
Posted by Maya Creasey on 22nd Nov 2017
In a digital age, it is almost impossible to have no online presence. Like it or not, social media is influencing the way we view ourselves, and indeed other people. In an intimate interactive breakfast event held in central Bristol on Wednesday 22 November, the Women in Project Management SIG had a social media overview.
Your digital footprint is something you can influence and take responsibility for, so we were delighted to cover the topic of ‘Your Digital Footprint - Maximising opportunities across social media present’. The topic of this breakfast event focused around Social Media and how we can all use it to its fullest potential!
The breakfast session covered:
- First an overview of the social media landscape; how companies and individuals are using social media; what are the benefits for us; and what are the options (i.e. Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, Instagram etc.)
- The second session provided a spotlight on LinkedIn; why we should use LinkedIn and how we can get the most out of it. The session also looked at what’s good and what’s not and provide examples of good and bad practice.
Lis Anderson and Sarah Woodhouse are both Directors at Ambitious, an award-winning Bristol based PR communications agency. They each have expertise in helping businesses maximise the opportunities that social media present, managing regional to international clients. The team run Social Media Week Bristol, so it is fair to say we will be in safe hands.
The sectors we are strong in include technology and innovation, creative industries, property and construction, education, high value design and engineering, tourism and hospitality and professional services - including financial services, law, recruitment and management consultancy.
