Introduction to Social Media for Knowledge Workers and Lawyers by Helene Russell

The next ALLICE Event will be held at:

138 Edmund Street
B3 2ES

On:  16th September 2015
Between: 12.00 - 2:00pm

Social media - more than marketing

Everyone assumes that social media for enterprise is all about selling. In fact it has great potential for personal and professional development. Our next session is a practical introduction to using a variety of social media as part of a personal knowledge management system: learning, curating useful knowledge and building relationships and a personal brand as expert.

Helene Russell, author, speaker, and consultant at TheKnowledgeBusiness, will help you to develop:

•           an understanding of the variety of social media tools and social networks available to you and their context for knowledge sharing, learning and engagement

•           your personal approach to effective management and curation of information, avoiding information overload

•           strategies for using web tools in an efficient way

•           strategies to build a trusted network, strong relationships and valuable knowledge-sharing conversations and build a personal brand as expert in your field

•           tools for tracking the effectiveness of your personal social media strategy.

With only 2 hours available, this will of course be just an outline view, but you will leave with plenty of new ideas to try/people to follow and cheat-sheets for getting started.
