Workshop 2:  Advanced social media
In the current, multi-channel communications environment, strategically managing social media is a must for every organization or corporation. And that goes far beyond tactical postings and interaction with individuals or groups, even if they belong to your defined target audiences. Indeed, social media must be embedded in the organizational strategy at multiple levels, ranging from communications and marketing to HR and operations.
