A New Way of Learning

Every business owner knows the value of continually learning to keep ahead of the pack and remain competitive but few have the time to invest in themselves on an ongoing basis. It’s like exercising; we all know the more we exercise the fitter we’d be and therefore be healthier, but there never seems to be enough time.

When it comes to digital technology training it never seems to end, there is always something new to learn and it’s always changing.

One of the biggest gripes I hear about training, especially technology training, is that not only does it take up a huge chunk of time but you them have to go back to the office and spend more time implementing what you’ve just learnt. Or when you start putting it into practice you have forgotten the finer details and have to spend more time checking your notes and the workbook to see what to do next.

What if there was a better way?

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

~ Benjamin Franklin

What if you could…

  • Do, rather than just be told?
  • Be guided as you complete a task for the first time?
  • Only focus on what’s relevant to you and your business?
  • Create usable material during the training?
  • Invest in growing your business and your skills at the same time?

I’m passionate about sharing knowledge especially when it helps someone accomplish what they set out to do. I have coached many small business owners on how to use social media and I’ve found the best way to learn is to actually do it.

So I’ve developed a series of practical workshops designed to focus on one part of the training at a time. During these 90 minute workshops, attendees will work on their own social media profile while I guide them through the steps. Each workshop will have a specific outcome or task that we will be creating together. You can choose which workshop is relevant to you and your business or attend them all for comprehensive training on all aspects of social media for small business

Here are some of the modules we’ll be covering and what you will create during the workshop
