SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN–Social Media Breakfast Saskatoon (SMByxe) is pleased to announce the July 2017 Topic:
The Dos and Don’ts of Social Media for Business
So… you have a LinkedIn profile. Now what? Social media can be a great way to leverage your network and get better business opportunities, but one wrong step can undo it all. There are many great platforms for B2B businesses and job seekers, but most people aren’t using them to their full potential. This topic will serve as an intro to professional networking and explain how to use social media to get better results.
Joining us for this special summer event are Saskatoon social media business leaders, Sara Wheelwright and Katrina German. Each have taken strategic action with their business social media channels and have stories of personal bests and best-to-avoids in the online networking ecosystem. Sara and Katrina will both get 20 minutes to give attendees their actionable dos and don’ts of social media for business, followed by a Q&A period.
In keeping with the topic, SMByxe founder Amy Rederburg will also be introducing Social Media Breakfast Saskatoon’s Code of Conduct. All attendees are invited to sign the Code of Conduct and share with their own networks using the hashtag #SMByxeCode.
A light breakfast will be available to attendees courtesy of our generous sponsor, PickNic’s Catering.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP at Eventbrite.
If you’re not able to attend, follow and join in on the discussion on Twitter @SMByxe via #SMByxe4.
