Digital Communications and Social Media Conference
About the conference
Following on from our successful sold out first digital communications and social media event, we are very excited to be bringing you a second conference for those of you who missed the first round. Social Media is no longer the new media, it is THE media.
How can you transform the way you work using social media and other digital tools? What are the business benefits? And what are the potential of using platforms such as LinkedIn, twitter and facebook ? The Chartered Institute of Housing are excited to bring you the second Social Media Conference in partnership with Orbit Group and the Bridge Group, designed to transform engagement and innovation in social housing using social media and digital tools.
You will learn how social media and digital platforms can be used to influence, communicate and innovate internally and externally. How they feed into your company's business improvement, engagement and communications objectives, strengthening your brand and customer relationships.
Through the use of case studies, exercises and examples of real success stories delivered by social media experts many working in housing today, we will show you how to embrace going digital. In the breaks there will be expert advice on hand to answer all of your digital and social questions, as well as a 'information exchange bar' throughout the day for specific issues. This interactive event will offer practical advice to take back to your organisation and the opportunity to build confidence, learn and share experiences in an informal environment.
