Cerebra hosts free social media workshop in Cape Town
Monday 13 May 2013 – Following the success of the Johannesburg social media 101 workshop, Cerebra, a strategic integrated communication agency, has decided to provide this training course in Cape Town.
Aimed at those beginning their social media journey, this course will provide Capetonians with a great opportunity to learn firsthand from social media evangelists about the platforms, tools, trends and local and international social media landscapes
The Cape Town social media 101 workshop, being held at Moyos at the V&A Waterfront on Monday the of 20 May, will teach attendees the fundamentals of social media; how to get up and running and how to use it in either a personal or professional capacity.
“The recent Johannesburg leg of the social media 101 course was met with overwhelming interest and attendance which cemented our decision to roll this training out in other cities,” says Mike Stopforth, CEO of Cerebra. “There’s more than enough hype and buzz around social media and social media marketing, but not enough input from the people who actually do the work for big brands,”
Cerebra, who deliver varied social media services for clients ranging from Vodacom, Toyota, Lexus and Nedbank through to the JSE, Amadeus and GIBS, will be hosting these social media 101 sessions based on 7 years experience in this space.
The social media 101 workshop will be a two hour evening session, broken up into theory and practical portions where experienced Cerebra staff will be on hand to facilitate with questions and answers and to assist attendees getting set up on the various platforms.
“The social media landscape is continually evolving and we feel that this workshop, along with our content and community masterclass for experienced social media practitioners, allow our communities to keep up to speed with new platforms and evolving trends,” concludes Stopforth.
The workshop is free of charge, and open to anybody. To apply, or find out more, contact email@example.com or visit http://cerebra.co.za/learning
