Content skills

Social media training
• Social media is not just creating posts and competitions on the Facebook page. Many companies don’t see the outcome of social, because they set the wrong expectations from social. During this session we will explain how to use social channels wisely and when they are applicable. We will talk about cross-disciplinary nature of social media and therefore what employees should be contributing to it. How to leverage the possibilities and do not get lost in the informational clutter of the newsfeeds. We will learn to set the right goals and instruments to hit them.

Grayling is confident that any educational process requires absolute motivation from all stakeholders involved. The training will require 100% concentration. Active participation is a must. The training is rich with mock interviews and conferences, as well as other exercises
