Event Overview

Utilising social media to develop professionally and build a network is the focus of this JCI London event. Networking, learning from others and the richness of ideas and discussions that are made possible by social media platforms can be hugely beneficial to us as professionals. Social media has the potential to provide fresh insight, learning opportunities, different perspectives and lots more besides. At this JCI London event we’ll explore how you can benefit from investing your time in connecting with other professionals as well as explain some simple strategies to get you started!

Joining us will provide the opportunity for you to:

– take a look at the different social media channels that are out there

– explore the benefits of social media for professional networking

– have time to dip your toe in the different social media channels.

This event is for professionals who have yet to grasp the benefits of social media and / or those who may have set up a Twitter or LinkedIn account and not yet made the most of it. It will be a really interactive evening with helpers on hand to guide you and get to try out new things.

The hashtag for the event is #JCILondon
