If you missed the chance to attend this first time around, then book early for the repeat visit, at the end of July. Especially as there’s an early-bird rate available until the end of this month.

imageIf you're a Microsoft Partner, you are eligible to attend the course run by our Partner Development Centre for Asia Pacific. The one-day training events are being run at the end of July and early August in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The focus is on the role of social media in today's sales and marketing environment.

Here's the details:

Social Media Bootcamp for Microsoft Partners

In the Web 2.0 era, 'Customer 2.0' is informed, socially engaged and totally in control of the conversation - Social Media is fundamentally challenging the way that we market and sell.

In this 1 day  'bootcamp' your team - of up to 3 individuals from your organisation - will focus on creating a framework for a Social Media strategy to suit your unique business needs. In doing so, you will map Social Media workflows to buyer behaviour and preferences.

To help ensure the successful implementation of the resulting action plan, each team will receive individual follow up from the instructor after the session.

In this 1 day action orientated 'bootcamp' each team - of up to 3 individuals from one organisation – will:

  • Focus on creating a framework for a Social Media strategy to suit their unique business needs
  • Map Social Media workflows to their buyer behaviour and preferences
  • Receive follow up from the instructor to support strategy implementation

Cost: $950 per team of up to 3 people

Sydney – Wednesday, 20 July

Melbourne – Tuesday, 26 July

Brisbane – Wednesday, 3 August

Having attended these kind of events before (but not this specific one) I'd encourage you use it as an opportunity to get a team across your sales and marketing organisation to attend and think about how they work together to help you react to the changes and opportunities that social media gives you as a business.
