"Social Media for Project Managers"
"Deliver with WOW!"
For Sunday Seminar:
Agenda - 4 PDUs
Most failed projects
have their root cause in a "failure to communicate." Back when Internet
Web 1.0 was invented, it was primarily a one-way "bulletin board" conversation
that still had value in providing a single point of reference for communications.
But Web 2.0, based on tools that will be described in this workshop, provides
an explosive opportunity for collaboration at all levels in a project team.
Today, team members work in several time zones or even continents, and thus
web based social media tools are even more valuable.
Today 500 million people
are on Facebook, 76 million on Linked In, and Twiters are growing at an
exponential rate. Social media expert, Rory will explain why it’s important
to understand what social media will and won’t do and most importantly,
how to use social media effectively for your projects, organization, professional
and personal life. Rory will show you how to navigate through today’s popular
social media sites and how to benefit from them.
After attending this
highly interactive and educational workshop, you will be able to:
- Overcome the fear of blogs,
wikis, podcasts, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter with a focus on their practical
application as project management tools.
- Know how to grow your
personal network to generate business leads.
- Use social media for effective
communication for your team; marketing your project or product freely and
effectively; building your's and your company’s brand; and follow up effectively
with your team and your client.
- Create a 30 minute to-do
list to maximize your daily social media use.
