November Chapter Meeting:
Harness the Power of Social Media
Our Guest Speaker: Dr. Kella Price
ASTD Las Vegas is pleased to welcome Dr. Kella Price to our November 9th chapter meeting. Please join us and other Las Vegas workplace learning professionals for this special event.
Are you getting the most out of Social Media?
Social media is embraced by all generations and is becoming imperative to keeping employees informed and engaged. When used correctly, social media can be a great research tool, a way to communicate with clients and colleagues, and share knowledge rapidly. Additionally, social media tools like Twitter, LinkedIn, bookmarking tools like Delicious, and blogging can be used by workplace learning professionals in conducting training as well. This session will provide an overview on how to get started using these tools, but also how to effectively use to communicate with clients, colleagues, and training participants. While mobile devices and smartphones like iPhones and Droids have enabled mobile learning, social media is becoming more and more a way to communicate informally to get questions answered, and find out what’s happening around you at any time…and to pass it along to colleagues, friends, and business partners. The intended audience is someone who wants to learn more about social media and is open to adapting to the latest trends in technology. Dr. Price will be discussing how to harness the power of social media to engage learning participants, to spread awareness of your brand, attract potential clients, stay on top of industry news and trends, and share knowledge with your clients and colleagues.
If you have a laptop, smart phone, or tablet, please bring it to the session to maximize on the session content.
