Managing Through The Power Shift Of This New Information Age And Convincing Your Senior Leaders Why Now Is The Time To Get Involved

Information is power and the power over information has shifted from those who control traditional media and professional message makers and manipulators to individuals who use social media.

Social media will continue to change the roles, relationships and even the responsibilities of bureaucracies, public policy advisors and how they advise policy makers in the political process of law making in our representative democratic models. How will this power shift affect your organization? What if your senior leaders donít want to engage in using social media?

In this session, we will greater explore tools you can use to achieve social media buy-in within your organization:
  • Social media literacy skills and tools that bureaucracies will have to learn and learn quickly
  • How bureaucracies can keep up with social media to do their jobs effectively
  • How you can manage through the information shift in your organization
  • Strategies on how to approach and convince your senior leaders that now is the time to begin using social media

Practicing Social Media In The Real World: A Campaign In Action

Now that you have learned about all the social media tools and services that are at your disposal, it is finally time to put them into practice.

This workshop will guide you on how to:
  • Set up a social media campaign from start to finish
  • Pick the right social media tool for your campaign
  • Track the conversation once you've gotten started
  • Measure the ROI for your campaign
  • Mitigate potential problems that can arise
  • Prepare for a follow-up campaign
