Really Useful Day: Social media for councils | Macclesfield

20 Nov 2014 @ 10:15 am - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

  • Do you work for a local authority?
  • Are you interested in learning more about how social media can help get your messages across?

Local Direct is running a Really Useful Day on social media in Macclesfield that could help you. It’s free, with lunch and refreshments provided.

As with all Really Useful Days, the event will be practical and hands-on, with the emphasis on enabling local authorities to network, share knowledge and develop new skills.

You’ll have the chance to hear from local authorities who’ve been doing interesting things with social media. We’ll also be working on scenarios to develop your thinking: one on emergency flooding, and one on consultations and dealing with abuse on your social media platforms.
