Register your interest in a public group session

We understand individuals and small businesses may not have the resources to book an exclusive group or one-to-one session, so we operate a wait list system. Give us you contact details and when enough people have registered their interest we'll be in touch to organise a date. For most sessions you'll be alongside (virtually that is) no more than five other trainees.

Organise an in-house private course

This is the way most organisations choose to work with us. You get to choose the workshop, nominate who you want to sit the session, fix a time and date that suits everyone and decide whether you want online or in-person delivery. We do the rest – even down to tweaking the training to match your specific needs. All we need is a bit of information about you so click the organise button to get the ball rolling.

Price From £799 per session

One-to-one training

Just you and the trainer’s undivided attention. Some people prefer to sit our courses on their own. Click the button to tell us a bit about yourself and suggest a date.

Price From £499 per session

Coaching and mentoring

Maybe you don’t want or need a full training course but would like a little help. Or maybe you’d like a lot of help. Either way coaching and mentoring could be the answer. Tell us more and we’ll be in touch.

Price £199 for first hour, £149/hr thereafter

How can you use Facebook to help you achieve your organisational aims and objectives? Can you Tweet for profit (or however else you measure success in your business)? Does blogging actually work and if so, how should you go about it? Should I start a YouTube channel? What about pictures to Instagram? And isn't LinkedIn just a place for job seekers? If you've been grappling with these sorts of questions, then this workshop is for you.
The aim is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Wordpress and other social media platforms as a significant contributor to their overall organisational aims and objectives.


  • The social web paradox: how Facebook et al have changed nothing but everything!
  • Golden opportunity: what the social web offers in marketing, PR and communication terms.
  • Getting started: why identifying aims and objectives must happen before choosing social web tools.
  • Know thine audiences: how an understanding of your customers, clients or service users can help target your social media effort.
  • Content is king: how to create both brilliant and sustainable content and why without it you're bound to fail.
  • Three Act Play: why content has to be structured to hook attention and make the most of the way web users surf the Internet.
  • Style: why informal is better than formal.
  • Platforms: which platforms to choose and why plus how three is better than one.
  • Privacy: the crucial difference between private and public personal information and how to protect what's genuinely private.
  • Rules is rules: how to draw up an enabling social media policy that both encourages and protects staff.
  • Don't be rude: an exploration of social media etiquette.
  • Law: how to avoid breaking it!
  • Monitoring: how to monitor the social web and why it's essential if you're to get a return on your investment.
  • Tools: the tools and apps that can reduce the time and effort.
