Feedback

The value obtained by me was a good understanding of how to best approach social media and also how much other companies understand of social media

This event highlighted the steps to take in developing a social media strategy and gave pointers to time wasting and potentially costly activities

The value for me was hearing how other people are approaching social media and learning from this

As always, the speaker was outstanding and brought lots of food for thought

Key tip for me was that not all social media suits every business. Focus and caution are very important

Follow your instincts and research thoroughly before forging ahead. Setting up social media is extremely quick and simple, servicing and sustaining it is a different matter!

Key tip - Social media and SEO need to be viewed as a single package

Taught me about retweeting interesting information rather than having to come up with original messages every time

Strategy is required before embarking on social media - don't jump in regardless or without a plan

Key tip was to hear how to add value to customer base through facebook and twitter

Scott was well organised, kept to timings, very well run event

Scott was a very good Chairperson, he really got everyone involved in the discussion and is a good ambassador of the Board

Scott gave relevant input and direction to the evening

Scott kept discussion flowing easily and encourage everyone to take part

Scott gave great insights and really knew the subject

John was very good, he was natural and keen to impart his knowledge and expertise

John had great insights and gave good information to take away and think about

John was an experienced and interesting speaker

A worthwhile event, many thanks
