It is always a great pleasure and honour to be asked to do a presentation on social media. The opportunity to respond to social media sceptics or to help a social media enthusiast with those one or two questions that have been bugging them, is most rewarding.
Over the years I have presented to very diverse groups of people. Very corporate groups such as Old Mutual and Ithala Bank to networking groups such as Durban Silver Lining, Exas and Inspiring Women Network. It has been my pleasure to present to many organisations such as Tourism Enterprise Partnership; The Professional Speakers Association of South Africa (PSASA); Business & Arts South Africa (BASA); Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism Association; and the Printing, Publishing and Packaging Federations of South Africa.
This week I did a presentation to the The Public Relations Institute of South Africa (PRISA.) Prior to starting Outsourced Communications I was an active member PRISA and sat on the KZN committee. Having given talks to students at tertiary institutes before, I was thrilled to see numerous students in the audience. The youth of today are very switched on to social media and online networking but need to be reminded that what they post and share today, will one day be seen and reviewed by their future employers.
My thanks to PRISA for inviting me to talk to their members and students and for the lovely flowers that I received.
