Social Media Marketing Course, Axis Training Centre
Get in quick: there’s a few places left for this pioneering 5 day training course in social media held in Beeston which is all about getting you and your business ready for the challenge of the social media revolution.  It’s delivered by Caron Jane Lyon from PCM Creative (she’s active on Twitter as @pcmcreative), who is one of the nation’s most eminent social media engagement experts, so this quality course on our doorstep is a real treat, which had attendees flying in from Amsterdam attending last time.
