                This workshop promises to arm attendees with:


                • A better understanding of the social media landscape, how to fit into it, and use it to
                market a business or organization;
                • A basic road map and skill set for navigating the tools of the trade;
                • A burgeoning social network of like-minded professionals;
                • A flash drive loaded with additional resources - a "virtual tool kit" - to take back to
                the office and keep for personal or professional use.
"All of us on the bootcamp team have been approached by people asking for
practical advice on how to use social media. People are telling us that they're leaving
most events about this topic with more questions than answers," says Jennifer
Kane, principal of Kane Consulting. "In response, we decided to create a back-to-
basics overview where 'there are no dumb questions,' so people can explore this
new medium with confidence. We've conducted this workshop twice, and
consistently, more than 90% of attendees were pleased with the experience."


Here is what past attendees are saying about Social Media 101: A Beginner's
Bootcamp:


"I learned much more than I expected and it was a day well spent."


"This was more than worth my time and money."


"Presenters were refreshingly dynamic, energetic and engaging."


"Great location -- hip vibe that fit with new media work!"


"Very educational and a lot of fun with great attendees - I networked and made some
great relationships to boot."


"Absolutely worth it!"
