As communicators, we elevate an organization's communications strategy and program. For some of us, it's developing a robust media relations strategy. And for others, it's helping to tell our organization's story through the development of a robust online presence.
Now, more than ever, an online presence that includes a robust website and social media accounts is key to connecting with key constituencies of an organization.
But when you need to start from ground zero, where do you start? What tools do you use? Can a one-person team do it all?
As you well know, video is king! In addition to discussing strategies, we’ll go over easy-to-learn, practical skills for getting videos posted to your various social media platforms in a timely fashion.
We encourage attendees to bring the following, if possible: smartphone, laptop, and a selfie stick.
Hopefully, your smartphone already communicates directly with the laptop – whether using a cord or wireless connection. If not, we’ll go over that, as well!
Join one of Hawai‘i’s most experienced communicators, Marvin Buenconsejo, in a discussion about how to develop a multi-media communications strategy and how he developed and continues to elevate Hawai'i Energy's communications strategy.
Lunch will be a 3-course meal featuring a salad, your choice of pho, and soft serve. Once you register, you'll have the option of selecting your pho.
