You know your Online Presence needs a clean if you are always saying “Here’s my handle, but I haven’t used Twitter in a while” or “Yeah, I’m on LinkedIn but I haven’t filled in much of my profile”. If that’s you (or you are just wondering where to start online), you should come to our August event.

ALIA SNGG is happy to present Jade Koekoe, an Online Presence Specialist who wants to spend an hour (or two) helping you fix that. Come along to our workshop where Jade will cover: 

  • What an Online Presence is.
  • Creating a Personal Brand and using it.
  • Benefits and pitfalls of an Online Presence.
  • What you can customise on social media so people know they have found you.

When: 14 August 2019

Time: 6.30pm 

Where: RMIT City Campus – Megaflex 3 

Building 8, Level 4, Room 13
