Social Media & Digital Strategy - How Social Media can work for you

Social media is forever changing and over the years has become the most reactive and inclusive way of communicating, sharing and doing business. 

Each day, more people are engaging with social media and discovering how exciting, energetic, mobile and inclusive this area of digital communication can be, without being overly complex and time consuming.

This interactive session will be delivered by Rene Looper, founder of Tuminds Social Media, who has been delivering social media training and consultancy for over 12 years to a variety of organisations, SME’s and multinationals. 

Rene will demonstrate how to make the best use of the different social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest, and how you can reach new customers and raise awareness of your business. 

Using the right tools, Rene will also show you how you can manage your social media activity in an efficient way without spending too much time on it.

When used successfully, social media can be an effective, and relatively low-cost, way of finding new customers, increasing brand awareness and keeping in touch with your existing customers. Take your marketing from ‘word of mouth’ to ‘word of mouse’.

This free quarterly breakfast forum is exclusively open to SFHA Commercial and Supporting Associates only.  Spaces are limited and are limited to one place per organisation and will be on a first come first served basis.


Taking place at the SFHA Office in Glasgow on 3rd of July 2018, the forum will begin with refreshments at 9:00am and will conclude at around 10.30am.
