Still not convinced about social business?

Integrating social media into the workplace is critical for businesses that want to thrive in a contemporary, connected marketplace, and organisations must expect fluency – and even mastery – of social media platforms from all employees and make it a core-part of company-wide training.

Join our ‘Social Media for FMs’ course on 17 Sep 2014 | London

Specifically aimed at facilities professionals, we explore best practice in social media and how FMs and the FM sector can use this vital communication tool to boost reputation and improve prospects. Fees are £385+VAT for BIFM members or £480+VAT non-members. We can also deliver this course in-house on your company premises as a cost effective alternative for groups of staff with similar training needs.

For a detailed programme or to book please call 020 7404 4440 or email info@bifm-training.co.uk
