Includes a Live Event on 07/18/2018 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Does your social media strategy simply push out information or do you truly engage with your community? Learn how you can richen the social media engagement experience in a webinar with Thomas Bryer, Ph.D., professor in the School of Public Administration at the University of Central Florida and in the Faculty of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities at Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania).
