Attendees (max): 

We're very excited to be working with social media guru DK (that’s right, just a D and a K) to bring you Social Media Masterclasses!

DK is a popular speaker, advisor and producer who has worked with brands and organisations like the Gates Foundation, Unicef, BBC, Hasbro and Te Papa. He is also the organiser of TEDx Wellington. You can find out more about DK here:  

There are two workshop options that will be running in late February/early March in various locations around the country. 

These courses are for intermediate to advanced users of social media. If you're a beginner, try our Getting to Grips with Social Media online course. 

Please note we need to break even to be able to run these courses and we reserve the right to cancel in the unlikely event that we do not meet minimum numbers.  We will notify you by January 27, 2017 if events will not be going ahead.


Social Media Fundamentals Presentation  (maximum 40 per class)  11am to 12.15pm

Social media is a vital and powerful suite of tools when it comes to running your business. Many people are using these tools wrong and in turn are missing out on the benefits of what social media can do for their business and own professional development.

Using detailed case studies this presentation will cover different ideas behind social media strategies plus the variety of executions which challenge what many social media “ninjas” / “rockstars” currently advocate.

Attend this session to gain:

- insights into the nuances of social media and how most folks get it wrong;

- a deeper appreciation of the opportunities which lie in the many platforms and available online channels.

Member price: $50          Non-member: $75                                           


Social Media Curation Masterclass  (maximum 14 per class)  1pm to 3.30pm

Following up from his previous "Social Media Fundamentals" session, DK will segway into a hands-on practical workshop. This is a chance to learn through action.

Attendees will leave with:

- skills to both create and curate social media content;

- a new appreciation of the opportunities which lie in the many platforms and available online channels (beyond just marketing e.g. professional development, market research, collaboration etc.).

You must bring a laptop which is wifi-enabled, a huge chunk of curiosity and a hunger to learn by doing. Spanning strategy and execution through detailed case studies and overarching truths most ninjas / rockstars still don’t understand.

Member price:  $150      Non Member: $225
