Invited Speaker at University of East Anglia

The exponential growth of social media and ubiquitous use of mobile technology has changed the way we communicate both socially and for many also professionally. It is important to consider the implications and the impact of the digital footprint our online interactions leave behind. This workshop will help you to reflect on what your online presence looks like when viewed by others, consider who your audiences are and how you can develop your digital profile in a positive way.
