We commissioned Equinox to run a series of Social Media Worskhops with a number of fledging businesses we were working with, with mixed social media experience and ability but largely social media novices. The Equinox team did a fantastic job of assessing the varying needs of the participants, took the time to understand their businesses and objectives and subsequently made all aspects of the workshops relevant, accessible, engaging and most of all, lots of fun! We have seen a great improvement in the participants social media activity since the workshops, and have received great feedback such as ‘Thanks for the workshops, the presenters were first class and really knew their stuff’, ‘I thought I knew quite a bit about social media before the workshops, but now I realise I was only scratching the surface’ and our favourite ‘Thanks for the workshop, I am no longer scared of social media!
