Business Accelerator: Develop your soft social (media) skills for earning success

Nice to (virtually) meet you!

How to genuinely and strategically connect with others for business online.

Canadians spend almost 6 hours a day online and almost 2 hours of that is on social media. And we’re not simply there to watch funny videos or like our niece’s graduation photos. But we use it for business and networking, too. Learn how to use digital media to help craft your own online persona, find and nurture new connections, and strengthen the business connections you already have.
