The two day course is designed to provide attendees with an understanding of the dangers they face by misusing their personal social media in a way that conflicts with professional standards, roles and responsibilities.

We use REAL case studies to show the consequences.

We also reflect the fact that disciplinary cases brought by organisations that had no policy and/or made no effort to inform staff of their expectations are generally those that fail.

The final day includes workshops aimed towards building a policy appropriate for the organisational needs using attendee knowledge. Each class is limited to no more than 9 students.
