Alongside the strategic consultations & trainings I do with clients, workshops are definitely one big pillar of the services I offer at B!Social. During the past 2 years, I enjoyed developing & fine tuning a method and a set of signature courses that deliver practical, hands-on learning by doing, at the same time providing a great social experience, too.
Here is to the Team B!Linked at our last LinkedIn Workshop, that happened to be a special number for this special month. This was our 15th Workshop!
Check out how this group started to raise their profile and grow their business/ organisation with the help of this exponentially growing, also still very underused social media platform, and putting things into action instantly.
It's the time to #bsocialnow !
Behind the Scenes at the B!Social Workshop - Let's Get Started!
This Workshop filled up quick, and we are just about to start diving deep! Manager of the Nelson Tasman Business Trust, Sarah Holmes did an awesome job helping me set up the room and look who were the first to arrive! We enjoyed snapping some behind the scenes, who would have thought. :)
Welcome Mark & Jemma! Special shout out to both, for Mark's awesome branded pens and skills :) and to Jemma who flew in all the way from Wellington just to attend the workshop! Wow, what a dedication! Nelson is quickly becoming a destination for social media trainings as it looks like :)
Angela runs her own coaching business and she decided to join the LinkedIn workshop to learn valuable tips on how she could showcase her expertise and stand out, as well as implement tips straight away without having to spend hours researching on her own, in a fun and supportive environment.
A special shout out to Angela for dedicating her time to spend it with us and upskill while she was here on her holidays!
Bea is a fabulous facilitator and educator, the workshop was fun & interactive with huge value given to us to enable us to become motivated & active on LinkedIn.

Mark decided to join the B!Social workshop to get best practices on how to save time, connect with the right people, and create good content that will help him raise the profile of his business.
And guess what! It’s thanks to LinkedIn that we got to know each other! We already knew it works! :)
Really enjoyed this workshop - well presented. Feeling a lot more confident going forward with LinkedIn. Met some nice people, too, and created new connections.

Elisabeth is the Marketing Manager of ADAMA New Zealand, a crop protection company that helps NZ farmers and growers optimise the potential of their yields and future productivity.
I just found out that ADAMA is actually a global company operating in 100+ countries - how exciting to know that in NZ they are based in our very own Nelson!
Two businesses, two roles. One personal profile. Elisabeth’s story might resonate with some of you who are wearing multiple hats & involved in several businesses. How to manage & promote everything in one place? She decided to join us to better understand & make the most of this platform, as well as explore how it can be used for businesses, and also for herself personally.
I really enjoyed this workshop, lots of valuable insights and tips on how to build relationships and raise your profile online.

The best way I can give back is by offering my knowledge so organisations like theirs can help spread the word about how they can make an enormous difference, and how people can support them to deliver change. A special welcome to both!

So what makes a fantastic workshop? For me, the most valuable ones I attended were: inspiring, empowering, we were learning by doing, team building & connecting, growing & sharing, and I will never forget the fun moments, the play, the good vibes and the way this whole experience made me feel.
Yes, my best ones were an experience to remember. It felt special.
My aim was and is to recreate this atmosphere through my own workshops, provide value and give my full attention to the participants, and have fun along the way. I think we can say that it seems like it was not only me having enormous fun, as I love what I do, but this fantastic team, too.
Have a look at the video and we'll let you decide :)
We are now wired for success and all ready to B!Linked. :)
And yes, funnily this workshop date happened to coincide with registering B!Social on LinkedIn exactly 2 years ago. :) Looks like we all deserve a sticker after this amazing day! ☺️
