7.48am 9th February 2016 - Management Topics

TGA logoThe growing influence of social media is a subject that divides opinion. Next month TGA members will get a unique insight into this world when Alex Wright of Knapton Wight gives a presentation to their spring conference.

Alex learnt his trade working for Facebook in London for several years and is now using this experience to help businesses help themselves by getting their social media presence right. He will look at the different sites that are used and talk about how businesses can communicate with each other and with their customers.

TGA Chief Executive, Tim Mudge said “When you mention social media you tend to get a very diverse reaction.  People either embrace it or reject it.  Having spoken to Alex I am sure that he will be able to put across a compelling case for everyone to look seriously at their digital marketing strategy.”

The event, hosted by Scott Pallets, is being held at The Bell Inn Hotel at Stilton near Peterborough, England.

Rooms are available at the hotel and there is an informal meal the night before. If you would like to reserve a place at the event please contact Janice Cook at the TGA office on 01507 607722 or email
