DESCRIPTION

 

The Digital Ready for Business Program is delighted to present, in conjunction with Digital Ready coach and Digital Dandy marketing specialist Jen Murnaghan,

“The Social Exchange Sessions.02”

Our digital coaches meet extraordinary business owners every day. We have increasingly noticed the rise of female entrepreneurs who share one common denominator - they work alone. Whether from home or a small studio, many business owners crave the opportunity to share ideas, brainstorm, problem solve and be creative together.

Enter The Social Exchange Sessions, where we'll hear from Tasmanians in business who have successfully navigated their way through the crazy jungle of digital marketing. Learn about their wins and challenges, connect with like-minded locals and turn your hand to a little creative practice!

The sessions will be facilitated by Digital Ready coach and social media specialist Jen Murnaghan from www.digitaldandy.com.au. Each session will include a special guest who you will have the opportunity to connect with.
