The Cleveland/Bradley County Women’s Council, a quarterly meeting open to all women and men interested in topics pertaining to women’s issues and/or women in business, will begin its new year on Monday, Jan. 27. The noon session will focus on social media, specifically on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as they relate to business—how they can be good, bad or downright ugly.
Eric Wilbanks, training and image architect at EricWilbanks.com, will address the topic. Wilbanks is a designer, educator, writer and branding enthusiast. He is also an Inscape Certified DiSC Trainer.
Prior to his current position, Wilbanks served as an eLearning architect for Life Care Centers of America.
“Eric is an effective speaker,” Nancy Neal, the Chamber’s vice president for communications, said. He is well qualified to discuss the good, bad and ugly of social media and how to implement it in business.”
Women’s Council sessions, which are valuable opportunities for networking and learning at low cost, are open to all women and men, said Ann Marie Brewer, chairman of the Women’s Council.
Cost for the “Social Media: The Good, Bad and Ugly” session is $15 for Chamber members and $25 for nonmembers and includes a buffet luncheon. To register, call 472-6587 by noon on Thursday, Jan. 23.
