MANCHESTER — Registration is open for several workshops offered next month at Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications for anyone interested in learning ways to convey their family stories, using social media for business, and leadership skills.
Every family has a story, and Fritz Wetherbee of WMUR’s New Hampshire Chronicle program and journalists John Clayton and Mike Nikitas head up a who’s who of storytellers at the annual “Telling Your Family Story” workshop on March 10 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the school. Organizers say it’s a unique opportunity to hear New Hampshire’s premiere storytellers tell how they prepare and present their tales.
The presenters focus on interviewing and listening skills, research and presentation, and how to preserve priceless photos and documents that are part of every family’s, or community’s, history.
Registration is $60, including lunch. Register at www.loebschool.org or 627-0005.
For anyone who feels left out while business colleagues or competitors Tweet their way to success, or wonders how Facebook and other social media sites could help boost their organization, the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications presents a day-long workshop and one-hour follow-up webinar to explore using social media as a tool for businesses or organizations.
“Social Media for Business: Beyond the Basics” will be held March 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Instructor Christine Halvorson of Halvorson New Media teaches how to manage time, gain fans for your business or organization and use photos and graphics wisely. The session includes an overview of cheap and easy ways to create and edit videos for your business. Participants receive worksheets and an online version of the presentation.
Registration is $50, including lunch.
Halvorson will also offer a one-hour “Advanced Facebook Techniques” webinar at a discounted rate of $15 for those who attend the March 16 workshop.
The school will also present a half-day workshop titled “Leadership: The Commitment to Make it Happen” on March 23. The session is designed for those who are beginning to take on leadership positions in their business or organization, or those who are seeking to improve their knowledge of leadership principles.
