Spotlight Event: How to use social media for community development outcomes that are big, bold and passionate!

Please join us for an afternoon with special guest Meg Coffey, Managing Director, of Coffey and Tea. As Western Australia’s most sought-after social media educator Meg will explore how you can take advantage of powerful social media tools to boost community development outcomes.
