MidAtlantic Women in Agriculture Webinar: Thought Leadership and Branding on Social Media

12:00 pm EDT

5/22/19: Thought Leadership and Branding on Social Media

Success on Social Media is more than selling a product or service. For the agriculture sector, success is measured by engaged conversations, reaching out beyond our comfort zone and cultivating your personal and professional brand into a trusted Thought Leader. There's an abundance of conversations about agriculture on social media and not all of them are positive. Be empowered to enter the conversation and make a difference.
