CropLife Canada to host social media training event
By Jennifer Paige
May 4, 2017, Guelph, Ont. – Whether you scroll through your feed on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or another social network of your choosing you’ll likely see conversations happening about food and farming.
While agriculture, and the plant science industry in particular, have a great story to tell in terms of helping farmers grow a safe, affordable and abundant food supply for Canadians and the world, this isn’t always the message that makes it onto social media.
As someone involved in the industry you have the ability to help shape some of those online conversations. Your family members, friends and colleagues see you as a trusted source of information and that gives you a great place to start.
Whether you’re a casual social media user or an avid user, join this half-day session to learn about how you can strategically use social media to constructively share positive information about the plant science industry.
The training event will take place in Guelph, Ontario on May 23 from 1 PM to 4 PM.
