Networking and navigating through the growing trend of social media is the focus for two events to be held in Red Deer next week.

Josco Cards is celebrating International Networking Week by hosting Social Media Speed Training Night on Monday and Tweet Up and Authors Speed Networking on Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Each session will cost $10 per person/couple with proceeds from each event going to the Lymphomaniacs team participating in the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.

Both sessions will run from 7 to 9 p.m. and will be hosted at ABC Restaurant on 2085 Gaetz Ave.

Social Media Speed Training Night will feature a networking session in addition to a sit down with an expert session.

Attendees are welcome to bring their laptop and book a 10-minute session with one of the social media experts covering topics such as Facebook fan pages, Twitter, Google email and blogging.

Additional topics could include marketing with Youtube, e-signatures to dress up and make emails more interactive, and working with Quick Response codes.

Tweet Up and Authors Speed Networking invites people to network while tweeting with the additional element of meeting local authors.

The session will include an opportunity to book a session with one of the local authors in attendance.

There is limited space at both sessions and pre-registration is required. Each session will include coffee and tea, and will have an interactive door prize draw.

For more information and to register for the event, contact Jo-Ann Grimwood at 403-886-5559 or by email at joscocards@gmail.com.

You can also register on Facebook by searching the name of each session.
