This week in Nairobi, social media enthusiasts will be treated to a host of conferences.
On the 6th of March, Riara University will be hosting Social Media Strategy Workshop courtesy of Institute of Customer Service (ICS). This will help you develop and validate your social media strategy as well as keep you updated on the latest trends. For more info, see here.
7th and 8th March will see bloggers over at Strathmore Business School for CMS Africa Summit 2014. The aim of this gathering will be to enable the conference attendees to get the most out of their open source content management systems. Fellow bloggers will be an important event to learn about security enhancements, backups customization and how to deal with bugs. For more info, see here.
The week will end in style at the Sarit Centre with The Digital Fair 2014 from 7th -9th March that will showcase the latest digital innovations and trends. The event is expected to draw participants from different sectors.
Meeting new people is always nerve-wrecking (except if you are sanguine in nature) since you are keen on making a great first impression. It is also important to soak in great ideas from all the speakers and fellow attendees
