Much more useful than a chocolate teapot!

I thought I’d pop some resources together to help you find your way around the social media platforms yourself.  Let me know if there is anything else that you would like me to add here and I’ll get on it right away!

Now, I wonder where my secret stash of chocolate is?  Hmmm…

The Blueprints are all delivered online via a secure member-only website. Once you’ve invested in the package you’ll be assigned your own private log-in so you can dip in and out of the training in your own time and at your own pace. The modules are available 24/7.  Both Single-user and Multiple-user licenses are available so different people within a company or organisation can all benefit from it.
