Leeds North Social Media Surgery  

No upcoming dates

*** WE WILL RESTART OUR REGULAR SESSION IN 2017 ***

A regular social media surgery held in the Newsroom at Leeds Trinity University. Led by @LizCable, Senior Lecturer Social Media, along with a team of local experts assisted by students on our digital, media and marketing courses, this regular surgery started in October 2014.

We have a well equipped newsroom with plenty of computers available, or you can bring your own device or laptop. The idea is that you can book one-to-one appointments, or just work on your social media with lots of helpful people around.

The Social Media Surgery is open to social media experts, as well as charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises.
