Social Media 2.0: Take your Brand to the Next Level

  • The Lynn Hall

Social media is a critical platform to grow an emerging brand, but after you set up your accounts, what's next? How do you develop a real social media strategy and execute across channels? What does it mean to 'build a lifestyle brand?

In this interactive workshop, we put two MN Cup companies in the hot seat, The Twisted Shrub, and Mississippi Mushrooms, as real life examples - using their current social media channels as our case studies. Shruti Acharya, Digital Communications Manager and Jen Smith Social Content Designer from General Mills will be our guides as they ask questions, provide feedback and share best practices.

After the event, we will have time for networking and tours of the Lynn Hall's food content filming space.

Tickets are $10 and include food and beverage from the Lynn Hall, the beautiful new space in Uptown. Get your tickets here.
