Why IBM and who should attend?
The IBM Marketing Matters workshops form one part of IBM’s commitment to the communities
within which they live and work. IBM is fortunate to have large numbers of highly motivated, intelligent and capable people, along with insights and knowledge and other resources that, appropriately applied, can benefit not just large commercial and government organisations able to pay for them, but schools, charities and individuals too.

The workshops are for staff, volunteers and trustees of community organisations who are looking to improve their knowledge and understanding of marketing and social media. An assigned IBM volunteer will support each attendee before and during the workshop.
