Please join us to learn how SOCIAL MEDIA can help professionals grow

Why be involved? Don’t get left behind!

More and more people and businesses are developing an active social media presence. Are you still wondering about the tangible benefits? An area that comes to mind immediately, is relationships. More than a broadcast tool, social media offers a unique opportunity to network online and build your business or professional profile as well as exchange knowledge.

This aligns with what the APMP SA chapter wishes to achieve in South Africa. The bid and proposal profession is gaining recognition and growing rapidly in South Africa. This is your chance to hear how social media has helped the procurement industry and learn how it can help us in the bid/proposal industry. Don’t get left behind, make sure you’re in the loop.

"Remember that communities are networks of people; your online community should be grounded in building and sustaining a network of relationships over time."
Bill Johnston, Head of Global Community, Dell
