Regional Development Australia Central West (RDA Central West) is excited to partner with Rich Evans, CEO of Central West Media, to deliver a Social Media and Digital Marketing Workshop in Forbes.

RDA Central West CEO, Sam Harma said he is looking forward to bringing this workshop to Forbes next week.

“This workshop is designed to present the key information and tools local businesses need to help build their business narrative, tell their story and reach their audience,” said Mr Harma.

“Creating and delivering content has never been more accessible or competitive and Rich will discuss how you can ensure you and your business standout.

“Rich is an engaging and fantastic speaker and will focus on storytelling in the modern world and dive into the ways you can create content that engages, build your community and develop a sustainable strategy to succeed with your online marketing.

“I encourage anyone interested from Forbes, or surrounding communities, to register and I’m confident participants will walk away with new ideas and inspiration for their business and brand.”

The workshop will take place on Thursday, 13 May 2021 from 7:30am to 9:30am at Club Forbes, located on Templar Street. Tickets are $20 and include breakfast.
