The emphasis is on practical solutions in all areas of marketing, customer service and operational efficiency, that are relevant to the business strategy and unique needs of the small and medium business participants. This is a non profit California Community College workshop designed to inform without endorsement for any specific commercial product or service to be offered statewide.

Our ideal candidate has experience in the business use of new media internet applications and mobile technologies for marketing, customer service, collaboration and productivity, as well as first-hand knowledge as how to hire for or contract out those services. In addition to expertise in Website development strategy, social media, virtual B-2-B collaboration tools and mobile apps, the preferred candidate will also be able to train from provided curriculum and companion website. Prior adult instructional or consulting experience is a plus.

The selected candidate(s) would be retained as a contractor to teach a three hour-five day workshop throughout the state as they are scheduled to groups of ten to fifteen participants.
