Social Media Training

Colin Kelly is a former journalist who’s become one of the UK’s most active and respected social media trainers over the last 4 years. He was among the first mainstream media personalities to use the Twitter social network back in 2008 during his time presenting programmes on Radio Clyde. That same year he was chosen as host of Glasgow’s first ‘Twitter Festival’.

After a spell presenting news and current affairs programmes at BBC Radio Scotland, Colin built his name as a media relations trainer and consultant, with particular expertise around social media and digital.

He is a regular trainer with Media Mentor for public sector organisations and small/medium businesses, helping them whatever stage they are at with social media. Colin’s courses are interactive, use modern teaching techniques and focus on achieving business results from social media platforms, rather than technology for the sake of it. With social media now entering the mainstream and many media relations ‘crises’ having social media at their root, Colin is able to incorporate ‘digital’ elements into your Media Mentor course, or can deliver standalone social media workshops including the following areas:
