Workshops, seminars and presentations
I offer workshops, seminars and webinars on internet search techniques, advanced Google commands, social media for research and marketing, business information and market research.
In-house workshops and seminars can be tailored to meet your
organisation's specific needs and your budget. Training events can be held on your own premises or I can arrange off-site facilities for you. Alternatively, webinars or one to one Skype calls may be more practical solutions for you.
Contact me Karen Blakeman if you would like to discuss the various options in more detail.
Listed below is a selection of the training session I am involved in over the next few months. Some of those listed are in-house events organised for specific groups, companies, or organisations; access to them is restricted to employees or members of those organisations. They are included to give an idea of the type of sessions that I am running this year.

Training offered by other organisations
You may also be interested in courses organised by UKeiG. These cover a wide range of subjects relating to electronic information and are often held outside of London. Many include practical sessions. Many of other Special Interest Groups and member networks of CILIP (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) also run events and training sessions. Further information on these can be found on the CILIP Events page.
