Social Media Teleconference

Social Media Teleconference

Media Release

25 January 2017

Australian Women in Agriculture (AWiA) has partnered with the Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA) to co-host a specially-designed teleconference on Thursday 16 February 2017 titled ‘Social media still scary?’ for their respective members to demystify social media and learn about the exciting opportunities of being more active online.

For interested women in agriculture including women in fodder, the teleconference will address the following social media questions:

  • Are you digitally savvy?
  • Do you know the difference between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn?
  • Are you connecting with your family, community or business via social media?
  • Are you aware of digital privacy, sharing documents and data online (cloud computing)?

If you answered ‘no’ to one of the questions above, then this is the teleconference just for you and the best part, it’s free.  AWiA Company Secretary, Elizabeth Brennan, will present an interactive one-hour workshop that anyone can join via teleconference regardless of their postcode, from the comfort of their own home, office or even the roadside.

We will be emailing you a few resources once you’ve registered and a couple days beforehand, we will send you the teleconference details and a booklet that you can use to follow along during the teleconference. We understand the frustrations of slow internet so it won’t be necessary to be online during the teleconference but you are more than welcome to do so, if you prefer to learn that way.

There will also be a short amount of time to discuss topics that aren’t covered in this introduction to social media, so please bring along any curly questions you may have.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email

Teleconference date & time:  Thursday 16 February 2017 8:00pm – 9:00pm (AEDT)
