Dialogue Consulting provides training and resources to organisations about social media through in-house workshops, one-on-one coaching, public workshops and sector conferences/events.

We run in-house training on a variety of topics, including social media basics (including strategy and policy development), content strategy development, or advanced technology training in video editing or blogging skills. Please contact us for details including pricing and availability and we can customise a workshop or training program for your staff members.

We also provide one-on-one coaching, either in person (we’re based in Melbourne, but travel frequently) or via Skype/GoToMeeting. Please contact us for more information about costs and availability of one-on-one coaching.

Dialogue Consulting also runs open workshops about social media. If you have a particular topic that you’d like to see us run a workshop on or a location you’d like to see us run training at, get in touch with us via our contact page or below.
