Children in Hospital Ireland: Social Media Training for Children's Illness Organisations

Social Media Training for Children's Illness Organisations

Wednesday 10th March from 9:00-12:30 


This online workshop will give participants information, tools and techniques to use social media to their advantage.

Firstly, it will help participants decide which social media sites are of the most use to them. It will then offer practical tips and advice to participants on how they can most effectively use these social media accounts, for example to grow their brand, aid in fundraising and further their lobbying.

Who should attend

All individuals/organisations involved in supporting sick children and/or their families are welcome to attend.


We are delighted to announce that Gert Ackermann will be facilitating this training.

As Communications Manager for The Wheel, Gert is responsible for The Wheel's communications strategy, media relations and brand positioning. He is also involved in designing communications strategies for a range of programmes and services, and delivers specialised training in Communications & Marketing.

Gert studied Political Science and Journalism before cutting his teeth in the worlds of journalism, publishing, publicity and digital marketing.

The training is free to join. A Zoom link will be sent to participants who register on Eventbrite.
