Mohawk Media

The Cloud-based Business Toolkit

Learn how to improve communication, collaboration and increase productivity
with a cloud-based business toolkit. Take a guided tour of free online tools
with Helen Baxter from Mohawk Media in this one-day professional development

Using a combination of presentations, conversations and personal planning
you will learn how to automate, delegate and manage your business more
efficiently. With tips on how to manage projects, clients and remote teams,
save money on hardware, software, and lower the risk of losing vital data.

This workshop is designed for small to medium sized organisations wanting
simple online solutions to common business problems. Small groups mean more
time to apply learning to your own organisation with personal action plans
to take away. Online resources with links, and podcasts will be provided
after the event. Participants will also be invited to join the Mohawk Media
Network on LinkedIn for ongoing support and advice.

“Helen Baxter (UK/NZ) from Mohawk Media, presented online toolkit workshops
for creative practitioners as part of the PIYN project– with a focus on
income generation, newly developed marketplaces, and developing an effective
online presence.

The workshops have been very enthusiastically received from our network of
creative practitioners, with some commenting this had been the most in depth
and detailed instruction in online tools they had ever attended. Of special
note was both Helen’s personable teaching style and the fantastic online
Mindmaps produced to guide attendees through the tools available.”
Gareth Farry - Arts Manager, The British Council, New Zealand
