TESTIMONIALS


What the educators have to say :

“Preparing students for the uncertain transition from high school to career is always challenging; the Be Social. Be Smart. presentation and the succinct and pointed advice it offered spoke directly our students and the takeaways were invaluable: building and maintaining a personal brand and leveraging social media as a learning and professional tool are essential life skills.”
Brisbane Grammar School’s Deputy Headmaster of Teaching and Learning, Steve Uscinski

“We believe it is important to educate senior students on the positive use of social media… and arm them with the tools they need to positively manage their careers.”
Stuartholme School’s Andrea Reddan, Deputy Principal Student Wellbeing

“This program has helped our students prepare for the future. Learning how to package up achievement online is a great skill for young people.”
Lauriston Girl’s School’s Careers Counsellor, Sue Douglas

“Students have heard the ‘what not to do online’ message before. Be Social. Be Smart. takes a unique and fresh approach by showing students how the power of social media can be used to build a personal online ‘brand’. There were many excellent ‘take home’ messages for the students, and the presentation was pitched perfectly for high school students. It was lively and engaging and the best part was that students took what they learnt and applied it immediately. This is why I chose Be Social. Be Smart – the knowledge and skills are relevant to students now and are applicable to the present and even more so in the future. The professional world that our students are graduating into is fast-paced and ever-changing. Be Social. Be Smart. equips students with the social media skills that enable students to meet these changes with confidence.”
The Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School’s Director of e-Learning, Micah Wilkins

“Be Social. Be Smart.’s key message of why and how posting positively and controlling your social media profiles will enhance future career prospects is increasingly important. The quality and interactivity of the presentation material was excellent and we will definitely be booking the Be Social. Be Smart. program again in 2017.”
Mordialloc College’s Careers and Pathways Coordinator, Jane Jamieson

“Finally, a positive spin on social media for young people. Be Social. Be Smart. deliver an informative and dynamic presentation that gives practical tips on how to develop beneficial online profiles, especially as our students transition into the world of work.”
Loreto College’s Year 12 Coordinator,  Annie Diamond

“With recruitment becoming an increasingly online process, it is almost mandatory that we skill our students to be competitive in this market. ‘Be Social. Be Smart.’, via a very engaging presentation, does exactly that.  Our senior students gained refreshing, up-to-date information. Using a pre-prepared profile of one of our students as an example, as well as presenting relevant data and evidence, our students learnt how they can use social media right now to project themselves advantageously online.  We would definitely recommend the ‘Be Social Be Smart’ presentation for this purpose.”
Immanuel College’s Year 11 Coordinator, Linda Thornton
