Frank J. Kenny, a nationally and internationally known speaker and business coach, will share how he doubled the size of his organization in only 18 months through social networking and social media from 1 to 3 p.m. Nov. 15 at Gilroy Chamber of Commerce, 7471 Monterey St.

These workshops are not on how to use Facebook and Twitter. Rather than teach the tools, Kenny explains the psychology behind social networking. In this two-hour intensive, fun and interactive workshop, Kenny will share how social networking and social media, when used correctly, can turn strangers into friends, friends into customers and customers into advocates or salespeople.

This workshop is being provided by the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce at $20 per person. This is a members only offer. Space is limited. Details: 842-6437 or [email protected]
