TS Facilitates Social Media Workshop for the Authority
Tripepi Smith facilitated “Content x Distribution = Impact,” a highly-interactive social media workshop, for the California Joint Powers Insurance Authority on Monday, May 6.
In the working session, President Ryder Todd Smith advised on content quality, distribution methodologies and best practices for Facebook and LinkedIn. Dozens of Authority staff implemented calls to action throughout, converting their social media profiles into assets in career management and cultural development at the joint powers authority.
“Staying connected to our members through tools, like social media, is instrumental to being good listeners and educating on risk management best practices that help our members thrive,” said Chief Executive Officer for the Authority Jon Shull. “By sharing wisdom regarding social media, Tripepi Smith has empowered our staff to take ownership of their profiles and more powerfully represent themselves and the Authority through their online personas. As time with Tripepi Smith passes, the Authority gets more connected to each other, our members and our partners.”
Directors Katherine Griffiths and Mike Egan along with Graphic Designer and Photographer Kjerstin Nichter and Business Analyst Saara Lampwalla participated in the workshop by addressing staff members’ questions throughout Ryder’s presentation. Additionally, Saara facilitated a specialized introductory LinkedIn workshop for select Authority staff.
“Aside from equipping the group with tangible tips, our primary goal was to use this social media workshop as a lesson in amplifying the Authority’s efforts and messaging,” said Ryder. “With an ambition to stay connected with all 117 Authority member agencies, each staff member’s voice counts. We did our best to give them the knowledge to run with that, and ultimately, form stronger relationships with their colleagues and members.”
The Authority previously engaged Tripepi Smith to develop its 40th Anniversary Book at the start of 2019. Soon after, it brought the Orange County-based, marketing-technology-public affairs firm on for additional branding, marketing and public affairs services.
