Four local wāhine talk social media 2021

Social media is more than just a platform to share your products or services. It’s a place to build relationships, make connections and be social!

A big thank you to the beautiful wāhine from Be + Humble, Wellington Live, and Layplan for sharing their stories and conversing about the ups and downs of doing business on social media. See the images and videos below of the conversations had on the night.
