The Topics:
T1: The worship team is assembled, workshops are planned...does your retreat need SM? Why?
T2: How do you know what will engage your audience? Can you get to know them via SM before the event? 
T3: Do your social media strategies change for events as opposed to your usual #ChSocM? 
T4: Are certain SM platforms better for different stages of events? Before? After? During? How? 
T5: Your event is over. Is there value in more engagement? If so, how do you engage?
