ScORSA St Andrew’s Webinar Series, Part 3

Thursday 25th February 2021, 10am – 11.30am

Driving for Work – Getting the message home

The third part in the St Andrew’s Webinar Series focussed on communication and the launch of a social media assets and member toolkit which will help build awareness of ScORSA and the benefits of MORR.

We shared some of the latest road safety messaging from our partners and heard an interesting case study on involving an audience using new technology. 

Some audiences are harder to reach than others and we heard a brief insight into working in the gig economy during COVID-19.
