Are you a business, not for profit, sports team or volunteer group that uses social media, then our  Social Media Policy, Procedure and Code of Conduct Primer presentation is a must-have for your organization. In today’s world, social media has changed the way in which employers and employees interact with others both inside and outside of the workplace. Social Media has blurred the lines between one’s personal and professional life, and how one’s use of social media can either positively or negatively effect an organization’s reputation (branding), business interests and workplace environment. This blurring has also led to employers being sued, employees being disciplined, in some cases fired, all because of their social media use both on and off the job. Today’s organization need to ask themselves these questions when it comes to their social media: “Do we have a social media policy ?”, “Do we clearly outline how an employee can use our company’s brand online ?” , “Have we provided the appropriate use of social media training to our staff ?”, “If we allow employees to use their personal devices at work (BYOD), do we have policy dictating its use ?”.  This program is designed to provide organizations with an overview of best practices that you can implement to help prevent undesirable outcomes due to the use of social media in the workplace. This program will provide information needed to reduce liability and will recommend best practices specific to policy, procedure and codes of conduct, to help protect both the employer and employee. Topics covered in this presentation include:

Digital Citizenship

Our Quailty

Our program is not just about internet safety, it’s also about digital citizenship and literacy, online ethics, online critical thinking, and the challenges surrounding privacy, cyberbullying, and what we can do now to protect their digital footprint. The goal of our programs is not to instill fear or negate opportunities, rather to enlighten, empower, and enable participants to make informed online choices.



Our work in the area of internet safety and digital literacy has been recognized by various awards.

Canadian Order Of Merit

BC Medal of Good Citizenship

BC Social Innovations Youth Award


Tried and Tested

While others in our industry seek out police endorsements or advertise that they have or do work with law enforcement, we are comprised of current or past law enforcement professionals, and bring this experience and pedigree to all of our programs.


One Step Ahead

We stay current on everything we do, and we have documented evidence that our presentation positively changes internet behaviour. We are also very proud of the fact that our programs have intervened in the lives of many, especially in our grade school programs where students who were contemplating suicide or self-harm as an option because they were in crisis or being targeted by cyberbullying or sexting went wrong issues. These students heard our empathetic message, reached out to us for help, and in each and every case (often working with their school) we were able to get them the help that they needed.
