The CIPR's industry-leading one-day social media conference returns to the offices of MSN UK, London, on Thursday 11 July 2013, with the view that social and digital media are no longer a specialist area of public relations but at the forefront of how current practice is evolving.
'Share This Live' will feature pragmatic case-study sessions and in-depth panel discussions covering topics including 'Online crisis management', 'Social commerce', 'Mobile media', 'Understanding social capital' and more. The conference will be opening with a keynote address from Tom Standage, Digital Editor of The Economist and Editor-in-Chief of Economist.com.
The conference will be led by an expert panel of speakers from top UK and international brands including The Guardian, Adobe, Microsoft and Confused.com, as well as leading international social and digital media agencies: Ketchum, 33 Digital, Ruder Finnand VCCP, amongst others.
'Share This Live' puts you, the delegate, in control of your event, allowing you to choose which sessions you want to attend, with two concurrent streams running in the morning and afternoon giving you flexibility in choosing what you want from your day's learning.
'Share This Live' has been curated (and will be led) by the authors behind the CIPR's best-selling book, 'Share This: The Social Media Handbook for PR Professionals'. 'Share This Too', the follow-up publication, is to be published in September 2013 by Wiley.
Who should attend?
'Share This Live' is for communications professionals who are looking to both improve and build upon their existing social media and digital skills, enabling them to manage media effectively in a new marketplace.
Previous CIPR social media conferences have attracted an international audience of between 150 – 200 senior public relations and communications directors, managers and officers from both small and large commercial enterprises, both in-house and consultancy side, from a selection of private, not-for-profit and public sector organisations.
