The Talk: 'You: the Media'

Who the talk is aimed at:
Those who know that anyone in their organisation with access to social media - even in their private capacity - has the potential to cause reputational damage to that organisation’s brand. This is the new normal in media and communications. This talk is especially relevant for those in an organisation entrusted with marketing and business brand imaging.

Brief explanation of talk:
It is a highly entertaining and illuminating talk about the unknown pitfalls facing social media users as the generators of media content, especially in an era of ‘fake news’, ‘post-truth politics’, and recurring ‘Twittergates’. It’ll make any social media user think carefully before they ‘post’, ‘share’, or ‘like’ something ever again. Uses Powerpoint/Keynote and demonstrations.
