Event: Creative conversations on attending to social media

Oscar Wilde famously said: “The only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about.”

How do you get attention when so many others are all adding to the noise? Is all attention good? How do you measure it, and more importantly, do you need to convert it? What can you actually use it for? How does this play out on social media – for brands or individuals? These are questions anyone dealing with an audience faces daily.
