As brands get serious about social media, our Breakfast Briefing will ask whether the idea of personalisation at scale is feasible, or if it’s just a pipe dream.

Flying in from the USA, Chris Kerns will kick-off the event with a keynote revealing insights on the brands that manage 1-2-1 interactions. Chris is a frequent speaker at events like Advertising Week, SXSW, WOMMA Summit & AdTech, and author of Trendology, a book on the data behind real-time marketing. We’ve heard him present – he is smart, interesting and knows how to make you laugh.

Following Chris, we’ll be joined by a panel (to be revealed shortly) and get into the nitty-gritty detail by asking the challenging questions:

  • Can brands create 1-2-1 social relationships and not break the bank – Understanding the costs vs ROI of investing in closer customer relationships?

  • How can marketers achieve personalisation at scale? – Exploring how to structure your social marketing operations and balance the priorities that allow for individual conversations

  • What is the best practice for achieving rewarding relationships on social? – A pragmatic discussion on how brands actually achieve meaningful social relationships

Our second panel will be you. The panellists (#PanelFlip) will be asking questions of the audience. Meaning the smarts in the room can share more on the challenges of building social relationships. It gives us the opportunity to dig a bit deeper into the topic too.

We’ve joined forces with Spredfast to bring this brand-only event to you free of charge. Please join us on Tuesday 19th April at 8.30am (Plenty of coffee and pastries will be supplied)
