Twitter Panel Debate
Twitter is getting huge amounts of attention but most brands (apart from Dell) seem to be unsure how to use it.
On Wednesday 29th April at 11am in the Keynote Theatre a panel of leading industry figures and global brands who have led the way in the social media revolution will share their experiences with the 13,000 expected Internet World visitors.
- Gareth Jones, editor, Revolution
- Ashley Friedlein, CEO, Econsultancy
- Kai Turner, Head of Information Architecture, agency.com
- Guy Stephens, Knowledge & Online Help Manager, Carphone Warehouse
The panel will address the following key issues:
- How to start using Twitter and how to understand the benefits for your organisation
- How to write relevant and powerful tweets, the doâ€™s and donâ€™ts, and how to monitor and react to the activity around your brand
- Tips and case-study-examples of successful campaigns, how to build followers, who to follow, applications to manage your campaigns, and how to resource effectively
The keynote theatre is packed full of great speakers and you probably wouldn’t go far wrong listening to them all. However there are 6 that really stand out for me and I’ve summarised them below:
