What makes this event better than all the
other social media conferences out there?

Simple. An exclusive focus on business

Too many events in this area are populated by ‘social media gurus’ (read service providers and
consultants) as speakers, and discuss ‘social media issues’ in the broadest possible terms.

They’re barely relevant to a corporate audience at all.

The Corporate Social Media Summit is different. Why?

• 3 months of research with big companies, like Intel, Starbucks

and Toyota have ensured we know exactly what business needs when it comes
to social media use

• Exclusively corporate speakers - with representatives from

big companies like Opel, Vodafone, DHL, Cadbury, Honda and PepsiCo

• A tightly-focused agenda - dealing with the biggest issues facing

your company. Areas covered include:
• Design and implement a successful social media strategy for your business
• How to define and monitor social media success - measurement, metrics and KPIs
• Best practice to control your reputation online, spot opportunity and offset risk
• Understand and leverage the key characteristics of European social media

• An emphasis on practical, measurable strategies for business

• An audience of corporate communicators and marketers
– not consultants and service providers

The brightest minds in European corporate social media - all under one roof!
