The announcement:

Word of Mouth agency 1000heads will be hosting its first #HeadsUp event for 2013 on the 12th of February.

The free event series is based on a panel format with three experts discussing what lies ahead in a specific topic area, and what businesses can do to prepare.

The first series topic for 2013 is on Word Of Mouth, where 3 panellists share their experiences, answer questions about WOM as well as sharing insights on how it can enhance business strategy.

Panellists for the event:
Kate Carruthers
Kate is a business and IT strategist and is Director at Moore’s Cloud, a start-up with a connected intelligence lighting system as a product.  Kate is a Co-founder of Social Innovation Sydney and she regularly speaks on digital marketing and use of social networks for collaborative projects

Benjamin Barnett
Benjamin is Marketing and Community Manager at Yelp.com.au, a website and app that connects people with great local businesses. User generated reviews and an active community (both on- and off-line) are the essence of this business, making Yelp a company that recognises the importance of word of mouth.

Alex Adams
Alex is National Sales Executive at the group buying deals site, LivingSocial.  Participating in a social experience provides the context for reviews and recommendations, therefore Alex and his team are very aware of the importance of WOM for their business.

The #HeadsUp event will be held at the Shelbourne Hotel on Tuesday 12th February, with doors opening at 6pm and the panel starting sharp at 6:30pm.  The panel will go for one hour, with attendees able to remain and network after the main event.

At all #HeadsUp events, a significant amount of the panel time is dedicated to audience questions, so that attendees from a range of industries can have their particular questions addressed.

Joanne Jacobs, COO of 1000heads commented: “Australia is in desperate need of events that are accessible and which give business people from all sectors a chance to ask questions of experts. We designed #HeadsUp as a free event to address that need. And given what’s happening with the global economy, it’s crucial that the Australian business community supports each other in providing a heads-up on what can affect their strategy.”
