The speakers include a legal perspective from lawyer Stephen von Muenster, the journalism perspective from Prof Mark Pearson and a regulatory perspective from the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s Julia Cornwell. The session will also examine case studies of brands that have found themselves in social media firestorms – and how they got through the crisis.

Kim McKay, boss of digitally-led PR agency Klick Communications will moderate the event.

The event is aimed at members of marketing teams whose brands use social media as a promotion tool, marketers whose brands might be discussed on social media; agency staffers likely to be responsible for assisting brands on social media strategies; agency staffers – whether from PR, media , digital or creative agencies – responsible for developing and overseeing social media strategies.
