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.
