"Your conference or event is important to your organisation. You have key messages that you'd like to get across in a dynamic way to motivate your people into action or maybe just to think differently. You will want to hear stories and case studies from the world of Social Media, but perfectly pitched for your audience's knowledge level, and always to inspire action." - Maryrose Lyons
